For 27 years, the Royal Irish Rugby Society 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. Also, the club has won the Indiana State Championship twelve times and the Midwest Championship for the last six years.
Inclusiveness, camaraderie, and respect for the other team and the officials are fundamental values in our program.
Players come chiefly from Cathedral and Bishop Chatard high schools but there's participation from Ritter, Herron and Lutheran high schools.
Unselfishness, teamwork and self-control largely define rugby. Rugby athletes are known for their versatility, sportsmanship and athleticism, no matter their size.
It's been said that rugby is a rough game played by gentlemen.
