We are proud to be able to host rugby matches on one of the nicest rugby pitches in central Illinois. Our 100m x 60m pitch, with regulation rugby posts, is on the former IVC High School football field behind what is now the Chillicothe Elementary Center and Jr. High. We appreciate the continuing support of IVC District 321 in allowing us to use the field and ask all visitors to treat the property with respect.
The pitch is located behind Chillicothe Elementary Center at 914 W Truitt Ave, Chillicothe. Spectator parking is at 1199 N Cutright St, on the east side of the pitch.
High School Matches
For high school rugby matches, we ask spectators to stay on the east side of the pitch behind the ropes, according to USA Rugby policy. Parents of small children can use the playground on the west side, but must stay on or outside the track.
Middle School Rugby Festivals
When we have the privilege of hosting Rugby Illinois middle school rugby festivals, the Seniors (U14) play on the main pitch, while the Juniors (U12) and Rookie Rugby (U10) matches are on the side field. USA Rugby mandated technical zones are observed on all pitches.
