Who is MidState Rugby?

Cheshire Rugby was founded in 2005 and began to outgrow the Greater Cheshire Region after a decade by expanding our reach into communities defined by a much larger geographical area. Our history, mascot, and mission have not changed and we will continue to provide the same programing and culture established by Cheshire Rugby.

MidState Rugby Club currently offers rugby programming for youth and high school that grows the rugby player from our flag program into the youth tackle teams, and eventually our competitive boys and girls high school programs. Many of our high school level players continue to play college rugby and beyond. 

Where is MidState Rugby?

We are just minutes off 691. 

MidState Rugby Club's home field and game facility is at Mountain Mist Day Camp, 522 High Hill Rd, Meriden, CT.  We will practice at other locations in Cheshire and surrounding towns in the beginning of the season based upon field conditions and weather in early March.
