Rugby @ Marywood
Fierce. Focused. First.
Be all three at Marywood University as part of the first men’s and women’s varsity rugby teams. Both programs will begin competitive play in the fall as members of USA Rugby (the national governing body) and the Small College Division of the Mid Atlantic Rugby Conference (MARC).
Marywood University’s Rugby Festival will boost competition opportunities for high school girls by providing a safe environment, promoting sportsmanship, and giving high school girls’ rugby teams a tournament that they can call their own.
The tournament will be capped at 16 teams. Depending on the number of participating teams, different divisions will be formed to promote a fair level of play and to give each team quality matches that fit their skill level. Each team is guaranteed four matches.
Concessions, tournament apparel, and Marywood Rugby apparel will be provided, and all participating teams will have the exclusive opportunity to talk to Marywood’s coaching staff and Women’s Rugby team throughout the day, to learn about Marywood University, and to discover what it’s like to play college-level rugby.
Make checks payable to Marywood Rugby and mail to John Gulden at 2300 Adams Ave. Scranton, Pa 18509. To secure your spot in the tournament, submit your payment by August 1, 2018. Marywood University’s Athletic Department has an agreement with several hotels where you can get discount rates.
Marywood's Center for Athletics and Wellness offers extensive modern facilities for fitness, recreation, and athletic opportunities, including a premier fitness center, a climbing wall, Aquatic Center, an elevated running track, a dance/aerobic studio, an arena to showcase Pacer Sports, and high tech athletic training areas.
Outdoor athletic facilities include six tennis courts, a sand volleyball court, and basketball courts. The baseball and softball fields are some of the finest in the region, and Marywood offers a multipurpose natural grass field, as well as a synthetic turf field with lighting for evening events.
You're ready. You want to start now. You want to set records.
At Marywood, you can rule on the field and in the classroom. Our student athletes succeed, athletically and academically, and we have the record to prove it. The Pacers never stop, on or off the field.
