competition & practices

Participants come from all over the Austin-metro area, so we try to limit commute days and times.  Generally we have a combined practice and game every Saturday morning during the season at the Austin Huns Rugby Field. Games are typically inter-squad games.  As rugby gains in popularity and more teams are coming into existence, we sometimes host other teams or travel to other areas to gain experience.  Travel is usually limited to the Central Texas Area. Typical Schedule:

  • Saturdays 9am-10:30am - Practice (varies based on age group)
  • Saturdays 10:30am-11:30am - Game
  • Saturdays 11:30am-12pm - After game feed and social for players and parents.
