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.


The biggest off-season news is that after a year away from the team due to Covid concerns, legendary Hall of Fame Coach C. Vivian Stringer announced her retirement on April 30, effective September 1. Please visit this link for details. Coach Stringer in her 50-year career led three different teams to the Final Four and took Rutgers twice -- in 2000 and again in 2007. In 2018, she won her 1000th game at home in front of a huge crowd, watched by dozens of her former players from her coaching tneure at Cheney State and Iowa, as well as many of her former Rutgers players. 


The 2021-22 season was led by Associate Head Coach Tim Eatman, filling in for Coach Stringer. The team compiled an 11-20 record and bowed out of the BIG 10 Tournament in the second round. 


Also last year, the beloved Rutgers Athletic Center -- the RAC -- became Jersey Mike's Arena. This season, the court will be called the "C. Vivan Stringer Court," to be dedicated at a special ceremony.


To see the results of the 2021-2022 games, check out the full schedule. Rutgers' season ended with a second round loss to Indiana in the BIG Tournament on March 3. The team finished the season with an overall record of 11-20. Wait til next year, with a new coach, a new court name and new opportunities.
