Anna Maria College begins its first annual Rugby recruiting season with the founding of Women's and Men's club rugby. Coming in the Spring of 2020, Anna Maria College will be debuting its new club-level Men's and Women's Sevens team Rugby. Additional planning for growth of the programs is underway for men's and women's Rugby fifteens in 2021.
With the addition of a new sport Anna Maria College announced that Patrick Kennedy will serve as the head coach. Coach Kennedy is a Worcester native that played Rugby at Boston University and has been actively involved in the Rugby community as a coach and player with the Worcester Rugby Football club (WRFC).
