There are many FYR alumni events that run throughout the season. Each spring, Yale Rugby holds its annual Yale Rugby weekend. To say it was anything short of a blast for the players, coaches, parents, and alumni would be a false narrative. The weekend tee’s off Friday morning at the Yale Golf Course. Alumni, parents, and coaches play an 18 hole scramble, followed by lunch.
A mentoring session is ran for the under grads courtesy of our alumni body. who give important tips on perspective careers, how to approach life after college, and how to stand out in a competitive applicant pool. Overall, the information session is deemed a major focus point and the team gained much wisdom from the experience.
The Saturday morning kicks off with a competitive game between the older alumni, or N.O.B’s, and the graduate school team. The Yale women’s rugby team follow with a 7’s series v Fairfield University. The Younger alumni were up next against the development XV of the Yale Men’s rugby program.
The first XV of the Men’s Yale Rugby conclude the days play, competing for the Nemec Cup V Fairfield University.
All parties headed to the end of the field to eat, hydrate and celebrate a great day of rugby. End of season awards are given out during the banquet. The players are already exited for spring 2019.
