Ridge Rugby is a U19 High School rugby program open to all residents of Somerset and Hunterdon Counties. We have both a Boys’ team and a Girls’ team. If you haven’t tried playing rugby yet, now is the time!
Both the Boys’ and Girls’ programs are run as a full-contact sports activity with matches scheduled against other local community and single school programs, as part of the NJ State Based Rugby Organization (SBRO). We also may enter into 2 or 3 tournaments during the season to introduce players to teams from outside the local area.
We play full schedules in both Fall and Spring, as well as 7s Rugby in the Summer.
Fall practices start in September and continue until mid-November. Spring practices start in early March and continue until early June. Boys practices are held on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Girls’ practices are held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Matches and tournaments are generally played on Sundays. We also field both Boys’ and Girls’ Summer 7’s teams.
There is no obligation to play both seasons – we have players who choose to only play in the Fall or only in the Spring.
Our home field is located at the Lyons VA Medical Center in Liberty Corner, New Jersey.
We play in the Blue Division of Rugby New Jersey. Teams in our Division include Morris, Bridgewater, Union, Bergen, Jersey Shore and the West Milford Highlanders. We also play against teams from New York and Pennsylvania.
If you are a high school-age 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.
