Spring Practice Returns
The 2022 Rio Grande Rugby Union spring season is upon us (more on that below!) and that means it's practice time! NM Brujos practice is every Tuesday and Thursday at 6 PM at Johnson Field.
New Players are always welcome!
All practices will follow strict covid safe and social distancing guidelines, and individuals can opt out of any drill or exercise as they see fit. Please bring cleats, water and a mask, and please fill out the health check form on the webpage: https://www.brujosrugby.com/brujos-player-health-check before every practice! This is important as the safer and more transparent we are as a team, the sooner we get to things going back to normal or something resembling normal. We are all in this together, so let's return to rugby safe and smart.
