GRAND RAPIDS RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB
No experience is needed to join. We host a Division 3 and a Division 4 side. This means that there is plenty of opportunity for everyone to play on game day, regardless of skill, age, or athleticism. With two sides, we still practice as one unit; this allows for new comers to gain valuable insight and experience from more seasoned players.

Established In 1978
The history of the Grand Rapids Gazelles RFC dates back to the spring of 1978. Ed Teliczan was playing with the Kalamazoo Harlequins and decided to start his own team in Grand Rapids. Success quickly followed for the club, and we have since acquired several national championships in both 15’s and 7’s play. The Gazelles compete in club competition regulated by USA Rugby. Currently we have a Men’s Division III. The Men’s Division III side are nationally ranked, and compete for National Titles each year.
