High School Girls

Traverse Bay Blues High School Girls are now in their ninth year of playing and are top contenders in our league.  We are three-time defending State Champions (2010, 2011, & 2012) and look forward to bringing home the title again this year.

Blues Rugby allows many high school girls to play a team sport that gives them confidence in life; it teaches them teamwork, discipline, and respect.  Many of the players go on to play in college and on a women’s team after graduating.  Several of our players have also been selected to play at higher levels of rugby, such as Michigan Select Side, Midwest Select Side, and even for our National Team, the United States Eagles.  Rugby will give them the self confidence and assertiveness that will be necessary after leaving high school.

Men's Team

The Traverse Bay Blues Senior Mens side competes in the Northern Conference of the Midwest Division 3 Union. Consistently the team to beat in the past decade, we have been very successful advancing in the playoffs 6 times! We field two sides and roster 25-30 every year, so join us for fun, friends and camaraderie.

The Blues success is attributed to timing, dedication, camaraderie and love for the sport.
