Looking for recreational opportunity? Oglebay Park and Resort Center remains the nation’s model municipal park and continues to offer outstanding recreational opportunity to both residents and visitors. Its Festival of Lights attracts a million visitors annually. Its growing flower displays will soon surpass the Festival of Lights. Swimming, tennis, horseback riding, picnicking, hiking, skiing and fishing will augment your visits to the museums, shops, conference and special events centers, and outdoor summer entertainment series. Two professional golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones and Arnold Palmer are in addition to the Crispin Center golf course and a par three course.

Wheeling Park and 35 neighborhood playgrounds and ball fields dot the city.

Our paved trail system which is the region’s largest and our state’s largest urban system has 24 miles already constructed for walkers, joggers, cyclists and roller bladers. Additional miles are funded and in design stages.

The City of Wheeling operates a first-class 10,000-square-foot skatepark featuring bowls and street elements. The project was funded by the City of Wheeling, the Land & Water Conservation Fund, the Tony Hawk Foundation, and various local donors through the efforts of the Wheeling Skatepark Committee.

Is this a sports town or what? Little League baseball and girls softball teams are numerous and active. One of the nation’s oldest and best skilled amateur hockey associations is here. Soccer was active here long before it caught on nationally; the original soccer moms live here. Wheeling is proud to host two professional minor league teams. The Wheeling Nailers are a successful East Coast Hockey League professional hockey club and  football fanatics love active high school events in the nation’s largest association of high school sports, the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference.

The great 1849 suspension bridge of Wheeling extended the National Road west, bringing people and goods to the city. At the northernmost navigable port on the Ohio River, overland routes, river traffic and railroads converged, attracting entrepreneurs and manufacturers of iron, steel, textiles, glass, tobacco and other goods.

The railroads provided access to markets for Wheeling products. At one time as many as seven railroads served the city, including the Baltimore & Ohio, the Wheeling & Lake Erie, the Pittsburgh Wheeling & Kentucky, the Hempfield, the Panhandle, the Ohio River & Western and the Pennsylvania Railroad. Today, no railroads roll through Wheeling, and the long-familiar train whistle of yesterday is silent.

In their place, the city of Wheeling has converted more than 13 miles of former railroad beds into an extraordinary trail experience.
 

The Ohio River Trail runs north-south starting at the city line in South Wheeling and reaches the Pike Island Dam where the trail continues into Brooke County. In Wheelings 8.5-mile distance, the trail follows the river, passing many industrial sites and crossing through Wheeling Heritage Port.

Along the way, stop to read the historic signs, take in the National Historic Landmark Wheeling Suspension Bridge, and view the river traffic particularly as barges pass through the locks at Pike Island.

The Wheeling Creek Trail runs east-west providing opportunities to cross the Hempfield Viaduct high above the creek and experience the Hempfield Tunnel. The trail begins in downtown connecting to the Ohio River Trail at Heritage Port and extends five miles to Elm Grove.

The Wheeling Heritage Trails are an important element adding to Wheelings vitality. The Wheeling National Heritage Area preserves and celebrates the citys dramatic setting, resources and history, including its role as the birthplace of the state of West Virginia during the Civil War. A National

Heritage Area is a part of our countrys landscape that has been recognized by the United States Congress for its unique contribution to the American experience.

Wheeling Jesuit Rugby strives for excellence both on and off the field. As a newly formed varsity rugby program, WJU Rugby aims to be one of the top Division One Collegiate programs in the country. Our athletes recieve top-level coaching, and players are developed to compete for All-American honors.

WJU Rugby Student Athletes follow a rigorous training and strength & conditioning regimen, balance their team obligations with the demands of college life and in the process learn the meaning of teamwork, discipline, and the sacrifice associated with the pursuit of a common goal.

All athletes at some moment experience defeat and then must move on with their lives; they will also taste success and it is hoped will learn to be gracious. These are important lessons learned from competitive sports that are fully consistent with WJU Rugby's goal of developing the mind, body and spirit. 
 
Eric Jerpe is our Director of Rugby/Head Choach and Eric Taber serves as Assistant Head Coach. Both coaches have significant leadership skills and will be working together to build the best Rugby Program in the country. Coach Jerpe can be reached at ejerpe@wju.edu and Coach Taber can be reached at etaber@wju.edu

The Rugby Team is open to all and fields teams at the Varsity and Junior Varsity levels. WJU Rugby plays a split fall and spring season, culminating with the USA Rugby Collegiate Playoffs and Championships.
