2010 Collegiate All American touring squad needs your support, RugbyMapUSA.com

Greetings men and women of Texas! My name is Lisa Rosen, and I’m the head coach of the 2010 Collegiate All American Women’s touring squad.

I’m sure you all remember playing rugby in college, trying to balance work, life, and rugby. If you’ve played at a higher level, you know that it’s even harder. Since 2010 is a Women’s Rugby World Cup year, there are limited financial resources available for this years All American squad, so I’m reaching out to the community for help!

Both Nick James and Gina Stephano, of Texas A&M, were named as All Americans, and both were invited to train and compete with the touring squad, so the Texas Rugby Union is well represented!

Our Collegiate All American Women must shoulder the burden of travel and camp expenses on their own. I think that’s to much to ask of our best student athletes.

As a fundraising incentive, a new online resource was recently launched – RugbyMapUSA.com. RugbyMapUSA.com connects members of the rugby community with the businesses, professionals, teams, and individuals who give back to the sport. RugbyMapUSA.com, powered by Google, is working in conjunction with USA Rugby and Your Scrumhalf Connection (also based in Texas!).

All listing donations placed in the month of May will support the Collegiate All American Women’s touring squad. After May, proceeds will be directed to the USA U20s for their summer tour, to the Women’s National Team heading to the 2010 Women’s Rugby World Cup, and finally, to the Women’s 7s team, who are building towards the 2016 Summer Olympics. RugbyMapUSA will provide ongoing financial support to our various WNT programs.
