About

Founded in 1963, West Potomac RFC is the 2nd oldest active rugby club in Washington, D.C. The team attracts many players with and without rugby playing experience who enjoy the club’s close-knit social fellowship and enthusiastic level of play.


West Pot is well known for its willingness to train new ruggers from scratch and fields a Division III men’s side and a Summer 7’s team as well as a Masters (35 and older) side. We also pride ourselves on continuing our sport’s finest social traditions including singing rugby songs. The club is registered with the national governing rugby body, USA Rugby, and competes in the Capital Rugby Union (CGU), which includes clubs in the District of Columbia, Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.

West Pot players can often be found on invitational touring sides and we have sent teams to play in New Zealand, South Africa, Ireland, Wales, Amsterdam, Taiwan, and France. International tours are an important tradition of amateur and professional rugby teams alike, as they give players the opportunity to bond with teammates and test themselves against better teams and regional styles of play.

In addition to men’s rugby, West Pot is currently working to develop relationships with several local youth, high school, U-23 and college teams in the area to support the growth of the sport and strengthen the organization’s ties to the community.  We take our status as a 501(c)(3) non-profit seriously and work to promote the sport and participate in community-based philanthropic activities.  As long as there is beer.

For those of you played with me in the 2000s, rest assured that cane was not for hitting players who scrum too high. Robb Stout Jack Meyers John Carroll Mike Fletcher Nicole Cain Dave Gedeon Jason Hewgley Jackie M. Kelly Jr.

That is a beautiful photo with the lights etc. Can someone photoshop to remove the soccer goal and frame it for me?
