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! And we have become accustomed to using electronic tickets and wearing masks! Rutgers also instituted a new policy requiring that proof of vaccination be shown to enter the arena.

The first Cagers "Huddles" of the season were held on November 14 and December 12. Among the speakers so far have been Acting Head Coach Timothy Eatman, Assistant Coach Michelle Edwards, Director of Player Development Will Abrams and Brian Shank, Director of Video and Assistant Director of Basketball Operations. We serve sandwiches, salads and sweet treats as well as offer a variety of merchandise for our "Tricky Tray" giveaways. The Jan. 16 Huddle has been canceled due to a change in the RU policy that now prohibits in-person gatherings for the month of January. There will be a special pre-game Huddle prior to Senior Night and the Feb. 24 game against Iowa if the policy allows. 


This year our PREMIUM members received 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. 


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.
