FRIENDS OF DARTMOUTH WOMEN'S RUGBY
Dartmouth Women's Rugby became the College's 35th varsity sport in July 2015, but the history of the program dates back to 1978 when it was officially founded as a club. Over that time, the team has evolved from a group of novice ruggers to two-time National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA) National Champions (2021, 2018). Friends of Women's Rugby support has enabled DWR to field a development side and increase its coaching staff.
“Friends support allows us to fund a second assistant coach, which is hugely important. With three dedicated coaches, we’re able to provide individual attention to each student-athlete while growing a deep roster that can win at the highest level.”
