Something that rugby players have been privy to is the camaraderie amongst the lads. The Bootleggers of Albany are no different! Ruck Science is delighted to announce that we have partnered with the Albany Bootleggers for the 2016-17 season and potentially onward!

Who are the Albany Bootleggers?

The Bootleggers are a Division 3 social club located in the beautiful Capital District of New York. While Albany considers itself a social club, they compete with some of the best Division 3 clubs the country has to offer. They are a perfect example of the phrase, “Work hard, play harder!” The Bootleggers host multiple events throughout the year that would entice anyone to have a pint or two with them. Their most recent event, 2nd Annual Bootlegger's Christmas in July is a pub crawl they hosted with the proceeds going towards the Lt. Colonel Kevin M. Shea Memorial Scholarship.

The Bootleggers currently train at Lincoln Park, Wednesdays beginning at 6:30pm. Rugby is a game for all shapes and sizes so head over there check out the Albany Bootleggers and enjoy the camaraderie!

Why the partnership?

Our mission statement at Ruck Science is to, “Sponsor every rugby club on the planet!” The Albany Bootleggers is a team that wishes to utilize our sponsorship program while gaining an athletic advantage over the opposition. Up to 20% of every purchase made on ruckscience.com using the Rugby Club field “Albany Bootleggers” will be donated back to the club on a monthly basis.

Supporting the Bootleggers

There are two ways to do this. #1 is to make sure that when you buy something from the Ruck Science online store, you remember to tell us that you want your donation to go to the Albany Bootleggers.
