PM Off The Pitch

Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech is called home by nearly 31,000 Hokies. Located in Southwest Virginia, Virginia Tech boasts a strong research portfolio and takes pride in its engineering department. The Virginia Tech Rugby Club was founded in 1968, but was played on campus as far back as 1891. The program truly promotes student-athletes ensuring the academic career is prioritized over all else. With close to 70 players involved in the program and full schedules in Fall and Spring, rugby is considered a year round sport. The program continues to grow and benefits from the great rugby high schools in the DC metropolitan area. In the past Virginia Tech competed in the Atlantic Coastal Rugby League (ACRL) and enjoyed rivalries against the likes of Clemson, UVA, and Maryland. The Hokies have recently switched conferences and will now compete in the Chesapeake Collegiate Rugby Conference (CCRC). The CCRC will continue to garnish the high level of play expected at Virginia Tech. Excited to be back for the 4th consecutive year at the Penn Mutual Collegiate Rugby Championship, the Hokies fully dedicated 7s team has been training since December. The coaching staff includes Mike Lee, James Ivory, Craig Bucher and head coach Paul Caron.
