About Us

We are the UR Sledgehammers! We strive first and foremost to be awesome, to make a rugger out of everyone and finally to RUCK, MAUL, and SCRUM our way to victory! We want to spread the amazing and exhilarating sport of RUGBY to the campus community because big or small, tall or short, we can make a rugger out of anyone so come check us out! Absolutely no experience needed! The Women's Rugby for the University of Rochester does not discriminate against any individual or organization of individuals on the basis of age, color, disability, domestic violence status, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital status, military/veteran status, national origin, race religion/creed, sex, sexual orientation or any other status protected by law.









Team Experience

We are a team that is devoted to both creating a supportive atmosphere and being competitive on the field! We have competed on the national level but that doesn't stop us from being a fun loving group. Come to our practices to find friends for life and to learn skills you never knew you could have!


In the Fall practices are held Monday/Wednesday from 8-10pm at Southside field. Reach out if you are thinking about coming!


We compete in the Western division of the Upstate New York Small College Women's Rugby Conference. We usually have a game every Saturday of the season.


We love to get together off the field as well! We're a tight group and if you're looking for a place to fit in in college, this might be it.
