Hey everyone!

Subject: Dartmouth Women’s Rugby – Recruiting


Hello Coach,


My name is Stacey Bridges, Assistant Coach of the women’s rugby team at Dartmouth College. As a NCAA Varsity program, we have been given a number of recruiting spots for promising high school players whose admission to Dartmouth we can support. I am on a mission to expand our recruiting outreach and cast a much wider net – in an effort to provide this opportunity to as many young, talented players as we can!


This is where you come in: Are there rising high school sophomores, juniors, or seniors on your team who have the drive and the character to excel at Dartmouth, who you would recommend for our recruiting spots in the coming years?  I would love to hear about them.  They do not need to be 4.0 students – please point any student with what you believe to be a B average or higher our way. If they are within range, excellent. Often, they are much closer than they may think and those are the students we are trying to reach earlier so that they know what to strive for and are inspired to make DI rugby and an Ivy League institution a reality. This is far more attainable than many players and coaches realize, and we want to see rugby open these doors for more and more athletes.


We would be grateful if you could help put us in contact with these promising students. You can simply reply with the names and details (grade, position, contact info) of any player that you think has what it takes to play NCAA Division 1 Collegiate Rugby. You can also have your players contact us directly or they can submit our Dartmouth Rugby Recruiting Questionnaire. I’ve attached a helpful guide for players interested in our program that contains some pointers for navigating the NCAA recruiting rules.


Additionally, I am planning a summer recruiting tour and would like to see your team in action. Are there any major HS girls tournaments this summer that your team will be participating in?


I look forward to hearing from you and working with you in the future. Please let me know if you have any additional questions regarding our program or the recruiting process.

Update to Select Side for Saturday, June 9th

Instead of practice, we will kickoff our Select Side prep with a scrimmage on June 9th. A little unorthodox, but a terrific opportunity for team continuity and player evaluation. We will still train on Sunday the 10th, location TBD.

On Saturday, June 9th, we will will play Rugby VA at:

Little River Farm

22006 James Monroe Hwy, Aldie VA


Kickoff is at 11:00. We will meet at the field at 9:00 am to go over some things ahead of time. There may be a JV game for later in the afternoon.

Players need to register ASAP. You will not play on the 9th if you have not registered and paid your initial down payment, or in full.
