Humboldt Women's Rugby
Humboldt Women's Rugby comes together as a team to compete, and win, in Division II of the Northern California Rugby Football Union. We travel throughout Northern California and Nevada for league matches (Spring) and throughout the entire west coast during the preseason (Fall). The 2011 team finised 2nd place in the Northern California RFU, behind Santa Clara University, and 5th place in the Pacific Coast RFU.
About the Club
Women’s Rugby at Humboldt State University started in 1997.
We practice and compete during both the Fall and Spring semesters: The Fall is our preseason where we travel to tournaments and friendly matches in preparation for our league matches. Our league season begins when we return from Winter Break in January. We play approximately 6 matches over an 8-week period.
When we qualify for the playoffs, our season can be extended as far out as the National Championships at the end of April.
Membership QualificationsNo experience required! You just need a desire to work hard and have fun! Most of the people who join our team have never even watched a rugby match, let alone played the sport. It is a great way to learn how to play the newest Olympic sport, have a good workout, and meet new people. Members of the team train 2 hours each day, 4 days each week: M/W are condtioning sessions; T/Th are coaching sessions. In the Fall players must also lift 2 hours each week on their own. With rare exception, matches are always on Saturdays (but not every Saturday).
