About the Team

Nighthawks Rugby is the newest sport at Northern Virginia Community College and the only Women’s, 2-Year Rugby Program of its kind. Established in August of 2019 by a few students who had participated in and completed the Rugby Student Leadership Program at the Loudoun Campus, these few students caught the rugby bug and it was full steam ahead from there.

Sportsmanship. Teamwork. Inclusion. These are the values that the club was founded on and that we work every day to put into practice. Nighthawks Rugby is open to any female student enrolled at NOVA Regardless of experience. We pride ourselves on being incredibly beginner friendly while also setting high team standards during practices and games.

Practices are held at the Loudoun Campus Soccer Fields in Sterling, VA every Monday and Wednesday from 4-6pm. If you are interested in trying a new sport, getting involved with an incredible group of strong women or just want a new way to stay active we are the team for you!
