About Us


Morris Rugby was formed in 1977 by a group of rugby players looking for a team of their own within the Morris area. Since its creation Morris Rugby has grown tremendously and is now a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As a club we are dedicated to the growth of rugby for all ages and abilities.  Our tackle programs include both Boys and Girls teams for under 12/14's, High School, Men's, Women's and Master for the over 35's. During early summer the Morris Youth League, which includes several local town teams, provides an opportunity for kids Kindergarten to 9th Grade to play flag rugby with mini tournaments during June and July.
