The Furman University Rugby Club was established in 1998 and has become one of the top rugby programs in the country.
Furman University is very unique in the sense that we are one of the very few places where “Higher Education” and “High-Level Rugby” intersect.
During their time at Furman, our student-athletes will compete for National Championships & National Honor Society recognition. From year to year, we are always competitive on the pitch and typically 25%-30% of our team is on the university’s Dean’s List.
Our players have been selected to All-Conference teams, Collegiate All American Camps, and earned International Caps. Our graduates have gone on to pursue their post-graduate degrees at institutions such as NYU, Fordham, MUSC, Georgetown, and Vanderbilt.
We have an amazing dedicated natural grass stadium that has been selected to host multiple USA Rugby National Championship events. We operate two mentorship programs that are designed to help our student-athletes with both the in-bound (arriving freshmen) and out-bound (graduating seniors) process.
The team’s Head Coach is USA Rugby Level 300 certified and has been involved with the USA Collegiate All American training sessions for the past two years.
