USC Rugby has been at the forefront of rejuvenating Women’s Rugby on the Sunshine Coast by providing teams in the U12, U14, U16 and U18 age groups.
2019 is shaping up be another exciting year with the Sunshine Coast Competition penciled in to be bigger and better. On the national scene the ARU have announced a Women’s National Sevens Competition. Being a university based competition this will be fantastic for USC Rugby this year and coming years.
The semi professional women's rugby competition includes players from universities around Australia as well as potential marquee recruits from the national Sevens team and state development squads.
The ARU is hoping the women's rugby competition will help accelerate the growth of women’s sevens, which has had a breakout year with the success of the Australian women’s side, with participation in the sport growing by a third in the past year.
