Founded in 2006, Alpharetta Phoenix Rugby is Georgia's premier youth rugby club. Offering teams in the U14 (Middle School), U16 (JV) and U19 (Varsity) age groups, Phoenix plays two rugby seasons per year: Rugby 7's in the Fall, and Rugby 15's in the Spring.
Phoenix practice and play at:
Alpharetta North Park, Field #1,
13450 Cogburn Road, Alpharetta North Park
As always, our primary goal is to produce young men of integrity, character and perseverance through the game of rugby. However, we are also a competitive team, and have high expectations for our players both on and off the field and have set the following goals for the coming year:
1. To continue to be Georgias premiership championship youth team;
2. Grow our membership base (but primarily in the Middle School category) since this is the lifeblood of our team!
3. To earn an invitation to the High School National Championships for a fifth time!
Phoenix welcomes everyone - no experience or knowledge of rugby is necessary! - since we believe that the game has something for everyone, and that anyone can play the game. All that is needed is a desire to improve, a spirit of teamwork, and a positive attitude.
We are delighted that we have a full slate of HS boys and girls teams from around the Southeast joining us for the 2019 Pilgrim Classic Rugby 7's Tournament!
The tournament kicks off at 10:00 am on Saturday, November 23, at Alpharetta North Park, 13450 Cogburn Road, Alpharetta Georgia.
We are honored to have the following clubs join us this year:
Girls' Teams: East Cobb Amazons (GA), Charlotte Tigers A & B (NC), Brunswick (GA), Riverdale (TN), South Meck Savages (NC), Tribe Rugby (TN), and Boynton Beach (FL).
Boys' Teams: Phoenix A & B (GA), Brunswick (GA), Morgan County (GA), Charlotte Tigers A & B (NC), SERA (NC), and Tribe (TN).
Phoenix Sevens Open 2019 Season
On October 19, the Phoenix Varsity side travelled to Charlotte to compete in the 2nd. round of the Carolinas Rugby Sevens competition. A bumper 28 sides from NC, SC and GA participated in what was billed as the largest Sevens tournament ever held in the Carolinas...
Please arrive at Alpharetta North Park around 8:30 so we can start practice no later than 9:00.
Honesty, fair play, and a commitment to doing what is right.
A passion for life, for the game, and for our community.
Life, like rugby, is a team effort - and better done together than alone.
Playing well requires disciplined commitment to both the laws, values and spirit of the game.
For teammates, officials, coaches, the opposition, and the laws and spirit of the game.

Phoenix Rugby is fortunate to have very generous sponsors who make it possible for us to do everything we do as a Club. They have all been exceedingly generous over the years, and we are deeply thankful to them.
Phoenix Rugby always welcomes the opportunity to bring new sponsors into the rugby family. In fact, sponsors are a kind of 'royalty' around the Club since without them, it would be very difficult for us to operate.
Phoenix Rugby operates under the Georgia Youth Rugby Association Inc, a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization. As a result, sponsorship funds are considered tax deductible contributions.
