Royal Irish Rugby is about...

RUGBY

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. It is not football without pads! Rugby requires special tackling techniques. The ref, called Sir, is there to enforce fair and proper play.

PARTICIPATION

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.  Players come chiefly from Cathedral and Bishop Chatard high schools but we welcome players from any high school in the Indianapolis and suburban areas without a rugby program. 

WINNING TRADITION

For 28 years, Royal Irish has been one of the most successful high school programs in the country, with four National Championship titles: 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2017. In 2018, after a heart-stopping final, Royal Irish came in second place. In addition, the club won the Indiana State Championship thirteen times, including 2018, and the Midwest Championship for six years. The club’s motto is teaching boys to become gentlemen through the sport of rugby.
