The Seattle Quake Rugby Football Club is a nonprofit corporation and a gay organization that actively seeks out traditionally under-represented members in our community and encourages them to explore the sport of Rugby Union in a non-threatening and empowering environment.  As such The Seattle Quake maintains a developmental rugby program that fosters a love for the sport of rugby regardless of athletic ability.  

Through positive competitive engagement in our surrounding communities, Quake hopes to directly challenge stereotypes and bigotry in what has historically been the uncommon ground of rugby. Further, Quake actively participates in solidarity with other organizations that share common goals of mutual understanding and respect for all members of the community.

The Seattle Quake Rugby Football Club is the Northwest’s first primarily gay men’s rugby team that is committed to bringing one of the world’s most popular games to new players who may not otherwise have considered playing.
