Mount Pleasant High School is located in Providence and is an alternate practice location when outdoor accomodations in or around Boston aren't available The Ironsides may also schedule a Bootcamp South if there is enough interest from potential players who do not live in the Boston metro area later in 2012. The address is 434 Mount Pleasant Ave, Providence, RI 02908. Click HERE to get directions. For information on our current practice location and schedule, please visit Winter Practice Schedule.
If you'd like to participate in a practice, please bring suitable outdoor workout gear - sturdy shorts or sweatpants and a shirt you don't mind getting dirty, and cleats if you have them. If you decide to join the team (and we think that you will!), you'll need a full rugby kit... but don't worry about that yet.
Public transportation is difficult in Providence, but the MBTA commuter rail from South Station to Providence Station will get you close if you have a ride set up from there. The pitch is about two miles away.
