Keep On Ruckin'

Buffalo, NY - If you’re one of the 500-plus alumni who played rugby, the Canisius College Rugby Alumni Association (CCRAA) wants to hear from you. The newly formed chapter is looking to build its network and knowledge-source to assist the club sport with structure and strategy, so it can continue to grow, develop and be competitive at Canisius. 

Established in 2017 by a small group of rugby alumni, the mission of the CCRAA is three-fold, explains founding member Timothy M. Moran ’96.

“We want to help the college attract well-rounded students and talented athletes emerging from high school-level rugby,” he says.  “We’re also here to provide supplemental funding for the club so it remains competitive at the local, regional and national levels, and to further engage alumni, family and friends in support of the rugby team.”

Canisius rugby has a history of success and the CCRAA is calling on its alumni to join the team.  Simply visit to connect with former players and update your contact information.
