Join The Team
Men and Women, whether you’re a veteran, novice or newcomer player, you will be made to feel most welcome as part of our club. We look forward to welcoming you in person.
If you have any further questions or need any additional information, please send an email to Sam Nelson otherwise known as “The Ginger” and we will be happy to help you out.
The following information is designed to provide you with the essential information to allow your transition into our club to be as smooth as possible:
New players will need to have or purchase the following:
• Rugby/soccer boots/cleats to play in.
• Pair of socks (orange).
• Pair of white rugby shorts.
[The club will organize for a group purchase of the socks and shorts. Typically the cost for both items ranges from $25 to $30 for both items.] Game jerseys are provided by the club on the day of the game.
Checking on our calender will give you the most up to date information on home and away games. Matches generally kick off at 2.00 pm, but all players will be expected to arrive an hour or more before kickoff to assist with setting up and marking the field. We car pool to away games and return to Orlando in the evening.
POST GAME PARTY:
It is a tradition in rugby for the home club to host the visitors for a beer or two, after the game. Please feel free to invite family and friends to both watch the games and join us for the party – the more the merrier.
We will also host other social events (e.g. Christmas Party) from time to time. Again, you are welcome to invite family and friends to attend.

Finally, remember that a club is only as strong as the commitment of all its members. This is very much your club even though you might be new. We all have a role to play in the success of this club, so take pride in being an Orlando Rugby Player, take ownership in this club, and join us being committed to its success both on an off the field.
