S.R.E.R.F.C. was founded in 1995 and is the only Men´s
club in Pennsylvania who train and play in center city Philadelphia. The
club has accomplished a lot going into its 11th 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.
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.
