Welcome to the Middlebury College Women’s Rugby Club (MCWRC)!
We welcome ruggers of all levels; no experience necessary. Read below about our organization and check out the New Players tab for more information about how to join us!

MCWRC works under the organization of  Rugby Northeast (RNE) and USA Rugby.  These organizations help to promote the education of and support for the game while maintaining safe regulations.  These associations follow the guidelines established by the International Rugby Union (IRB).

MCWRC works with students attending Middlebury College to teach the sport to all levels of athletes.  Many students join the club having no prior experience with rugby, and some have never played an organized sport.  Still others have had experience in high school with rugby.  We encourage all levels to contribute their talents to the club in order to have the greatest level of success by furthering the growth of the club. MCWRC is an inclusive community that supports all identities of any kind.

Our club plays two seasons: Spring and Fall.  Spring is a time to teach new positions to players and to provide time to all players in game situations.  Fall is the league season in which MCWRC competes in Rugby North East’s women collegiate Division II against other colleges in the league in hopes of winning the championship.

We encourage players of all levels to join the club and to learn the fun of rugby.  If interested, please refer to our New Players tab.
