Men's Rugby

The Gladiators

In ancient times, a gladiator was an armed combatant who entertained audiences in violent confrontations. Through total sacrifice and commitment to training; they prepared for battle, often-risking life itself – all for the entertainment of the crowd.

As modern day Gladiators, the Life West Rugby program draws on similar dedication and commitment to prepare players to for the unrelenting challenge that players face on the rugby field. And in the same way, the ultimate goal is to entertain the spectators through the style of game we play.

Formed in 2013, the Life West Gladiators represent the chiropractic profession as the flagship Athletics program at Life Chiropractic College West. Immediate success came in the form of making the Division III National Championship final in year one, along the way winning titles in the Northern California Rugby Championship, the Pacific North Conference Championship and the Western League Championship.
