Rugby (W)

UNC Women’s Rugby is devoted to teamwork, camaraderie, and sisterhood. Our goal is to shape our players into strong athletes that will share their love of rugby and continue to play even after graduation. We accept all players of all body types and skill levels, and we will teach you to play the sport of rugby starting with the very basics. We are known as one of the premier women’s rugby teams in the South, and have been competitive on a national level for over a decade.
