Women’s Rugby Club
The UMaine Women’s Rugby Club is a member of the NEWCRC. The young women that comprise this team comes from a variety of backgrounds and lifestyles, but all share a strong love for the game of rugby, giving the team a unique sense of community and camaraderie. Our goal is to share the love of the game with anyone who is interested in learning. We welcome players of all experience levels, even those who have never touched a rugby ball.
Rugby is a unique sport that requires all 15 women to work together for 80 grueling minutes, it isn’t a sport for the faint-hearted. This is the ultimate team sport and each and every rugby team has a special bond among teammates that can’t be duplicated by any sport. This bond continues off the pitch with a unique culture. The spirit and moral of the team is what fuels our ambition and drives our success. UMaine Women’s Rugby is a positive support system, an incredible social network, and an outlet that can free you from the narrowing constraints of society. More than anything, playing rugby is liberating. Taking the pitch on Saturday is one of the best releases one can find.
