By Ian Young 09/28/2018, 10:15am CDT

The 2018-2019 schedule has been finalized. We'll get the season underway with a friendly in West Houston, and then of course our annual Lone Survivor Tournament. Once again this season, we're not required to travel outside the Houston Metro area. In all we'll have 10 cup matches (5 Home, 5 Away), with one Sunday match to help alleviate referee availability.

Summer 7's Underway

By Bay Area Rugby 06/26/2018, 8:45pm CDT

As the summer heat descends on Houston, summer 7's starts

Summer is upon us and that means it's time for 7's. BARC has transition to summer 7's for the rest of summer. Trainings will be every Tuesday and Thursday at our practice pitch on the campus of UHCL by the Delta Building. This is a great time for those new to the sport to come out learn a few basics and meet the team. This is true for both the Men's and Women's team.

The club plans to enter some sides into 7's tournaments around in the area. 7's practices will be led by Don Rabun and Leo Belval. Lauren Patterson will continue to coach the women's side.

As always any experience level is welcome.

BARC Rugby Partners with Ruck Science

Bay Area is excited to announce a new partnership with Ruck Science

Bay Area Rugby Club Announces Official Nutrition Supplier for 2018

The Bay Area Rugby Club has a couple of exciting match ups against  Kingwood and Galveston in March and close out the season against HURT in April.  We’d love to see all of our fans and supporters out to cheer on BARC! In other exciting news, this week, we’re excited to announce that the Bay Area Rugby Club has secured an official nutrition supplier for 2018 and beyond. The club’s latest corporate partner is the Texas-based sports nutrition company, Ruck Science.

About Ruck Science

Ruck Science was created by rugby players who were fed up with the lack of specialized nutrition focused on rugby players.  Gone are the days of using nutritional supplements for body builders or long distance runners. Ruck Science has a large line of products like whey protein geared towards recovery that works ideally when paired with their nitric oxide booster as part of their recovery stack. Their full product line is available at ruckscience.com.

Ruck Science Stacks

The Ruck Science products work hand in hand with each other to produce well rounded nutrition for rugby players. Their Stacks were created to help you reach all of your rugby-focused goals.  Every Ruck Science stack is organized around a unique training, performance or recovery objective. When used correctly, they may supercharge your rugby career.

 

WADA Compliance

Ruck Science products have zero ingredients that are on the World Anti-Doping Agency banned substances list which makes them 100% W.A.D.A compliant. If you’d like to do some research yourself, you can use the W.A.D.A. iPhone app to confirm this claim.  WADA Compliance is important because it means you can use any of their products at any time during the season and not fail a drug screen.

 

Fundraising Efforts

If you’ve ever been involved with an organized sport or club, you’ve likely had to fundraise.  Asking people to buy products or sponsor teams for events is time consuming and often frustrating.  One of the awesome things with our partnership with Ruck Science is that there is virtually no work involved!  All it takes to earn a percentage back is one of our players or supporters to make purchases on ruckscience.com and enter the coupon code ‘BAYAREARUGBY’.  Once the purchase is complete, they’ll donate 10% of the value of your order to the club. It’s just that easy!

Blog and Training Programs

Not only is Ruck Science in the business of rugby nutrition, they are all about training and education.  Their website is full of great information to help in all things training, game play and more. Popular blog posts include 10 stupid simple recovery tips for rugby and Lower-body conditioning for rugby – get a sled. All of their Rugby Training and Diet Programs are FREE and available for personal and team application.
