Patrick van der Sterren
Trainer / Coach Dames
None of us were born with a rugbyball in our crib, but a lot of us do have past high school and college athletic experience in a variety of sports. You can depend on our experienced coach and players to teach you the laws and skills you need to play the game.
You can never be too small to play Rugby: everyone on the team plays a special role. In most cases the smaller players are the most fit and the fastest.
We play against women’s rugby teams from all over the Netherlands and Eugerio Maas-Rhein. The Ma,r,grieten team mainly consists of young students but most other teams we play against are a wild mix of women of different age, size and background.
Rugby is a sport that is intense in many ways. The social and sportive experiences made often produce long-lasting friendships and creates a unique team spirit from within. Hence, rugby is a good way to develop contacts socially and to make friends. Rugby also develops character and physical fitness which helps go forget about the at times stressful college/ university study periods.
Part of the school/college/university is growing as a individual and accepting responsibility for your classwork. In school/college/university you have many distractions and time management is of the utmost importance. We have regular mandatory practices every Tuesday and Thursday. Games are usually on the weekend. So get yoyrrear of the couchand bring your potential to the pitch!
Rugby is a physical sport. Every contact sport has its injuries. We will teach you the proper techniques and physical stamina to reduce the chances of injury (don’t forget your mouthguard).
