Unselfishness, teamwork, and self-control largely define rugby. Rugby athletes are known for their versatility, sportsmanship, and athleticism, no matter their size. It has been said that rugby is a physical game played by gentlemen.
Inclusiveness, camaraderie, respect for the other team and the officials are fundamental values in our program. Our players come from different schools but develop a brotherhood-like bond. We welcome players from any high school in the Indianapolis and suburban areas without a rugby program.
For 31 years, Royal Irish Rugby has been one of the most successful high school rugby programs in the country, with four National Championship titles in 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017. The club has won the Indiana Championship thirteen times, including 2019.
The club’s motto is teaching boys to become gentlemen through the sport of rugby.
