The Bremer Bucks are partnering with Ruck Science

The Bucks would like to announce a new partnership which we hope will be very beneficial to our members and supporters alike. This month, we’ve signed up with the sports nutrition company, Ruck Science. The company makes and sells a range of nutritional products designed for rugby players to perform, recover and live better. They’re based down in Austin, TX and they were started by a group of rugby players who were sick of taking supplements that we actually made for body builders. Their online store ruckscience.com has a full catalogue of all their products, please check it out when you have a chance.

Please read up about our new partnership here, including how you can help the Bucks!

2016 Season Starting Soon and Other News

2016 has already been one of the biggest years in Bucks' history and the league schedule hasn't even started yet. In the spring, Bremer started the year off right by capturing our first Midwest Championship. We beat traveled to Chicago and beat a very strong Grand Rapids team to capture the Midwest Division 3 title and qualify for our second national tournament. This was the first time Bremer was actually able to compete in a national tournament, despite qualifying in 2009. The Bucks won our first game at nationals against the Savannah Shamrocks to make it to the national final four. You can watch a replay of the match here. On the second day of nationals, Bremer lost a tough match to the Fairfield Yankees who went on to win the national championship in the next match two weeks later.

The good news is that almost everyone is back again this year and the Bucks fully intend to get back to the national stage again this season and to make it even further than the last year. Over the summer the Bucks competed in a number of Sevens tournaments, and a number of Bucks were involved with the Iowa Select Side Sevens team. Now the fall league schedule is almost here, and the Bucks can start their push to a national title.

The other big news is that for the first time ever, Bremer will be fielding two sides. In addition to the Division 3 team, Bremer is adding a new Division 4 team this season. This Division 4 team is meant to be a developmental team for new players, and more of a social side for old boys.
