Our Mission, Vision and Values

The Rochester Renegades Women’s Rugby Club was established in 1987. We are a team of women with diverse backgrounds and a mix of students and professionals. 

Our Fall season runs from late August to early November and from late March to early June where we compete in the Empire GU Rugby Women’s D2 League. We continue to play and practice over the summer and winter months. During the summer, we also participate in the Empire GU Summer 7s Series.

We are involved in matches not only in the Greater Rochester Area, but regularly attend tournaments held annually in Syracuse, Binghamton, NYC, Albany, Lake Placid and Pittsburgh. We love to learn about new rugby tournament opportunities!

In addition, we take pride in our hometown of Rochester, NY and enjoy volunteering and being active members of our community. We have assisted with cleaning and maintenance of graves at Mount Hope Cemetery, volunteering at carnivals and local business events, and fundraising activities. 

We believe that Rugby is a sport that all should have an opportunity to enjoy. All skill levels are welcome!
