Join the Grizzlies


Become a Member of the Nashville Grizzlies

We are an inclusive organization devoted to teaching and enjoying the sport of rugby. Whether you are interested in playing rugby or just being a supporter and part of the team, the Nashville Grizzlies RFC would like to invite you to become a member.

While everyone who joins is a full member, there are two types of membership: Players and Auxiliary.  All members are encouraged to participate in club educational and community service projects.


Experienced and non-experienced players are welcome.

Would you like to check out a practice? Great! We practice on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7-9pm and Saturday mornings 10-12pm. Come out in athletic clothes and bring cleats, a mouth guard, and a water bottle if you have them - you don't have to for your first practice. We will introduce you to the sport at your own pace.

When you decide to join the team as a player, complete the forms below, pay your dues, and your set to play in your first rugby match!

  • Bring us a copy of your driver's license and insurance card or other proof of medical insurance.
  • Complete our Team Membership Form and the USA Rugby Waiver
  • Each player must register online with USA Rugby and pay the yearly registration fee of $70.00.  This is a USA Rugby requirement for all players, and only registered players may play in scheduled matches.  We encourage each player to register with USA Rugby as soon as possible, but we do not require registration until a player’s fourth practice or his first match, whichever occurs first.  Registration for 2012-2013 will begin on August 15, 2013, and will be valid through August 31, 2014. Register with USA Rugby ($70)
  • Yearly club dues, covering both the fall and spring seasons, are $125.00, and dues for 2013-2014 are due by September 15, 2013, the date of our first match.  You can pay online. The player dues help cover the costs of running the club, including the expenses incurred in playing both home and away matches.  Please know that no one will be denied membership or participation based on an inability to pay club dues.  If you would like to arrange a confidential payment arrangement, you may contact our Treasurer, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. , or our President, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  These also get you perks like admission to our third-halfs.


The Auxiliary membership is for those who want to be a part of the team but not interested in playing. Hopefully, you will learn more about the sport and build an appreciation. There will be plenty of opportunities to help out while having a great time.

Auxiliary benefits include:

  • Attend practices
  • Free entry to home third-half celebrations
  • Invitations to team parties/functions
  • No cover at our sponsor Play Dance Bar on Grizzlies Nights

Show your support by becoming an auxiliary member.


Thank you...
