🌸Hoping everyone had a joyous and love-filled Mother’s Day! 🌸

A few Rugby Reminders:
-We welcome all experience levels (including none at all)!
-Rugby is a diverse sport: all body sizes, shapes, colors and creeds are welcome and encouraged! There is ALWAYS a spot for you.
-For practice you’ll need a pair of cleats and a mouthguard. That’s it!
-Rugby is played in rain, shine or snow. We’re a hardy bunch!
-We follow rugby culture strongly and stick to traditions as best we can. This sport has changed the lives of all who play- and we hope it will do the same for you.

We are still having 6pm practice every Thursday at 601 S. Holt Road, Indianapolis- behind the Legion! Come meet your new family!
