Tradition of Excellence

Our Purpose

To build and maintain a 'rugby culture' through education and practice of the Laws of Rugby, responsibility, and respect for our teammates, as well as our opponents. We, as a team, will pursue this culture in a "fun and safe" environment. To compete for Chicago Catholic League and State titles. We, as a coaching staff, believe it is important to teach the laws and skills of the game, as well as build relationships and camaraderie that will last long after the student-athletes graduate.

Quote: It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.

-President Theodore Roosevelt (1858—1919)
