About Us

Something For Everyone!

The Westside Rugby Football Club, USA Rugby, and Rugby Indiana are committed to ensuring a positive Rugby experience for everyone. We provide league wide benefits for our coaches, parents, and players of all ages (flag through high school varsity).

Rugby is a great sport to improve confidence, physical and mental health, whether played competitively or recreationally.

Kids that play rugby enjoy several physical, social, and mental benefits, which will bode well with them as they approach their adulthood and beyond. It also promotes teamwork, keeps kids out of mischief, and boosts the concentration level of a child. Most importantly Westside Rugby provides a sense of belonging and family and once you are family, you are family for life.

Furthermore, rugby offers kids – whether small or large, slim or heavy, short or stout, agile or speedster – equal opportunities to run with the ball, pass it, and play defense. There is a position for every body type out there.

In rugby, everyone participates that way; nobody gets left out.

 Serving Our Rugby Community Since 2009


The Westside Rugby Football Club began in 2009, inspired by a group of rugby players from the Westside of Indianapolis who wanted to give their kids the best coaching experience. Year after year our Rugby and Touch sections have grown enormously.

We share expertise and benefit from talented coaches many who still play rugby for the adult section of the WRFC (the Outcasts) and some who regularly play or coach for the Marion and IUPUI college teams, making us stand out as a junior rugby club in Indiana.

One of the goals of the founders of the WRFC was to provide a unique transition from youth to junior to adult rugby. Our mens Grade 9-12 squad (the Black Swarm) achieved national ranking for the start of the 2022 Spring Season.

The Westside Black Swarm (High School Boys) are the current 2023 Fall 7s State Champions, just completing their second back-to-back perfect seasons.

The Westside Revenge (High School Girls) just completed their second regular season – 2023 Fall 7s – and placed first in the state – Indiana Girls 7s Champions.
