Practice Moved Back to Broad Ripple Park

Hey Everyone,
A good start to the fall season tonight. We were missing a few key players, but overall we had a good collection of new and returning players which made for an excellent first practice. At the end of practice we did decide to move practice back up to Broad Ripple Park for the immediate future. Arsenal Park is right by the State Fair Grounds and can be a little tricky to get to right now. We will be back at Broad Ripple Park on Thursday and until further notice.
See everyone Thursday at Broad Ripple Park

Impalas Provide an Exciting Halftime Show for Indy Eleven

Thank you to the Indy Eleven Professional Soccer team for allowing us to show off rugby during halftime this past weekend. Over 10,000 fans got an exposure to live Indianapolis Impalas rugby. Judging by the cheers during play and the response from social media, we made some new fans in the process.
