In an effort to grow our team and spread the word of our mission, we are always recruiting and accepting new members (auxiliary and active). You may see us out and about in Columbus, at a practice, or at one of our eventful fundraisers throughout the year.
If you've ever considered joining rugby, come join us for a practice, meet us out for a drink (or shot) and ask as many questions as you want! Or if you prefer, reach out on social media, we respond fairly quickly.
Auxiliary members are non-playing members of the team. They pay dues, can practice with the team, travel with the team, and participate in all social events with the team including third halfs.
Our club is actively seeking sponsors to support our team as we continue to excel on and off the field.
As a rugby club deeply rooted in our community, we take immense pride in fostering the growth and development of our players, while promoting the values of teamwork, integrity, and sportsmanship. By partnering with us as a sponsor, you have an incredible opportunity to make a lasting impact and be part of our journey to success.
We invite you to join us in our pursuit of rugby greatness and community impact. By sponsoring the Kodiaks, you can showcase your brand to a passionate audience, actively engage with our community, and contribute to the growth and success of our club.
