The women’s rugby team is looking for new team members. Head Coach Colleen Doherty will hold informational meetings on Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 5.30 p.m. and Wednesday, Feb. 19 at 12.30 p.m. The meetings will provide details about tryout dates, as well as introduce both new and experienced athletes to the game of rugby.
The reason for tryouts is to “increase numbers and round out the roster with crossover athletes,” Doherty said.
Tryouts will be geared towards prior athletes, including former high school athletes or collegiate athletes. However, anyone is welcome to try out; there is no experience necessary.
“We want all people thinking about coming to the informational sessions,” Doherty said. “We have several members on the team who never played rugby before college, but often did a variety of sports in high school.”
Doherty encourages out-of-season athletes or fall senior athletes who are finished with their season to come to one of the informational meetings.
Any further questions about tryouts can be emailed to Doherty at Colleen.Doherty@liu.edu.
