Boston University Women’s Rugby is excited to announce the hiring of new head coach, Nick Hildebidle. We look forward to an exciting, competitive future with Coach Hildebidle.
Nick Hildebidle was introduced to rugby by a friend in his freshman year at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. Since graduating from Trinity Nick has played front row for the Mystic River Rugby Club in Boston and the Potomac Athletic Club in Washington, D.C.
Early in his playing career Nick was drawn to the idea of coaching, and has worked with several college and high school teams including Babson College and Georgetown Prep. In 2008 he was hired by Hyde Leadership Public Charter School in D.C. to teach Middle School Social Studies. While there he coached the Varsity & Junior Varsity forwards and was the Middle School head coach. Nick was also the director of the Hyde Rugby & Leadership Camp, a summer camp that introduces kids as young as nine to the game of rugby. Nick has also coached football at the youth and high school levels.
Nick has recently relocated from Washington to his native Cambridge in order to pursue his Master’s Degree in Physical Education and Coaching at B.U.
