Corning Rugby is a U-19 Rugby Club, multi-school community club, based in Corning, NY. The Lions support both a boys and girls side, competing the RugbyNY Western Division at the Division I and II levels respectively. RugbyNY is the state organization for USA Rugby.

The club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit committed to the providing the youth of the Southern Tier of NY the opportunity to play the game of rugby. Corning Rugby is 100% financed through member dues and fundraising efforts.

We’re excited about bringing the first youth rugby program to the Southern Tier, so I want to make sure the team is on your radar. We hope you’ll consider sharing this information with your family, friends, and community.

We have a coaching staff of nationally certified coaches, who work diligently to provide guidance and direction for both boys and girls who are members of the club. The primary goal of the Corning Rugby Club is to introduce young men and women to the game and traditions of rugby that we, as coaches, have enjoyed so much over the years.

Rugby is a legendary game that mixes strength, speed and agility. It’s a game that will forever welcome athletes of any size and shape. Successful rugby does require fitness and athleticism, but first and foremost it requires a person who is ready, willing and able to give it a go.

The sport is played in over 100 countries spanning six continents, by men and women of all ages. It’s the second most globally played sport and the Rugby World Cup is the third most viewed sporting event in the world. It’s a “life sport” because men and women continue to participate in rugby long after they leave high school.

Our season begins on April 7th in Syracuse, NY with our first home match on April 15th against Kenmore Rugby Club.

Robert McGee – Head Coach of Corning Rugby Club.
