Women's Rugby

About The Club
The women’s rugby club (UMass WRFC) is responsible for generating its own funding through various forms of fundraising, although the University does provide some supplementary funding. The club plays matches against collegiate rugby clubs from New England and various parts of the US.

The WRFC plays its matches in the fall and spring and is a part of the New England Rugby Football Union (NERFU). The club competes for the National Collegiate Championship, beginning with Division I league competition in New England in the fall.

To join the team, come to the field for the practices. If you have never played rugby, not to worry. The majority of the team did not play before college. Club members appreciate anyone who has the courage to try a new sport.

To be able to participate fully, you will need a mouthguard and cleats. Rugby cleats, soccer cleats or anything without the toe cleat will do (not softball cleats). It is also recommended that you get rugby shorts and socks, which you can order online or through the team.
