Our Rugby program is at it’s genesis. Approved as a fully sponsored sport by the Abbey Athletics Department in December 2019, our first class will be welcomed in August of 2020. Crusaders Rugby will be taking careful consideration and deliberation as to which competition they will enter with options being USA Rugby’s National Division II or the NSCRO Championship. We have fully staffed strength and conditioning programs for all Athletic teams and our own athletic training staff on site.
