The CYRFC was started in the Fall of 2011 by a group of rugby enthusiasts who wished to bring the game of Rugby to the young people of Culpeper and the surrounding counties. By the Spring of 2012 there were over fifty registered players competing as U-13, U-15 and High School teams in the Rugby Virginia Spring tackle session.
Although the first season went without a win there were many winning moments. The players clearly took to the game as well as its spirit and sporting traditions. There was no doubt that rugby was going to thrive in Culpeper.
