New York Rugby Club
WPL Champions: 2009, 2010
New York Rugby Club has its roots in the Gotham City Women’s Rugby Club, which voted to join the New York Rugby Football Club, Inc. in 1997. Since then, the Women’s Team appeared in 10 USA Rugby National DI Club Championship Tournaments and finished in the top 3 from 2002 to 2008.
Based on this history of excellence, the NYRC Women were selected to be one of the founding members in the Women’s Premier League in 2009. NYRC won the inaugural WPL Championship and followed up with a repeat Championship in 2010. NYRC is proud to field both WPL and Developmental teams throughout the year.
