The Army Rugby Football Club was founded in 1961 and for over 40 years the Army Black Knights have been a leader in USA Collegiate Rugby. The Army Ruggers are West Point’s most winning team.

In 1980 the USA Rugby Collegiate Championship playoff system was established. Since then, the Army Rugby team has qualified for every Sweet 16 Tournament and has also reached more than ten Final Fours. The Army Rugby team has finished second in the nation 3 times.

All Cadet classes play and the team currently has over 60 members drawn from the United States Corps of Cadets fielding four rugby sides.

The Division-1 A and B sides battle for dominance in the Division 1-A Eastern division while the C and D sides typically challenge local clubs every year.
