Women's Rugby

Go All In for Women's Rugby!


Established in 1997, the Santa Clara University Women's Rugby Club, affectionately known as the BRUWS (Bronco Rugby Union Women's Side), the team focuses on teaching the basics of the game, creating friendships, and competing on a national level. Since its establishment at SCU, the women's team has placed three times at National's: 15th in 2011, 7th in 2012 and 10th in 2017. Currently the club competes in the Division 2 West Coast Rugby Conference against UC Santa Cruz, University of San Francisco, Cal State Monterey Bay, University of Nevada Reno, Sacramento State, San Jose State, Fresno State, Cal Poly and St. Mary's.






“SCU Women’s Rugby has been my favorite part of life at college, hands down. Having such a supportive, competitive, and fun-loving group of young women is invaluable. The impact this sport has had on me (emotionally AND physically) is lasting, and I know that this sport and these girls will follow me wherever I go.” 

- Sydney Lenoch, Class of 2022
