Rugby (W)

UNC Women’s Rugby is a strong, competitive team dedicated to remaining one of the premier teams in the South. We hold a strong legacy of promoting not only athletic excellence, but also creating a sisterhood built on camaraderie and teamwork. We openly recruit year round for new members. There is no prior rugby experience required to join the team; in fact, most of our players have no rugby experience before joining the team. We have an abundance of coaches and veteran players that are happily willing to teach new members correct technique and strategy.

Fundraising/Dues: Each player pays $200 per year ($100 per semester) to play on the team. However, for players experiencing financial hardship she can come to one our officers confidentially to work out an alternate arrangement to subsidize her/their dues.

How to join organization: Open Membership. Join at any time
