The Seattle Quake Rugby Football Club

The Seattle Quake Rugby Football Club is a non-profit corporation and a gay organization that actively seeks out traditionally under-represented members in our community and encourages them to explore the sport of Rugby Union in a non-threatening and empowering environment.  As such, the Seattle Quake maintains a developmental rugby program that fosters a love for the sport of rugby, regardless of athletic ability.  Through positive and competitive engagement in our surrounding communities, we hope to directly challenge stereotypes and bigotry in what has historically been the uncommon ground of rugby.  Further, we actively participate and are in solidarity with other organizations that share our common goals of mutual understanding and respect for all members of the community.

What’s the Quake about?

The Seattle Quake Rugby Football Club is the Northwest’s first primarily gay men’s rugby team. We are committed to bringing one of the world’s most popular games to new players who may not otherwise have considered playing.

The Quake is growing and always welcomes newcomers to the sport, as well as experienced players, coaches, fans and contributors of all ages, races and sexual orientations.

Get Involved

There are many ways to be involved. We are always looking for new players, fans, supporters, and volunteers:
