Rookies

   

 

  • Anyone can join Amherst Women's Rugby! Rugby is a club sport and does not require any previous experience or knowledge to play. Most of our ruggers joined the team without knowing much about rugby at all, much less how to play! Whether you are a varsity athlete or have never caught a ball in your life, you will be welcomed. We will teach you the game and give you many opportunities to play. All you need is enthusiasm and a desire to learn!
  • We practice every week on Tuesdays, Thursday and Fridays 4:00-6:00. Our fall season begins in September and lasts until mid-October, while the spring season begins in late March and ends in the last week of April.
