Simpson Rugby is getting ready to launch their spring spring 7s campaign and work its way to a national championship in Philadelphia May 31st-June 1st!
The Simpson College rugby team is on its way toward becoming a 7s national powerhouse. After finishing 4th in the country (NSCRO division) after only their first season, they are excited and ready to take on the challenges of their second season. Coach Norlin's vision is to see the establishment of a men's and women's program, each with 50 members, in span of five years. Each team will annually compete for national championships and place several players in the national team and Olympic team pools. Both teams will have received varsity status, or its equivalent. Simpson College will be the place rugby athletes want to continue playing the sport they have come to love.
Mission: Foster the intellectual, physical, emotional, and social growth of student-athletes by enabling them to compete to the highest level in the sport of rugby.

That Sevens Show hits the Beach in LA and it's a goodie. @seanny202 and @KT_Ten10 preview the #HSBC7s in LA while Perry Baker (@SpeedSt11ck) and (@Carlin_Isles) get competitive in hilarious game.
There is plenty of time to register. U-25 men’s and women’s team are welcome.
Here is great video for new players and fans.
It’s been a little bit since our last post. Here’s a quick update.
After 5 successful years at Simpson, Kelsie McDowell was ready for a new challenge at Iowa State University. She has proven she knows how to build a winning culture and will no doubt continue that at ISU. We wish her the best.
Matt Sillanpaa was brought on as conditioning coach. He has a wealth of knowledge and knows how to apply it to our sport. He has already made an impact as both squads went 2-1 in Iowa City this weekend.
Not too shabby for a bunch of newbies!
I’m really of proud of the effort and commitment everyone has put in, but especially the new players who have stuck it out without even really knowing what they were working for.
