Women's Rugby

The mission of the Women's Rugby Club is to learn the game of rugby, play as a team, and have fun! There are about 30-40 members but we do not hold tryouts or make cuts.

We are in the Mason Dixon conference which includes UVA, Virginia Tech, Temple, UNC, and Maryland. We play in both the Fall and the Spring seasons with the Fall season deciding our conference standing and playing our conference tournament in the Spring. We also play collegiate teams outside of our conference and women's club teams, such as Navy, Mary Washington, and Nova.

We participate in both 15s and 7s and have qualified for nationals for both types of rugby for the last two years. The highlight of our national tournament competitions was when we finished 2nd in the country at the 2013 7s National Tournament. We have been able to travel to Texas, Colorado, Pennsylvania, and several other states to compete in exciting, competitive tournaments.

Because there are no try outs for our team, everyone is welcome to join at any time during the year! Dues vary each semester but are generally between $80 and $100.

Practices are Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 4pm-6pm on the East Campus Lower Turf, located in the Festival Parking lot.
