USC Rugby was founded in 1997 just one year after the opening of the University of the Sunshine Coast (then Sunshine Coast Community College). The USC Rugby Club plays in the Sunshine Coast Rugby Union competition, the local competition to the Sunshine Coast which is apart of the Queensland Country Rugby Union. The 2016, 20th Anniversary will be a special year for all USC rugby fans, players (past and present),all the committed coaches, managers and committee members who will be looking to celebrate our club with success, fun and great memories for years to come.

Today USC Rugby boasts two Senior Grades, Under 19 Colts team and 11 junior sides ranging from U18 to U6s all competing in the Sunshine Coast District Rugby Union Competition (SCDRU). The senior competition traditionally has 5 teams from Fraser Coast in the north to Caloundra in the south.

USC Rugby is fast becoming the club of choice on the Sunshine Coast due to its commitment to nurturing the running game and it's strong club culture. Numerous programs have been put in place to host and nurture the development of individual players and officials, and of course the game of rugby union. USC Rugby has a very innovative philosophy for such a young club, believing that a club should not be segregated into teams but work as one united club. This is evident on and off the field with strong training sessions involving all players regardless of age or skill, and a social calendar that sees University as the envy of the district.

The USC summer rugby academy targets skill development, skill education and fitness for players aged between U11 to U18's. The academy is run by a collection of great coaches and current senior players through the months of November to March. 

Our club encourages our junior representative players with a rebate for all representative fees. Also we encourage our young players to join the Sunshine Coast Refereeing program where the young refs are paid to referee games of younger age groups. The more games refereed the more they earn!


The USC Rugby Club is based at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Sippy Downs Campus. This is a short 15 minute drive to the award winning beaches of Mooloolaba, Maroochydore and Kawana. The Sippy Downs Campus is handy to the Bruce Highway (Australia’s National Highway) which is the direct route to Brisbane (Queensland’s capital) just 80 kilometers away. It is also supported by ever improving public transport to the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane.

From the players...

I like to play rugby because it is physical and fun game. They say it is a game played in heaven and I understand why, its hard on the field but you always respect the other players. It teaches you teamwork and commitment to your teammates. My dad is also the coach and it means I get to spend more time with him and all coaches need help so your dads can get involved too.

I have been playing rugby at USC for six years now. Ever since I have been playing at Uni every season seems to be better: just by making new mates and growing stronger relationships with others. The best moments playing for Uni Rugby would have to be playing on a Friday night under the lights on USC’s main field then following the game having a sausage and drink with your team-mates, I also love when the Seniors come out of there way to watch all the Uni teams play every-week – it just makes all the boys want to win that little bit more. The club overall has a very strong culture and bond between the seniors and juniors; this shows at the Senior Grand final at USC rugby club earlier this year. Having all of us juniors run out the A-grade on to the field in front of 1000’s was an awesome moment for me and all the other juniors running them out. This just reflects the awesome culture between the whole club.

I've been playing rugby since I was 5. It's great for my fitness, and I've made some good friends.
Junior Club Captain 2015
I like playing for University Rugby because of the great spirit the Club gives and I like playing as a team with lots of my friends. My coach has taught how to play my part in our team and how to play rugby at my best.
Under 12's
Playing rugby for the USC Barbarians will be something I remember for the rest of my life. For the past 7 years playing here I have made life long friends, developed new skills, been privileged enough to have some of the best coaches and so many more great experiences. I’ve learnt so many skills, techniques and ways to play the game. USC gives everyone the chance to socialize and meet new people all year round. I could never imagine playing at another club other then USC, it has given so much to me such as life long memories, friends and helped me be the best I can be.
