Touch Rugby @ Cornell

We are a co-ed group of players gathered to get fit, learn a new sport, work on skills and to have fun. Experience levels range from people who have never heard of rugby to former USA National players. There’s no contact besides the very light touch.

People from all backgrounds and experience levels are encouraged to come out and try this fun sport!
