Reserve the date! June 6, 2015 is our team’s annual boil and awards banquet. Always a blast and hosted by the gracious folks at High Country Adventures in Ocoee, TN. The weekend involves camping, rafting, awesome food, bands, and a bunch of rugby players having a good time with their best friends. If you’re a part of the High Country family you need to be here to experience our 40th anniversary celebration. To book contact High Country Adventures at 800.233.8594.

Congratulations to the men and women of High Country! Following the longest and one of the most challenging matrix schedules the team has ever undertaken High Country received the number 3 seed in the Georgia Rugby Union 2015 Playoffs with a 7-2 (W-L) record. We are proud to be given the opportunity to compete against some of the best teams in the Atlanta area and the state for the Georgia Championship and look forward to continued success!
These will have the same look and material as our newest competition set. Social jersey price is $55 if paying by cash or check (made payable to HCRFC, Inc.) or $57 if using credit card or Paypal – see the convenient button on the right hand side. If you need to have it shipped please add an additional $6. All orders must be prepaid and we will be closing orders on March 2.
Sizing Information: Please pay careful attention, as these have been noted to run aa bit small.
The chest measurements are from the vendor and length was measured from the side edge of the collar to the bottom (inches). General rule of thumb is order your normal shirt size if you want form fit, one size up for a relaxed fit.
High Country Rugby would like congratulate Alpharetta Phoenix Rugby for its recent invitation to participate in the High School National Championship Tournament. Our club is very proud to see a High Country legacy in Chris Bagby, son of Paul Bagby, achieving success as a player with the Phoenix. Unlike his father, Chris has been noted to be “a polite, gifted, handsome young man”. Congrats to the Bagby family for establishing a tradition of rugby excellence.
We would like to thank everyone who came to our team’s holiday events this December. In total we had nearly 70 team members and supporters join us in addition to a very festive Old Boys gathering of 40 of the most interesting characters you’ll ever have the chance to meet. It was a great opportunity to gather as one big rugby family and to enjoy this time of year. It shows that bonds formed on the field go well beyond it. If you are not receiving information on our social events and key matches you can go to the “About Us” tab on this site and request to be added to our mailing list or you can periodically check out our Facebook site. We are looking forward to a great start with the upcoming 2015 matrix season and playing some of the best rugby in the Atlanta area!
Following 8 weeks of training and playing solid rugby we will be taking Tuesday 10/14 off. Thursday 10/16 will be a lighter practice with a focus on developing individual player skills. We will resume our normal training schedule next week. Note that the Little 5 Points Halloween Parade is on Saturday Oct 18 and the team will again be entering a float. Bring lots of candy to share with the kids and let’s have a great time!
