The UMass Women's Rugby Club (UMass WRFC) is a Registered Student Organization. We are responsible for generating our own funding through various forms of fundraising, although the University does provide some nominal supplementary funding. We play matches with other rugby clubs at the collegiate level, mainly from the New England area, but we also play clubs from other parts of the US.
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.
