Attention: Rookies!

Interested in playing women’s rugby for Boston University? We will be holding an information session on Tuesday, September 6th on Nickerson at 7pm. Come and meet with our coach and e-board to get a better idea of rugby, and the team!

To give you an even better idea of the sport, there will be a rookie-only practice on Smith field Wednesday night–meet in front of Nickerson at 5:15 pm and make sure to wear comfortable clothing!

The Rookie Rugby Primer and the World Cup videos are great resources if you’re trying to get a better understanding of the game. Feel free to email anyone on the e-board with questions and we hope to see you tomorrow night.

BU Women’s Rugby Hires New Head Coach

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.

Welcome to BUWRFC!

Welcome to the new Boston University Women’s Rugby Football Club website! Here you will be able to find game and practice information and a whole lot more. We’re still working on building this thing up, so bear with us for now.

Everyone should start getting pumped for the Fall (and by “pumped” I mean “in shape”). We have a fresh start in Division 1 and the ability to show off all of our talent and skills. That said, we’re going to need to polish those skills (and get in shape) starting with pre-season in a week or so! Please remember to EMAIL MIRANDA BACK with your availability. If you aren’t receiving the team emails, let us know and we will get you on the list.
