Last Friday evening, the team arrived in sunny Hanover to start preparing for the 2015/16 season. The Team kicked off with a team meeting and a game of touch rugby in order to shake off the stiffness students had endured in their travels. The second and third days brought a steady ramp up in intensity as students re-familiarized themselves with the game after the summer break. Team building activities off the pitch included post-practice swimming in the refreshing Connecticut River and evening cook-outs. On the fourth day, Monday, the Team arrived at the clubhouse bright and early to have breakfast as a team before the first double-practice headliner. Tuesday brought a similar schedule to the previous day, but the ramp-up in intensity continued and fitness drills incorporated rugby applications.
The Team's first preseason game is on September 12th against Boston College followed by a game against AIC a week later on the 19th.
