With both men’s and a women’s sides, the Tyler Hoplites Rugby Football Club is always looking for new recruits. Training is open to players of all positions and skill levels. We welcome all newcomers, even those completely new to the game of rugby. One of the many great things about rugby is that different positions call for different body types. There's a position for everyone. 


We hope you will come out to practice! For our practice location, dates and times, please click here.

We strongly encourage new players to jump right into practice, but new players are always invited to watch our training sessions as well. If you have any questions, you can contact us directly via email at, message us through the form on the :Contact Us" tab, or message us on our Facebook Page. If you are planning to practice with us, please complete an online application before you come to practice by clicking here or complete a paper copy at practice.

If you’re new to the game, we recommend bringing a mouth guard and molded rugby or soccer cleats with you to practice. It can also be helpful to familiarize yourself with some of the rules and terminology. You can find a beginner's guide to rugby here. The video below also captures the basics.
