Survey Says!

The Board of Directors would like to thank all the players, parents and volunteers for another great season! We have experienced another year of  significant growth, and as we continue to meet the challenges of a growing club, field management and match scheduling, we would like to get your feedback. This is your opportunity to let us know what is working and where we can improve. We value your input and we look forward to hearing from you.  Please take a moment to fill out this brief survey.


Texas Children’s Hospital- Our New Medical Team


We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Texas Children’s Hospital- Sports Medicine Team. The team consists of an Athletic Trainer,  Susan Niles and Dr. Kristin Ernest. During our home matches, we will now have a dedicated team on the sidelines to assess and treat injured players.  Because a child’s bones, muscles, brain and other organs are different than an adult, they respond much differently to injuries, stress and athletic training, and require comprehensive, specialized treatment.


Having the TCH med team present helps all our players who sustain any type of  injury get the care they need and they will be a great resource for follow-up care, if needed.

Welcome to the pitch, Texas Children’s Hospital. We hope you enjoy our fast paced matches!

Photo Gallery

We are so very  fortunate to have parents show us their photographic talents and share those pictures with us.  Most notably, Chuck Macune takes some incredible action shots and we are ever grateful for his time and talent.  To check out the galleries please click here and you will be directed to our SmugMug site.


Fixtures Are Complete

We’re pleased to announce that most of the fixtures for all sides have been posted.  Keep in mind, while these dates are set, there can be last minute changes that occur.  The calendar is laid out in agenda style, meaning each event will be listed individually. You can click on CALENDAR view to get a monthly view of events. When you hover over your team of interest, the information will be highlighted so you can see the who, what, when. Again, keep in mind last minute locations, weather issues and other circumstances may change an event status.  You can subscribe to the calendar to your iCal, Google+ , Outlook, etc. Simply change the view to calendar mode and scroll down to the bottom right side of the calendar where you will see the “Subscribe” button.

Woodlands Youth Rugby Club Sponsorship

The Woodlands Youth Rugby Club is a non-profit youth sports organization with the mission and vision to promote, encourage and facilitate access to rugby to young members of our community from the ages of ten through eighteen. While many of our players come from northern Harris and Montgomery counties, players from any and all school districts are accepted allowing players to bond with a diverse group of teammates.

Growing Popularity:

Rugby is an international sport and the fastest growing sport in the US. Our players have the opportunity to meet other players throughout the United States as well as internationally.  We have hosted teams from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Chicago, Louisiana as well as many from here in Texas.  Rugby is a unique sport that accommodates players of different abilities and body types.  Male, female, tall, short, slight of build, heavily muscled they all have a place on our rugby teams. Since its inception in 2001, our club has sponsored players with financial needs as well as travel to matches, tournaments and playoffs.

Rugby makes its return to the Olympics next summer in the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.  Both the men and women’s USA Eagles will proudly represent the US.  Meya Bizer, a Woodlands Rugby alum, will be on the women’s team.

Community Impact and Successes:

The Woodlands Youth Rugby Club impacts the community by providing its players the opportunity to interact with a very diverse group of teammates and competitors.  It fosters a love of the game and deep sense of camaraderie which lasts well into adult hood.  The Club teaches good sportsmanship and emphasizes the highest level of conduct in the players who represent it. We have an elite class of coaches who all serve on a volunteer basis.  Many of our players have gone on to play at the Texas Elite, and U.S. Junior Eagle levels, and a majority of our players have been, or are currently active on college teams around the country to include, Life University, Texas A&M, Penn State, LSU, University of Texas, Arkansas State, and Arizona State.

What your sponsorship means:

Woodlands Youth Rugby Club works hard to keep registration costs at the lowest level possible. Due to increased field costs (double) and additional fees associated with registration, referees etc., we are unable to fund scholarships at the same level.  One way we do this is through fundraising and corporate sponsorship!  Your help in regard to this mission would be greatly appreciated, and the Woodlands Youth Rugby Club Board of Directors, Coaches, and players thank you for your time and consideration.
