High Country RFC – Fall 2015 Schedule

High Country RFC is pleased to release our Fall 2015 season schedule. We aim to build on the success of the Spring matrix season and to continue playing some great rugby in the city of Atlanta and Southeast.  We’ll start the season with skills and conditioning work leading to a grudge match with the Old Boys of past years who put so much into this team.  This will be followed by matches against some of High Country’s favorite rivals of past years and hosting startup Rome in their inaugural season as we continue to see this great sport grow.

Sizing Information: Please pay careful attention, as these have been noted to run a 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.

Phoenix Secure Invitation to HS National Championship Tournament

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.

Holiday Party and 2014 Wrap Up

Holiday Party 2014

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!
