End of an era…

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that both Cody & I will be leaving DC soon and are passing on the DC Touch baton. I will be heading home to my native Ireland, & Cody on his adventures to Central Asia.

The last >2.5 years of organizing things (and +1 more of just playing) have been the best part of my DC experience. I’ve met the most amazing people and I’ll miss you guys (& touch) so much!

I’ll be announcing the new board members shortly. These fabulous guys are stepping up to the plate & deserve individual shout outs, stay tuned!

Lots of love (& tears),


Shirts have been ordered!

Hi everyone,

For those of you who filled out the order form – the shirts are underway!

I have ordered the following:

  • Dark grey for women (tank style like last time)
  • Black tanks for the men who indicated sleeveless/no preference (they didn’t have grey in this style unfortunately, my bad!)
  • Dark grey t-shirts for men that wanted them (I know I said I wouldn’t do both but turns out they could accommodate this without driving up the cost, yay!)

They came to $17.50 each. I will be making Venmo requests (etc.) very soon & contact you to make arrangements on how to get your shirts once they arrive. The ETA is ~2-3 weeks.


Want a DC Touch Rugby shirt?

Hi crew!

There have been many requests in the past year for a new DC Touch Rugby shirt order.

Well you’re in luck!

Fill in this form by Wednesday 29th July if you want a shirt: click me!

Please consider the form your commitment to buying a shirt – it is not a ‘general interest’ survey. I will include all shirts requested in my order and pay the whole cost up front out of pocket so I’ll rely on you paying me back afterwards. I say this because last time I was left with someone saying they didn’t want theirs long after I’d already paid for them & had to take the loss myself.

Last time they were approximately $17 each but the more we order the cheaper they will be so I’ll update you on the price when I have confirmed numbers. I also haven’t finalized a colour yet but there’s a poll within the link. Otherwise the design will be the same as the previous order, as seen modeled by Mr. January and some random redhead chick below.

Whether you’re adding to your collection or are a first time buyer – order your DC Touch Rugby shirt today!!!

(and there was much rejoicing)

DC Touch Rugby COVID update and reopening plan!

Hey team! It’s been a long time since you’ve heard from us so we wanted to get out a quick message to the whole DC Touch Rugby group.

First, I hope you all know we miss playing touch rugby and seeing you all like crazy! I can’t wait for the day when we can all be back to playing like before. Unfortunately, for now that may be a little while yet. Please know that the DC Touch Rugby leadership has been working behind the scenes to get us back to playing and we are currently working on the DC Touch Rugby Revival Plan! This will include phased reopening when appropriate and new safety measures and guidelines for playing.

Stayed tuned for further announcements in the coming weeks and until we all meet again, I hope you are staying safe and healthy.

Wednesday on the Mall

Great turnout last night everyone!

We’re on again for tomorrow, same time, same place as last night.

Also – if you have any interest in being part of a DC Touch team for a tournament in Orlando, FL, Saturday May 16th, let me know below!
