Cagers Club - Rutgers Women's Basketball Fan Club

Rutgers Women's Basketball Official Booster Club

Welcome to the Cagers Club.  We are "the team behind the team," the official fan club of Rutgers Women's Basketball. Our website contains information about membership, events, road trips, news and other information to enhance the fan experience for supporters of Rutgers Women's Basketball. 

Membership information for the Cagers Club will be found in a message from rucagersclub@gmail.com and on the Membership Form once we get closer to the new season.


The new season will be here before you know it, so take a look at the schedule


There are numerous roster changes for RUWBB going into the 2021-2022 campaign with eight new players joining the squad, including 6 transfers. You can check out the players for the upcoming season on the Scarlet Knights website here to see the new names, faces and numbers.


The 2020-21 season was a different experience for all of us as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans were not permitted to attend games for any of the winter sports. RUWBB missed 8 games in January and early February due to COVID issues but made up for lost time by reeling off 9 consecutive wins to finish the regular season at 14-3 and 10-3 in BIG 10 play. Seeded #3 in the BIG Tournament, the team lost in the quarterfinals to Iowa.


Rutgers was seeded #6 in the NCAA Tournament but dropped its opening round game to #11 BYU 69-66 on March 22. The entire tournament was played in facilities in the San Antonio, Texas, area due to restrictions related to COVID.


As for the Cagers Club, we took our “Huddles” virtual in 2020-21 and featured guest speakers Like Hall of Fame Coach C. Vivian Stringer, Assistant Coaches Tim Eatman and Michelle Edwards, Deputy Athletic Director Sarah Baumgartner and Karen Kelly from the Compliance Department. We also heard from former Rutgers stars Kahleah Copper, J. Brittany Ray and Heather Zurich. The last huddle featured seniors Arella Guirantes, Tekia Mack and Mael Gilles. We hope that next season will see the return of in-person Huddles to share camaraderie and yummy food!

We also want to point out two important notes for Cagers. One is the importance of adherence to all NCAA rules related to Compliance.
