HURT Training begins Wednesday, October 11th at The Regis School of the Sacred Heart at 7:30pm. Training will be every Monday/Wednesday at 7:30pm until further notice. Come and join HURT for the 2017-18 season as we battle to defend the South Division championship in the RRRC D2.
*UPDATE: As of 2018, training has been moved Kerr Park every Tuesday and Thursday.
The Houston United Rugby Team fields two sides: HURT (D2) & the Henchmen (D3). The 2016-17 season was another great year for the club as HURT (8-0) went undefeated in league-play for the second straight year, and the Henchmen (8-1-1) had another stellar performance in their second season. Both teams advanced to the playoffs but came up short during the RRRC championship weekend. HURT & Henchmen will continue to strive to be a powerhouses in Texas rugby.
HURT is proud to announce the new Director of Rugby, Zachary Hiller.
Mr. Hiller has been a part of the HURT family since its inception in 2012 as a player and officer of the club. Hiller began his rugby career in 2002 at Washington University Rugby where he became club President and interim coach before his move back home to Texas. Hiller was the manager of the Gold-medal winning Maccabi USA Rugby team for the 2017 Maccabiah Games in Israel. Earlier this year, he was inducted to the Ronnie Arrow Jewish Sports Hall of Fame for his achievements in rugby, football and swimming. Hiller also brings his passion for philanthropy as seen in his involvement as a coach for the Blondes vs. Brunettes Houston fundraiser that has raised over a million dollars for Alzheimer’s research. We are privileged and excited to have Zack in this leadership position for HURT.
The Houston United Rugby Team is hosting their annual “first practice” for the 2017-18 season at Fifty Fifty Acorn Golf on Thursday, October 5th from 7-9pm. This meet & greet event is a great opportunity for new and prospective players to come meet other HURT players and learn more about the club.
