Thanks for visiting our website and we hope we can inspire you to become a player on one of our 2015 teams whether it be our coed U11, U13 team, our Girls team 14-18, U15 Boys, U17 Boys or U19 Boys.
We welcome anyone who has the desire to find out more about becoming a rugby player. Join the
hundreds of past and present Rainier Highlanders who began with no knowledge of playing rugby
but ended up loving the game. Many of our players have gone on to play in college or on one of
the local adult club teams. Our 2015 season has concluded and will resume in January 2016 but
we are eager to help answer any of your questions so please select the contact us tab in red
at bottom of the page and we are ready to respond.
Our spring 15 aside has concluded and will resume in January 2016, however an ideal opportunity to get an introduction to rugby in the next few months is the Summer 7's.
Our sevens program is open to new players who were not involved during our spring season and are prepared to teach new players the skills and tactics of playing sevens. We don't expect new players to have any knowledge or background in rugby and are very experienced in introducing the game to female and male athletes in a safe and fun manner.

The Rainier Girls and U15 & 19 Boys teams recently all featured in the State Championship
Finals and involved a large number of players playing rugby for the first time. Our U19 team
won the Division 2 championship and our other teams were runners up. Our first ever U13 side
ended the season undefeated and our U17 side were state semi finalists. Our Lady Highlanders
also completed a tour to Vancouver Island Canada during their spring season. We also had
several girls and boys representing the WA All Star Teams in regional multi state tournaments. We also had three players from our girls side invited to participate in a summer USA Rugby National High School Assembly Camp. Two of these players were subsequently invited to be part of the High School All American squad that played two matches with Canada.
During the summer 7s season the Lady Highlanders again were state runners up and our two boys teams were third and fourth in their respective divisions.
These performances were an ideal way to end the 2015 season and create excitement and enthusiasm for the 2016 Spring Season.
The 2016 Season will commence in early January with the highlights of the season below
January - Twice weekly practices usually 6.30pm-8.30pm
February - Pre season matches and jamborees
March - League Matches Commence (once a week)
May - State Championship/Post season playoffs & championships
