DSC_0397The Bulldog’s Boys’ High School Rugby Program is committed to providing a superior rugby experience for Essex County high school boys.

Founded in 2010 with only 13 players, the program quickly developed to become one of the elite rugby programs in New England, with the boys team playing in the State High School Club Division Championship match in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Winning this state title in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

The team is a member of the Massachusetts Youth Rugby Organization and plays under Rugby Union rules (i.e., 15 players per side).  The Bulldogs play high school teams from Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. On occasion, we will tour other countries to learn about their culture and how rugby plays a part in their everyday life.
