The Leprechauns were formed through the combination of two of the oldest teams in the Green Bay area.  The Bad Boys were one of three of the first teams in the NEW Conference in 1995.  Bay Port was founded in 1996.  In the pictures above from that era, you can find 3 of our current coaches.


Green Bay Leprechauns are part of the Green Bay Rugby Football Club, Inc. which is a 501c3 organization.    We play in the NE Wisconsin Youth Rugby league. 

For younger players,  consider playing in Green Bay Youth Rugby, which is a non-contact coed program for kids in 3rd - 8th grade and a middle school tackle program for boys and girls in 6th-8th grade.
