Happy New Year to all our Conestoga Rugby Families! We are all excited to get this new season underway after missing last season due to COVID. We, as an organization, are working to get registration up and running and organize practice schedules for the coming months but in the meantime we wanted to share with you some information so you can start to plan for the season.
We are targeting January 21, 2021 as the date to open registration where you can register your player online.
Our annual kickoff meeting will be on January 26th and will be a virtual meeting whereas you will be able to dial in to participate. Agenda and times for the meeting will follow shortly.
Practices will begin on February 8th beginning with two days a week focusing on conditioning and basic rugby skills/technique.
On March 1, we will begin "formal" practices including scrimmages.
The first games of the season will start on Sunday, April 11. Schedule, opponents and locations for the first games are still to be determined.
Conestoga Rugby will be following the health and safety guidelines laid out by the district and health department as it pertains to COVID 19. For high school students, the same requirements that are used for school attendance and sports will be used for Rugby while our Youth and Junior teams will have a similar Google Doc that must be signed before every practice. These details will be explained further during our kickoff meeting and through future correspondence.
We look forward to getting the kids on the grass and outside so please follow the website for additional information and register as soon as we open!
Thanks everyone and GO STOGA!!!

On May 19th at the Penn State Berks County Campus the undefeated Conestoga Junior Boys team played a very determined Berks County team for the State Championship. With 14 min to play, our team was playing from behind for the first time all season and their team grit was put to the ultimate challenge. With an inspirational team effort and a belief to play until the very end, our team scored the go-ahead try with 40 seconds left in the game and secured our first Juniors State Championship! Congratulations to all the players, coaches and parents for making the 2019 season one to remember for years to come!
On May 19th the 2019 Conestoga Girls Rugby team played Kiski Valley High School at the Penn State Berks County Campus for the State Championship. Under the guidance of first year head coach, Jenna Ponto, the team embarked on one of the greatest team turnarounds in our clubs history to advance to the State Championship for their first time. Our girls put together an inspirational performance while playing short handed in the final minutes of the game. With the games outcome hanging in the balance they played hard and they played together until the final whistle. While their bid fell just short of the title, they succeeded in announcing to the league that the Conestoga Girls Rugby team is here and ready for another championship run! Congratulations to the players, coaches and parents for an inspirational season and bring on the 2020 season!

If you are interested in being a sponsor please email email@example.com. The Conestoga Varsity Boys Rugby team have also been doing leaf raking in the community to raise money for our bi-annual spring break tour. The boys get to play multiple games and stay with local families all while experiencing a culture interwoven in the sport of rugby. After raking leaves some of our boys took it upon themselves to ask Santa to help!!

Your High School season is over. Your players are already making plans to play other sports during the winter and the spring. What should they play?
In the spring, especially, football coaches find themselves at odds with their players’ choices. But what if your players could play a sport that not only keeps them in shape for football, but actually makes them better football players? The sport is out there, it’s called rugby, and strangely enough some football coaches won’t let their athletes play the game.
These fine organizations make what we do possible. Please show your support to these amazing sponsors and thank them for their commitment to our organization. Interested in becoming a sponsor? Click here to learn more about our sponsorship opportunities.
