Background Statement
The Florida Gulf Coast Rugby Foundation is the parent charity that has taken over the Sarasota SURGE Rugby Club which was founded in 2010 by a small group of International and American rugby players to fill the need for rugby in our area. We are a competitive D3 Men's Rugby Club representing Manatee & Sarasota Counties. Since our initial training session, we have had a rapid rate of growth in team membership.   In 2014 we started developing a youth program with only 4 players ages 7-14 years old,  now as of 11/2015 we have grown to over 40 in our youth academy.  As for the club in general we are always recruiting new players! No experience is necessary to join. We have a full coaching staff that can teach anyone the game. We welcome new and veteran players alike, at all times throughout the season. Rugby is not a mainstream American sport, but is in fact the second most played sport in the world next to soccer. It is growing now very fast in the United States! It is the most physical, intense team sport around! Sarasota SURGE Rugby Club senior team is entering its Fifth season and quickly becoming one of the most competitive Division 3 teams in the state. Every year we play with the hopes of reaching the state championship and beyond.
