Welcome to New England Rugby Club

NERC is a Co-Ed Youth Rugby Organization which specializes in Rookie and Youth Rugby, which is played by children in the United States in Grades K-8

We focus on the developmental approach of Rugby to all who wish to partake in the sport. We believe in setting up rugby players to be successful on and off the pitch by instilling the core values of commitment, community, and compassion. All of which is part of our "As One" philosophy

"As One" refers to the commitment all players have on and off the pitch in their daily lives. It is showing up one time ready to go so we get the most out of the time we have. It is communicating effectively and efficiently with parents to ensure they have an understanding of all happenings,  present and future. It is knowing that when we all work together, there is nothing that we can not accomplish as all our talents and knowledge help advance us to a better community as a whole.


We are now accepting Summer Registrations for our Summer 2024 Season.

Will truly LOVES it! New England Rugby Club has taught him so much, developed his Rugby IQ, increased his confidence, we have met some wonderful people along the way and most importantly he has a blast each and every time he plays!

This dude doing what he loves with a great group of kids and amazing coaches! He's on the cusp of moving from flag to tackle rugby due to his age. He got played with his flag team and got even a bit of field time with the tackle team he will be joining next year. Thank you Brad Nathan & New England Rugby Club

Recounting Peader's Rugby scrimmage tonight to my husband and he said exactly what I always feel, "These coaches are incredible." We are blown away by Brad Nathan and his coaches. They push Peader out of his comfort zone while giving equal amounts of encouragement leaving him saying "Rugby is THE sport". If I could impart anything to all other leagues we've experienced, it would be their coaching style because it sets the example for players as well.
