Tackle Sevens Thursday Night Under The Lights
Every Thursday evening from 6-10 (weather permitting), we will be playing tackle sevens under the lights at Seminary Field. If you are a Viper, come on out. If you are a team, wanting a match with some Vipers, come on out. If you are a player between the ages of 11 and 18 and want to pick up a game, you can come on out too. BUT!! You must bring proof that you are CIPP'ed, a hard copy of our Seven's form (click on the top right) and $5 to cover the cost of the pizza and drinks. Come on out and have some fun.
Directions to Seminary Field are located to the left. Click on directions.

New to Vipers Rugby? Here's a little about us.
This program was started 18 years ago to introduce kids to rugby in the Northern Baltimore County area. We were strictly a touch program for many years. We were a member, and still are, in the PYRUL (Potomic Youth Rugby Union League) with other teams in the Baltimore Metro area.
As we continued to grow, we decided that adding tackle would be a natural progression for our program. Today we have over 150 participants in our program.
We have co-ed touch teams for boys and girls in the U-9, U-11, and U-13 age groups.
We offer tackle programs for boys U-13, U-15 and U-19 and girls U-19.
The biggest thing thing to us, though, is we are a family. Many of the players who have aged out have kept in touch. Many of the tackle players play for different teams in the high school season, but they stay friendly with their fellow Vipers. The most important lesson a Viper will learn is rugby is not a game but an attitude, and rugby players are big in heart and spirit.
