Welcome to Hopkins Royals Rugby
We are an independent rugby football club that comprises of several teams for school age youth. The four rugby teams are: Boys Varsity (U19), Boys Junior Varsity (U17), a Varsity Girls team, and a Bantam (grades 6-8) team.
Our goal is to provide training and recreational rugby for boys and girls of school age in the Hopkins area. While the game is intense and physical, the sport has a place for all body types, and all levels of experience and skill.
Youth rugby builds strong self confidence and camaraderie by participating in a sport where sportsmanship is not just a word but is embraced and expected by the sport worldwide.
Hopkins Royals Rugby teams have won many State championships over the years:
Boys Varsity - 2007 & 2013
Boys Junior Varsity - 2008, 2010, & 2013
Girls - 1999
