BWRFC on the Pitch:
And just like that…fall matches are over. Boston Women’s Rugby ended the fall season in second place, with strong performances home and away and only two losses in the 7 game season. We hosted Philadelphia Women in a friendly home match and welcomed a new coach and new players. This season was a tremendous success, and gives us plenty of motivation in the off season to prepare for the remainder of our league matches in the spring and the road to playoffs in 2016.
Check out the Schedule Page for our match results and a look at our fall schedule. We can’t wait to update the page for a new spring season!
BWRFC off the Pitch:
BWRFC Skills Clinic-
Boston saw a great turnout to our fall skills clinic on October 8th. Players from Northeastern University, MIT, BC and Lincoln-Sudbury and Belmont High Schools all came out to learn some new drills, focus on skills mastery, and work with other players! We had a great time working with players to “Grow the Game” in Boston.
We will take our skills clinics on the road in the spring! If you’re interested in having a few BWRFC players come run a practice and work with your team in the spring, please reach out in the Contact Us page, We’d love to work with you!
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer with BWRFC:
For the 7th year in a row, Boston Women’s worked the 1st water station at the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on the Charles River. This event is a tremendous fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and players spent the morning welcoming, hydrating and cheering on walkers during their hike to end Breast Cancer. This volunteer event is an important tradition that we’re proud to continue each year.
