Becky Carlson

Head Women's Rugby Coach, Quinnipiac University and Founder, The Fearless Coach

Carlson enters her 13th year as an NCAA coach and has spent the last 10 as the head coach for Quinnipiac Women’s Rugby. Carlson led Quinnipiac’s transition from a brand-new varsity program into three-time national champions. Quinnipiac currently remains the only NCAA women’s rugby program in the nation to begin without a prior existing club program.

An author on issues in coaching and team culture development, Carlson’s most notable piece, “An Open Letter to the Athlete We Must Stop Recruiting,” is currently one of the highest viewed articles on the business and networking platform, LinkedIn.

Carlson has spoken at the United Nations on behalf of female coaches and equality in sport. She is also the founder of The Fearless Coach, LLC, which works toward supporting and empowering female coaches and administrators in identifying legal counsel to support Title IX and VII claims in higher education.
