Excedi Universum

The West Potomac RFC motto is Excedi Universum, “Everything in Excess.”  We have established an award to honor those players who have exemplified this during their careers with the club. The award recognizes:

1 – Longevity in providing on the field contributions as a Young Boy and/or Old Boy in accordance with the West Potomac Values;
2 – Length of service to the club in elected positions to include Officer, Captain and/or Coaching roles; and,
3 – Enhancing and growing the sense of community both within the Club as well as the greater Washington, D.C. region.

The Excedi Universum Award has been established as the highest honor that WPRFC can award to any team member – and has been in their honor.  In addition, the Excedi Universum Fund has been established to recognize their contributions and help improve team operations. This Strategic Fund is focused on improving team competitiveness through additional coaching, clinics, equipment

Often the recipients of the Excedi Universum Award have provided cash flow to the club for decades.

We wish all of the West Potomac Rugby Football Club, current and former players, WAGs and social members as well as our sponsors (Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company and Lorton Stone) a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Our thoughts are with those that serve our communities and nation and cannot be home during the holidays. We are proud to have a tradition of active duty military, veterans and public servants on the team.

Happy Holidays and Excedi Universum!

The end of the third paragraph!

It's addressed to Gessner. The date must be a typo. It should read 1883.

The newsletters were excellent read. Received them for a few years after leaving the D.C area and living the next duty station! Ski 🏉

Fortunately we are a far more open minded club these days and have worked with an excellent Gay Mens Rugby Club and supported a women's shelter in the region...among other charities reflecting our belief in treating everyone off the rugby pitch with respect. On the rugby pitch is another story.
