Team Biography:

Welcome Everyone!^^

We are the Montclair State Women’s Club Rugby team! For those who don’t know, Rugby is a sport like backyard football where we tackle, fight & challenge each other for a egg shaped ball that we use to make a try or a “goal.” We promise you, it’s not as scary as it sounds. We’re looking for girls to join our family in the upcoming semesters. No Try Out necessary. No Experience necessary; if you’re new we’ll teach you everything you need to know!

If you’re interested or have any questions please feel free to contact our President or our Vice President for more info. We look forward to hearing from you guys!
