Most of our players are new to the sport of rugby so we are always working on learning and practicing the fundamentals of the game. We work a lot on tackling form and technique, rucking and mauling, scrums and lineouts, and the principles of attack and defense. Playing the game safely and competitively is our focus.
Most of our players live in the south suburbs of Chicago (including New Lenox, Tinley Park, Manhattan, Homer Glen, Lockport, Joliet, Mokena, Orland Park, and Frankfort).
