Penn State - Collegiate Rugby Championship

Penn State

By on

Founded in 1962, Penn State Rugby is one of the most successful collegiate rugby programs in the United States, consistently fielding teams that compete for the National Championship.

The Penn State Rugby program is classified by the University as a Team Sport rather than a Club Sport as is found with most collegiate rugby programs, and as such is located in Penn State’s Intercollegiate Athletics Department. With benefits that include paid coaching and administration staffs, varsity health insurance, athletic trainers at all rugby events, varsity weight room and strength and conditioning coaches, direct medical referrals to PSU team doctors for evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation, admissions support, and an academic support program, the team gets as much University administrative and medical support as any rugby program in the country-including “varsity” programs.

Penn State Rugby is an organization that combines both of our highly successful teams, a dedicated University and administrative staff, and an alumni organization and network that is over 1600 members strong, into one singular program dedicated to being a flagship in U.S. collegiate rugby.

A participant since its inception, this is the third trip to the CRC’s for the Penn State 7’s program which has shown marked improvement in each year’s tournament. With process improvements in preparation, and year round 7’s training now being a part of the program’s overall training matrix, the team is poised to build on their quarterfinal performance last year where the Lions lost a close match to eventual champions Dartmouth.

Lead by several key returning players, including captain and All American #9 Chris Saint at pivot, the Nittany Lions are hopeful that the 2012 CRC’s will be a memorable one.
