Varsity Rugby

We were founded by Mike Segretto and other Cadets of the 04-05 class as a student club overseen by student activities and Captain Kehoe. Major Harris was the first coach of CMA’s "club" team. In 2005 Lane Pratt ‘06’ Club President and Jake Seberger ‘06’ asked current coach Darrell Knowlton to assist due to Major Harris being deployed to active duty.

In 2009 the club was moved from a “student club” to Varsity Status. We currently have about 50 players in the program. We have Varsity, Junior Varsity, and Developmental sides. Every Cadet that is on the team plays rugby in competitive games, throughout the season. Very few players come to the Academy with rugby experience and therefore a student does not need prior rugby training to play. We have many “crossover” athletes from a wide variety of sports.

We currently play in Rugby Indiana Super League (North Division), which is one of the toughest leagues in the country . Our home field is the Culver Academies Fleet Field on the old grass runway east of campus. Our former Culver Ruggers are playing all over the world on college, men's, women's, and military teams. If you require additional information please contact Head Coach Darrell Knowlton.
