About Our Organization
The Marist Men’s Rugby Club has approximately 35 active team members, and each of our student-athletes is a part of our Red Fox family. All of our team members truly enjoy playing rugby and competing for our team. The culture of the team is a point of pride, and our team supports one another both on and off the field. Our team welcomes players of all abilities and is willing to teach first-time players the rules during training sessions. Marist men's rugby is able to teach the sport through a combination of experienced players and our coach, who has been playing rugby for more than 15 years. We encourage anyone who is interested to join the Marist Rugby family.
Off the field, our team annually participates and donates to the Special Olympics through the Fishkill Polar Plunge.
