Seattle Quake RFC

The Seattle Quake Rugby Football Club is the Northwest’s first primarily gay men’s rugby team. We are dedicated to promoting the game of Rugby to those who may not have exposure to it, and developing rugby players regardless of prior rugby or athletic experience of all ages, races and sexual orientations.The Quake has two sides with regular matches, a competitive Green side that competes in Division III of the Pacific Northwest Rugby Football Union, and a Gold side for player development that plays friendly matches. We play a full schedule fall and spring, August-November and February-May. We also play friendly matches in spring and fall, as well as compete in tournaments.

Our Mission
