New Paltz RFC

New Paltz RFC was founded in 1985 as a club sport at SUNY New Paltz. The team plays in the Tri-State Rugby Conference against schools from New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey.  New Paltz RFC plays in both a typical fifteens season during the fall and a sevens season in the spring. The team is always looking for ways to give back to our community, including anything from fundraising to volunteering!
