Women's Club Rugby

Women's Club Rugby at AU

Augustana Women’s Club Rugby is affiliated with the Small College Division of the National Collegiate Rugby League. Augustana's club is part of the Prairie States Women’s Collegiate Rugby Conference (WCRC), along with the University of South Dakota (USD), South Dakota State University (SDSU), University of Minnesota Morris (UMN-Morris) and Wayne State College.

Augustana Women’s Club Rugby is interested in recruiting players of all types and athletic abilities. The club introduces its players to the physicality of the sport, which begins with soft falls and tackles to ensure comfort on the field — recent training camps have offered the club an opportunity to practice basic skills and drills, as well as run through game scenarios.
