A week at the pitch with Coast Guard Rugby

By sheer number of personnel, the Coast Guard is diminutive compared to the other U.S. Armed Forces; however, we maintain a reputation of never backing down and always being able to punch above our weight class. Nowhere was this more evident than when Coast Guard Rugby came together this summer for the Armed Forces Rugby Tournament.

USCG Rugby Team has heart, on and off the pitch

The Coast Guard Rugby Team recently competed in the 5th Annual Armed Forces Rugby Tournament. Not only did they play their hearts out, but they also volunteered at the Children’s Hospital Colorado. The team proudly wore the image of Joshua James on their jerseys and honorably represented his spirit. Read the full post to learn more about the Rugby Team and how to get involved.

Representing the Coast Guard with a different type of uniform

Sometimes, the men and women that represent the U.S. Coast Guard wear a different type of uniform: a rugby jersey. Each year, the Coast Guard rugby team participates in the Armed Forces Rugby Tournament, a smaller tournament within the Serevi Rugbytown Sevens tournament. At the tournament, the team competes against rugby teams from all other branches of the armed forces.
