The Kansas City Jazz Rugby Club was established in the fall of 1993 and became an official USA Rugby team in the fall of 1994. Part of the Heart of America Union and the West Territory, the KC Jazz was undefeated in the territory and union from 1995 until 2008! The team has been nationally ranked amongst Women’s Club teams in the U.S. for 8 of the last 12 years.
In addition to its athletic success, the KC Jazz fosters a community of diversity, respect, and discipline. Among many things, the team prides itself on its openness and ability to bring people differing backgrounds and experiences together to achieve common goals.
The KC Jazz is presently comprised of 25-30 women ages 18-35. With skill levels ranging from beginner to nationally recognized, the Jazz competes against Division 2 Club level teams in the Heart of America Territory. Not only does the Jazz play during the fall season, but the team has a summer 7s program, as well!
Last season, the KC Jazz finished second at Westerns – a great showing for a team that has recently been rebuilding.
