WELCOME TO KENMORE RUGBY
ABOUT KENMORE RUGBY
Kenmore Rugby began in 2004 as the Kenmore West Rugby Club, fielding both boys and girls rugby teams. Along with City Honors, they were the first local high school rugby programs in WNY. They were joined in 2005 by Kenmore East who also established boys and girls rugby. The two schools were as fierce of rivals in rugby as they were in all other sports.
In 2011, the Kenmore Youth Rugby Association was formed offering non-contact flag rugby for boys and girls originally in grades 3-8, and eventually expanding to include grades K-8. Since 2011, many players have gone on to play for the Kenmore high school teams.
In 2012, the boys teams at East and West merged creating the Kenmore Boys Rugby Club. Kenmore Girls Rugby was also formed that year as the girls teams at East and West also joined forces.
In 2020, the girls team folded due to declining numbers and the pandemic. The boys team continued on, but also lost significant numbers as a result of a lost season. The youth flag program also did not play at all in 2020.
At the beginning of 2021, interested stakeholders decided that it was time to go back to the future and grow the game by once again combining boys and girls rugby under a single club, but this time also adding the youth flag program.
The new Kenmore Rugby Club is the result of that effort.
