Clark County Chiefs RFC
Clark County Chiefs Rugby Football Club is a men’s social rugby club located in Vancouver Washington that was established in 2015. They play in the Pacific Northwest Rugby Football Union (PNRFU) Division III.
The Clark County Chiefs started as a combination of young players who grew up playing with the Clark County Warriors RFC in high school and former Vancouver Sharks RFC men’s players who were seeking a place to play men’s rugby. What started as getting together playing touch rugby on Saturday’s grew into the desire to start a men’s team again in Vancouver.
Clark County Chiefs Rugby Football Club was founded in August of 2015 and played it’s probationary season in PNRFU Division III for the 2015/2016 season. They fared well winning a majority of their games. A very successful season for a new team.
The Chiefs completed their first league season as a full member of PNRFU Division III and finished 4-3 on the year for the 2016/2017 season. They are filling the schedule until next season with friendlies and summer sevens tournaments.
The Chiefs completed started their 2nd season as a full member of PNRFU Division III and 3rd season as a team in the 2017/2018 season. It was a season full of growing pains and learning experiences but they’re heading into next season with good numbers and a strong base of good young players who are looking to tear through the league for the upcoming season.
The Chiefs have a high school affiliate team called the Clark County Warriors. The Warriors are part of Rugby Oregon and play in the High School Boys Club Division. The Warriors have been around for several years and are former state champions! They draw players from all the Vancouver high schools besides Prairie, Union and Battle Ground who have their own teams. If you are a high schooler and are interested in playing high school rugby please get in contact with us.
The Chiefs are currently recruiting players so they have enough players to add a B Side and possibly women’s side (need to build interest from scratch).
