25 years ago, Black Ice was created through the vision and hard work of a few pioneering and dedicated souls: Nealette Thomas, J.J. Graham, Kim Schroeder, and Dawn Comstock!


Looking to expand rugby in Colorado, their goals were to provide more competition to the Eastern Rockies Rugby Football Union and to promote a positive athletic experience for women of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and commitment levels. They sought to emphasize the fun and excitement of rugby.

25 years later, their vision is still going strong!
