Update: 2018 match schedule.

The Northwest Side Narwahls are a youth rugby club serving the northwest side of Chicago and nearby suburbs. The Narwahls are members of Rugby Illinois, the state-based rugby organization governing middle school rugby in the state of Illinois, and USA Rugby

The Narwahls field two middle teams: one in the U12 division (5th and 6th graders) and one in the U14 division (7th and 8th graders). Middle school games are typically played on Sundays as part of a festival format, where all of the middle school rugby clubs in the Chicagoland region descend on a single park and play throughout the day. The rugby 7s season goes from early June to mid-July.

The Narwhals practice at Brooks Park or Taft High School, depending on the time of year. You can check out our practice schedule.
