GRR: Women DII College
Fordham University's women's rugby team is looking for a head coach.
The team runs a roster of about 25 players and they are of varied experience and abilities. Playing in ACRA's Tri-State Conference, Fordham trains twice a week and plays on Sundays. The college has paid the coach a stipend of $1,500 per semester, and this is a two-semester position.
Reports are that the Mid-Atlantic Rugby Conference (MARC) Women's D2 league is joining the American College Rugby Association, ACRA, to manage its league and playoff competition.
We're trying to figure out where everyone will play.
As this writer said in a Facebook Live Q&A this week, for many college players, what their umbrella organization turns out to be won't change too much. Small college teams will go on as before. Men's D2 college teams will, with one or two exceptions, go on as before.
The Tri-State Collegiate Rugby Conference Women's Division II teams have aligned with the American Collegiate Rugby Association (ACRA) for the 2020-21 Season.
In a move that could harbinger another stirring stick in the pot of college rugby, the New England Wide Collegiate Rugby Conference (NEWCRC) is excited to announce the commitment of their Women's competition to the American Collegiate Rugby Association (ACRA).
