"University of Southern California Women's Rugby (USCWR) is a university club sport that competes with teams throughout Southern California and Arizona. USCWR currently participates in Division II of USA Rugby college rugby, but we anticipate advancing to Division I in upcoming years. This team is part of the Southern California Rugby Football Union (SCRFU) and competes annually with the following colleges: CSUN, Occidental, Long Beach, UC Riverside, Cal Lutheran, UC Irvine, CSU Fullerton, and Claremont. At USC, this team is part of the Recreational Club Council. Team members enjoy weekly practices on well-kept campus fields, scrimmages in the Fall and nearly weekly games in the Spring, and a history of excellent social traditions."
Founded in 2008, USCWR began with a bang and continues to build rapidly within the University and the League. Today, USCWR has several sport traditions such as participating annually in scrimmages against UofA (Tucson) and ASU (Phoenix) as well as in several tournaments including Scrum by the Sea (San Diego). The team has also established well-loved social traditions, especially good relations with the USC men's rugby team, a Spring Formal, and travel to the Vegas 7s tournament.

Prospective Players

"USCWR accepts any interested students, of all skill and fitness levels, with or without rugby experience. That's right, no experience necessary! Most of our players came to their first practice never having touched a rugby ball before. We play 15 at a time and have approximately 25 ladies on the team, so everyone gets to play in matches. Any ladies who are interested in playing need only come out to practice and join in. Only equipment necessary for practice is cleats and a mouthguard, but feel free to come to practice to give the sport a try before you buy these. Our season is during the Spring semester, but we practice and scrimmage during Fall as well.
