Ridge Rugby is a Rugby Union Team for high school-age boys living in Somerset County, New Jersey. Ridge Rugby is a member of USA Rugby (www.usarugby.org) and Rugby New Jersey, the New Jersey Youth Rugby sanctioning body (www.rugbynewjersey.com).
We play full schedules in both Fall and Spring, as well as 7s Rugby in the Summer.
Fall practices run from the beginning of September (after school starts) until the beginning of November. Spring practices start in early March and continue until early June. All outdoor training sessions and home matches are held at the Lyons VA Medical Center on Knollcroft Road (field at the end of Circle II) on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, 3:30 to 5:30 PM. Fall and Spring matches are generally played on Sundays.
Our home field is located at the Lyons VA Medical Center in Liberty Corner, New Jersey.
We play in Division 2 of Rugby New Jersey. Teams in our Division include Morris, Bridgewater, Union, Bergen, South Jersey and West Milford. Other teams in the League include Monmouth, Cape Storm, Delbarton, Christian Brothers Academy, St. Peters Prep, St. Augustine Prep and Hudson Catholic. We also play against teams from New York, including New York Rugby Club.
If you are a high school-age male resident of Somerset County , we would be happy to talk to you about joining – no experience required!
We also welcome adults who would like help out as coaches, assistants and managers.
