We all know what it's like to play the best sport in the world, to be part of a strong community, and to go to battle with and against some of the best people you will ever meet. We have all learned about ourselves and life in general while enjoying the sport of rugby.
My co-coach Kelly Shank and I have been working hard to start the Ben Davis Girls Rugby Club program. As we are only in our second year, dues costs are $200 making recruiting very difficult. As a club, we receive no financial support from the school requiring us to pay for field rental, equipment, jerseys and registration fees ourselves. We have ordered our first set of jerseys and much needed practice equipment out of pocket. Our total fund raising goal for the 2017 spring season is $3500 and will go to equipment, field rental, and offsetting player cost.
We have a great group of players, but more are needed. We are spreading the word and there is a lot of interest, but the feedback is that the cost is too much. Please, if you have it in your heart to donate to our program and give a young woman a chance to have the same experience as you, we would greatly appreciate it.
To donate online use the above link and in the payment options section please select Player Scholarships and I can give you a name to put in the "In Honor of" or select Team and put Ben Davis Girls Rugby as the team name.
