Welcome to the Washington DC Furies Recruitment page! Women’s rugby is a thrilling sport, which is growing in popularity world-wide, and our team has a history of over 30 years of rugby excellence.

The Furies are part of the Women’s Premier League, which is the highest level of women’s club rugby that is played in the country. With the Furies, you will have the opportunity to compete against other top teams across the U.S. In Fall 2013, the Furies introduced a Division II side, to provide players of all skill levels an opportunity to play in ranked, competitive matches.

The Furies welcome players of all skill levels.  We believe that rugby is a sport that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy year round. The spring season focuses on basics and development for 15s, the summer is dedicated to 7s, and the fall is the competitive 15s season.  In the winter, teammates often get together informally to play touch.

The Furies are a wonderful group of women, and we are very happy to welcome you. Soon you will know why we are “Proud to be a Fury!

  1. Hi, My daughter, aged 13, wants to play. Are there youth girls/teen groups in the area? Any suggestions for the best one?

  2. I’ve expressed interest in playing before and just didn’t have time. I would love to come check out a few practices now though!

  3. Hello,

    I have been playing for the Women’s Rugby Team at the University of Maine for 2 years and have recently had to move back home to Maryland. I fell in love with the sport and would love to stay active in it. Right now I am trying to lose weight and would love to start up in the fall. I currently live in Boonsboro MD.

  4. Dear Furies…………….I am a potential rugby player who would like to the team. Just recently moved to Washington from South Africa where I have been playing rugby (15’s and 7’s). Currently I am based at Wisconsin Avenue.
