Due to the evolving situation around COVID-19, Phoenix Rugby have decided to cancel all activities with immediate effect. We will update you as-and-when advice indicates that activities can be resumed.
USA Rugby issued a statement earlier today advising against intra-state travel or any events involving more than 200 people.
The MSIRL then issued the following statement:
“Due to COVID-19 concerts and new guidance from the NC governor and other officials from various organisations all rugby practices, matches and activities are cancelled effective immediately. We will closely monitor the situation and will communicate when and how rugby will start back up when it is safe and appropriate.”
This is unfortunate, but our primary interest is the health and well-being of the players, parents, coaches and supporters.
We look forward to resuming activities when we can – until then, please ensure you keep exercising and in-shape.

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
Practices are from 7:00 pm -9:00 pm every Tuesday & Thursday
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.
Alpharetta Phoenix Rugby has a new practice time for all practices in Spring, 2020. The days remain the same (Tuesday and Thursday) at Alpharetta North Park Lower Field (13450 Cogburn Road), but the times have changed to be more convenient for a school night!
The new practice times are:
Tuesday, 7:00 - 9:00
Thursday, 7:00 - 9:00
We think this a great change, and hope that it will also encourage some more of the younger players to bring their mates down at a more reasonable hour.
See you at practice from 7pm!

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 will have a busy Spring fifteens schedule this year, with loads of rugby.

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.
