Lindenwood Women’s Rugby

Alicia Barry is a current junior student-athlete and team recruiter. Coach Billy Nicholas  is available via email, ( ) for questions or any interest!

Lindenwood is the highest combined ranked rugby program Nationwide.

Alicia writes:

Our team is currently the USA Rugby 7s Division 1 Elite Champions as well as the top ranked program in the Nation 15s team. The program houses several National team players from multiple countries across the world, as well as Olympians. Our program mirrors a professional rugby environment including field, strength and conditioning, and film sessions throughout our weekly schedule. Here at Lindenwood, not only do our players have access to state of the art athletic programs and facilities, but also quality education. With small classroom sizes and dedicated faculty and staff, our student athletes are offered the best of both worlds. During my time here at Lindenwood I have grown as an athlete, student, and as an individual with the support of my fellow lions. I would like to leave you with a link to our digital tour in hopes that you will pass onto some athletes that are looking for an opportunity like this. I would love to chat more and connect you with our head coach as well if you have players in mind that you see being able to play at the highest University level.

I reaching out to inform you about the Rugby Preview Day I am host on campus and would like to invite any of your players to attend that are interested in playing college in college. This is basically an Open House for Rugby players with the addition of a mini practice session run by myself.
