Welcome to Navy Women's Rugby
Formed in 1995, Navy Women's Rugby has forged a very proud tradition of teams known for their athleticism, fortitude, and strength. The program develops teams that approach every event as another opportunity to build the legacy. Ever present is the traditional rivalries, passion, and regional pride that is expected from our conference. Navy Women's Rugby currently plays in the Mason Dixon Conference and the National Rugby Championships in the fall and spring seasons. Meanwhile, the team enjoys 'friendly' games with teams in both upper and lower leagues throughout the rest of the year.

Fielding players from all parts of the U.S., and all walks of life, NWR is a diverse club, where character is tested and revealed on a regular basis, and lifelong friendships are made.

- Building a legacy.
This Thursday, 15 of our players are headed to CRCs, the Collegiate Rugby Championship. They will compete in multiple games against the highest ranking teams in the country. Our team is remaining extremely positive, optimistic, and confident that they will compete and perform, moving out of the position as the "underdog" of collegiate rugby. We have many seniors playing in their last games of their careers right after commissioning as officers in the Marine Corps and Navy. It is a good way to kill time before heading to their ships, schools and TBS. We are excited to see what the future holds for these new officers, and for the team at this tournament!
The first day of games has the team on a roll with a 3-0-0 record. A short recap of the first day of competition can be found at the following links:
