Practices are usually held Mondays and Wednesdays from 6-8 pm at Memorial Field, 451 Zach Curlin Street. Meet at Memorial Field at 5:30 to kit up and be ready for the first run at 6:00. (Call Coach Hill to confirm.)
Practice starts promptly at 6:00. Players should be early to practice (5:30) taped, pooped, stretched and ready to run by 6:00. The captain will start the first run at 6:00. Players who miss the initial run (or who bail out of practice to go poop) are expected to stay for APC (After Practice Club) which is usually run by the baddest and fittest players on the club.
Players should be kited to play rugby with cleats, rugby shorts and sturdy shirts suitable for tackling and being tackled. Don’t forget your mouth guards. On days when the field is unplayable, practice may be inside and players should bring court shoes. Practice is only cancelled when school is closed due to weather. Drills are organized to maximize fitness and prepare players for 80 minutes of competitive rugby.
All students (UM and Southwest) interested in playing for the Tigers are encouraged to come out to play. Play time is based on commitment to practice and the team, then to fitness and skills. All players are accepted based on their ability to be team players.
