Schuylkill River Exiles Rugby Football Club was founded in 1995 and is the only Division 1 men's club in Pennsylvania who train and play in center city Philadelphia. The club has accomplished a lot going into its 17th year of existence, winning Division III outright in the fall divisional 1999 season and advancing to the final 8 in the nation in the spring Division III playoffs.Work out when and for how long to visit Schuylkill River Trail and other Philadelphia attractions using our handy Philadelphia road trip planner.
In the fall of 2000, our first season in Division II, we became one of the first teams ever to go from Division III to Division I in two years by winning Division II outright. In the spring of 2001, we once again made the National play-offs by competing in the Division II Sweet 16.
In 2001, we competed in the Division I Championship Division shocking many by finishing in second place in our first season in Division I.
In the spring of 2002, Schuylkill played mostly Division I clubs and competed strongly proving that we were for real and here to stay as a club in Division I. Unfortunately, a one point loss in the MARFU play-offs stopped us from getting to Nationals three years in a row in three different divisions.
Fall 2002 we began our competition in an even harder Division I comprised of MARFU Superleague and Division I teams only. Since that point we have competed among the highest levels of domestic rugby, and our sights on the highest honors in the land.
The club is young, hungry and willing to practice and play hard to become the best Division I club in MARFU, the highest level of divisional rugby in the U.S.A.
Schuylkill River Trail reviews
Take a long walk along the working river and discover the old industrial waterfront. Not especially pretty but certainly historic and a very good hike. more »
This is a beautiful paved well-maintained path made with out-door activities in mind. Always filled with the more serious bike riders who love the longer uninterrupted trails. more »
