Practice is held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:45pm to 9:15 pm at 16987 Paluxy Drive, Whitehouse, TX 75791. Players - especially those new to the sport - are encouraged to arrive about 10 minutes early.

The sport of rugby is played with hardly any equipment making it very accessible to new players. However, we strongly encourage both new and experienced players to bring a few items to practice:

  • Cleats: Rugby boots or soccer cleats may be worn but football cleats cannot be used.

  • Clothing: Weather appropriate clothing suitable for physical activity and strong physical contact.

  • Mouthguard: A strapless mouthguard. Top half only.

  • Water: Stay well hydrated.

  • Towel: Rugby is played even in inclement weather conditions. It's recommended to bring a towel.

After practice on Thursdays, the Hoplites enjoy a little social fun while supporting one of our sponsors - The Garage Bar.

Michael Gibson from KNUE joined us for a practice and the video below gives you an idea of what to expect:
