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 an email message from President Bob Manfre from rucagersclub@gmail.com and on the Membership Application.


Rutgers announced on November 8 that due to concerns about Covid, Hall of Fame Coach C. Vivian Stringer will not be on the sidelines this season. Associate Head Coach Tim Eatman will take over as the Acting Head Coach.


The previous week, Rutgers announced that the beloved Rutgers Athletic Center -- known as the RAC -- has been renamed Jersey Mike's Arena following a deal with the Jersey-born sub sandwich company. We will have to get used to that new name!


The new season began on Nov. 9 with the first of three straight wins - over St. Peter's, South Alabama and Fairfield - before the first loss of the season, to Stony Brook. The team returned to its winning ways on Friday, Nov. 20, with an overtime win against Harvard. Rutgers then dropped its five games, including all three in St. Thomas in the Paradise Jam Tournament there followed by a road loss to Pitt and a home loss to Maryland. Check out the full schedule.


The first Cagers "Huddle" of the season was held on November 14 and featured Acting Head Coach Timothy Eatman and Director of Player Development Will Abrams as speakers, in addition to a wide range of sandwiches, salads and our "Tricky Tray" giveaways. The next Huddles are lunches on  Dec. 12 and Jan. 16. There will be a special pre-game Huddle prior to Senior Night and the Feb. 24 game against Iowa. 


This year our PREMIUM members will be getting a special Cagers Club zippered transparent bag that is approved for use at all Rutgers venues. There are many other perks to becoming a member, so check the Membership Application for details. Schedule permitting, we hope to take to the highways again this year on "The Rolling RAC" to support our team away from home.


The 2021-2022 team features an abundance of new faces on the roster, including six transfers and two more new players as well as several favorites from previous years. 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 due to COVID issues but we are ready to go this year. Check with the ticket office for information on Covid requirements. ALL FANS MUST WEAR A MASK.


We hope you will join the many fans who have made the Cagers Club the "Team Behind the Team" since 1979 and sign up this season!  Check out our social media information on the Cagers Club Facebook page and on Twitter (@CagersRU) as well as the News section of this site. Let's go, Cagers and RU! 


We also want to point out two important notes for Cagers. One is the importance of adherence to all NCAA rules related to Compliance. To learn more, please contact Karen Kelly, assistant athletic director for compliance, at kkelly@scarletkights.com.  The Cagers Club also has a Code of Ethics to make sure our fans behave appropriately at all times and do not interfere with the team, the staff or the compliance rules.

The Cagers Club officers for 2020-2022 are President Bob Manfre; Vice President Nancy Foulks; Treasurer Nancy Young; Recording Secretary Val Anderson; and Corresponding Secretary/Membership Chair Kathy Duff.  We thank Jan Cancro for her four years of service as Recording Secretary.  Jan, Cathyann Franko and Sharon Kosmo were elected to the Nominating Committee.
