About Chuckanut Bay

The Chuckanut Bay Rugby Club was founded in 1973 after a group of recent Western Washington University graduates realized that they couldn't play as Western students. They formed the club and established the Geoducks as the team mascot because of it’s history as the most dangerous bi-valve in the Pacific Northwest. The founders picked Columbia Blue (traditional WWU color) and orange (traditional hue of a Chuckanut Bay sunset) as the team colors.

In 2003 the club incorporated as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and focused on growing rugby for kids in addition to the adult teams.

Today, the club offers rugby for both boys and girls of all abilities in grades K-3 flag rugby and grades 4-12 contact rugby in addition to our women and men's teams.

The mission is to develop the sport of rugby across all levels, providing opportunities for recreation and competitive rugby. Chuckanut Bay is committed to providing a positive atmosphere where athletes, families, and fans can come and enjoy the spirit of competition, camaraderie, and sportsmanship.
