PLAY YOUR RUGBY WITH THE SJ DEVILS!
South Jersey Rugby Football Club (SJRFC) was founded in the fall of 1969 by John DeCoste and Casey McKee, both of whom are still active participants.
Our club is comprised of more than 100 active members of all ages, along with a host of retirees known as the Olde Guarde (SJOG).
The SJRFC has a men’s team, a women's team as well as U-19 teams for boys and girls.
We play together on and off the pitch, traveling the world (we’re heading to Ireland for our 50th Anniversary from 9-16th August) and maintaining a busy social calendar at home.
From the World Rugby Charter
“Rugby is valued as a sport for men and women, boys and girls. It builds teamwork, understanding, co-operation and respect for fellow athletes. Its cornerstones are, as they always have been: the pleasure of participating; the courage and skill which the Game demands; the love of a team sport that enriches the lives of all involved; and the lifelong friendships forged through a shared interest in the Game. It is because of, not despite, Rugby’s intensely physical and athletic characteristics that such great camaraderie exists before and after matches. The long-standing tradition of players from competing teams enjoying each other’s company away from the pitch and in a social context, remains at the very core of the Game. Rugby has fully embraces the professional era, but has retained the ethos and traditions of the recreational Game. In an age in which many traditional sporting qualities are being diluted or even challenged, Rugby is rightly proud of its ability to retain high standards of sportsmanship, ethical behaviour, and fair play. It is hoped that this Charter will help reinforce those cherished values.”
Rookie Rugby (ages 7-12) will take place at the home pitch every Saturday from 9 AM - 10:30 AM starting 14 Sep, running through 2 Nov. Cost is 20$ per participant. Join one of the fastest growing sports in the USA!
