Division 2

The Brandywine Rugby Football Club was formed by West Chester University graduates who wanted to play rugby while still continuing their careers. The club’s founding father, Scott Johnson, grabbed some mates and moved around from the elementary schools and parks to play their favorite sport.

The BRFC has been in the National Elite 8 in 2009, 2010, and 2011, and came in second in the nation in 2008. In 2001, the team traveled to Scotland as part of their tour — a far cry from the days the club didn't have their own field or enough players for a game.

The Doylestown Rugby Football Club (Men's Division) was formed in December of 1974 by Jo Stefano, Tony Stefano, Matt Tyksinski, Gary Mount, and John Tomlinson (JT). Through the Doylestown Maennerchor Society, they gained access and built a rugby pitch on Cold Spring Creamery Road, Buckingham Township. In January of 1984, John Tomlinson was again instrumental in the formation of the Doylestown Junior Rugby Football Club (High School Boys).

The Lehigh Valley Rugby Football Club is a non-profit corporation. Founded in 1998, the Club represents men's and women's rugby in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. The Club also takes an oversight role for the High School and Youth teams. The men's team is a Full Member of the EPRU.

The foundation for North Penn RFC was formed in 1988 as a high school program for UK Ex-pats whose children did not have a team to play for in the Lansdale/Hatfield, PA area.

Old Gaelic RFC was formed in the winter of 1975 and became a Full Member of the EPRU in February 1987. The club participated in the Division 3 National Club Championship Series in 2010 and 2011.

The Roses Rugby Football Club, (Roses RFC), is a rugby union team based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania that was founded in 2000. The club competes in, and is governed by, the Eastern Pennsylvania Rugby Union and USA Rugby.

Even though the Roses RFC plays in the city of Lancaster, the team formally extends its player membership and marketing to the nearby city of York. The team plays most of its home matches at Centerville Middle School in Lancaster, and at the York College of Pennsylvania.

This is the Division 3 side of the Schuylkill River Exiles Division 1 team. Schuylkill River D3 began play in the fall of 2015. 

South Jersey RFC is a Division II member of the Eastern Pennsylvania Rugby Union. Located in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, just a ten-minute drive from Philadelphia, and 40 minutes to the Jersey Shore, the team is always looking for new players to join the ranks.

Founded in the fall of 1969, the South Jersey Devils try to create a local rugby club that forges a brotherhood based on discipline and hard work. Today, the team helps create a modern brand of rugby in which players of many levels can evolve.

Wilmington competes in the Mid-Atlantic Conference. After a very successful 2015 season, Wilmington will move from Division 2 to Division 1 in the Fall of 2016.
