About Grand Rapids Gazelles Football Club
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 support teams at Men’s Division III and a Women’s Division II side. The Men’s Division III and Women’s Division II side are nationally ranked, and compete for National Titles each year.
The Grand Rapids Gazelles is more than just a competitive rugby club. We have established and work hard to maintain our rich culture. We have welcomed local talent as well as players from countries around the world. The team is comprised of players of varying ages, skill levels, and experiences; we truly welcome all who wish to share in the comradery and competitive nature of our club.
