Thanks for visiting our website and we hope we can inspire you to become a player on one of our 2015 teams
whether it be our coed U13 team, our Girls team 14-18, U15 Boys, U17 Boys or U19 Boys.
We welcome anyone who has the desire to find out more about becoming a rugby player. Join the many past and present Rainier Highlanders who began
with a minimal knowledge of playing rugby but ended up loving the game. Many of our players have gone on to play in college or
on one of the local adult club teams.
Our spring 15 aside has concluded and will resume in January 2016, however an ideal opportunity to get an introduction to rugby in the next few months is the Summer 7's.
Our sevens program is open to new players who were not involved during our spring season and are prepared to teach new players the skills and tactics of playing sevens. We don't expect new players to have any knowledge or background in rugby and are very experienced in introducing the game to female and male athletes in a safe and fun manner.

The Rainier Girls and U15 & 19 Boys teams recently all featured in the State Championship Finals and involved a large number of players
playing rugby for the first time. Our U19 team won the Division 2 championship and our other
teams were runners up. Our first ever U13 side ended the season undefeated and our U17 side
were state semi finalists. Our Lady Highlanders also completed a tour to Vancouver Island
Canada during their spring season.
These performances were an ideal way to end the 2015 season and create excitement and enthusiasm for the 2016 Spring Season.
Please check our schedule page and calendar for our fall touch rugby sessions which are ideal for
athletes considering rugby as a spring sport.
