Coach`s Welcome

When I first came to USI, the rugby club welcomed me with open arms and I was able to grow into a well-rounded rugby player. Camaraderie and grit are what have defined this club's culture since the '90s. We will continue to build on that culture and pick up where those groups left off. Coaching rugby isn't just about winning or improving their skills, it's about helping them grow as leaders and men so they leave the pitch a better man than when they first stepped foot on it.
