Alumni Association Officers
Who can join our Association
The MRAARU was formed with the goal of enabling the rugby alumni, family, friends, and parents of current players to actively support MRFCRU in managing and executing the strategic, long term and “campaign-level” aspects of the Men’s Rugby program, allowing the coaches, club officers and players to focus on developing leaders of character, serving as goodwill ambassadors, and winning state, regional, and national collegiate championships.
