Women's Rugby is a club for girls with all abilities from never picking up a rugby ball to having played for years
Aberystwyth University Women's Rugby
If you're looking for fun, friends and foolery come and give rugby a try!
We cater for all abilities with the majority of new-comers never having touched a rugby ball before! However, with dedicated training sessions and encouragement from a great team then you'll quickly learn everything there is to know about the beautiful game! If you're an experienced player, then you'll have already found your love for the game and the older members will be able to challenge you still and continue improving whilst being an asset in the first few games whilst beginners are still finding their feet.
Our main training sessions are as follows: 7:00-8:30pm on Fridays and 2-3:30pm Sundays on the Astroturf outside of the university sports centre.
If you have any queries feel free to message or email our President Liv Carter email@example.com, or our Captain Georgia Reed-Davies firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Coach is Nick Boudier an experienced rugby player and a Qualified Coach. We are hoping that with the expertise and guidance, we are able to continue to grow and develop as a team, ready for starting our matches in the BUCS league this year! The Coaches have already proven to better our skills with their consitent dedication to our team, pushing us weekly to try new things and arrange alternative sessions for us, concentrating on different aspects of rugby. We are looking forward to having them guide us throughout the year and work closely with us during the upcoming seasons.
But it's not all about the rugby - Weekly socials are amazing too! Social nights are on Wednesday evenings, the main uni night out for all sports teams, and vary in locations depending on sponsorship and drinks deals. Even if you don't want to drink, you are more than welcome to come out because we are all part of a team and want everyone to enjoy themselves. We also host regular sober socials if you fancy a break from a heavy night out, so feel free to come along! Our weekly socials are usually themed night, such as Army, Toy Story, Back to School, etc. where everyone likes to get stuck in to try and dress to impress woth the best costumes.
Membership prices consist of £35 a year, and this covers insurance, participation in BUCS scheduled games, use of all university facilities and transport costs to games. You will also need to buy Team Aber Insurance which is £4 (you will only need to buy this once anually and are able to sign up to as many clubs and societies as you wish).
