Saturday’s A Rugby Day Classifieds

I get e-mails fairly regularly asking me to share that a team needs a coach, is looking for a game, and things like this. So I’m starting this post that will act as a “classifieds” section of the website.

I’ll post any classfieds type notices in here that you send in (or you can leave them yourself in the comments) and leave them up for a while. When they get old, I’ll strike them out or delete them. A link to this post will be under the resource links.

Our Senior side competes in MARFU Division I and our Developmental side competes against Division I and II sides. Most recently our Senior side finished 9 th at the USA Round of 16 this past October. We are based in center city Philadelphia with two centrally located practice facilities and a dedicated rugby pitch for all home games. We practice on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and play a competitive schedule against teams in PA, DC, MD and VA. Philadelphia Women’s Rugby is made up of a group of over 45 players with various levels of experience. Some have played for many years, while others just joined us this year. We boast several USA Women’s National Team pool players, USA U23 Women’s National Team players, and MARFU and EPRU select side players. PWRFC aims to support all levels of play and aspirations and is searching for a head coach and assistant coach to support those goals.
