Off-season training has officially concluded in favor of regular season practices.Our recruitment chairs have been busy finding new talent, and yesterday's practice was littered with new faces. All new players are welcome and interested individuals should contact our Recruitment Chairs! The team is currently on the waitlist for the Ariel Re Bermuda Sevens Tournament, and excitement is high as we hope to secure a spot and become the first Villanova club sport to travel and compete internationally. Stay tuned for the release of the official 7's schedule!
Finally, one of VURFC's own, Aaron Earlywine, was recently awarded the 2015 Kevin Higgins College Scholarship for his rugby accomplishments and rugby development!

Villanova rugby has been busy this offseason, as the start of sevens grows closer. The team has been conducting multiple simulated games to keep players in shape, and to get newer players used to the tactics and physical demands of the game. Moreover, the new Strength and Conditioning Chair David Schulz has been working the team hard, with runs and sprints in the cold. But as any player knows, hard work pays off in the long run!
Moreover, Villanova rugby has been invited to Bermuda to play against some of the best sevens competition on the east coast! The 2016 Ariel Re Bermuda
Sevens Tournament starts March 16th and features teams such as Kutztown, Columbia, Stony Brook, and now the Wildcats themselves. Currently the team is working on the logistics of the trip, more information to follow.
