Founded in 2008, The Palatine Rugby Club is a member of Rugby Illinois (formerly the Illinois Youth Rugby Association) and USA Rugby which is a member of the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) and the International Rugby Board (IRB)). We are affiliated with the Palatine Park District and the Salt Creek Park District.

 In April, we are honored to host players and coaches from the Fontenay Lucon Rugby Sud Vendee – the local youth rugby club of our French sister city: Fontenay-le-Comte.  2015 marks the 20th anniversary of our two cities’ friendship.

We field these rugby teams:

Palatine Barbarians High School Boys Rugby

Palatine Juggernauts High School Girls Rugby

Palatine Pioneers Middle School Rugby

Palatine Raptors U23 Mens Olympic Rugby 7s

Palatine Rookies U13 Coed Non-Contact Rugby

Rugby Runners All Ages Running Group

We welcome new players at all times.  No experience is necessary.
 We will teach you to play Rugby safely and well.

A certified athletic trainer is present at each Rugby match.
