UNC Charlotte's Rugby Club Team
This fall, the UNC Charlotte Men's Rugby Club and Women's Rugby Club need your support. The two teams are raising money together in hopes of purchasing a new scrummaging machine which will be used at practice to improve the strength & skills of players.
A scrummaging machine is a padded piece of equipment that a group of forwards push against during practice. The purpose of the machine is to help players enhance their technique and strength.
The UNC Charlotte Men's Rugby Club was founded in 1989 and has become one of the most successful D2 rugby programs in the nation. It is one of the oldest club teams at Charlotte and boasts a long history of success. In both the 2017 and 2018 season, the 49ers were the only team in the Carolinas to qualify for the USA Rugby National Championships in both 15's and 7's, finishing as the national 7’s runner-up in 2017 and National Champions in 2018.
The UNC Charlotte Women's Rugby Club strives to bring a strong team by encouraging leadership and having fun. The Women's Club team gives back to the community while promoting the sport of rugby and representing UNC Charlotte in a respectful and positive way. The team is ranked nationally in the Top 8 Women's D2 collegiate teams for 2017-2018. They have won the conference championship the last 2 years and have been invited to the regional championships for the past 3 years. This year the Women's Rugby Club team is looking for a bid to Nationals.
Please make a gift today, of any size, to help the UNC Charlotte Rugby Club Teams be able to purchase a new machine for practice.
