The players of the Wisconsin Women’s Rugby team pay the majority of the team’s expenses out of our own pockets. Donations to the team can help offset travel and equipment costs each season.

SPRING 2015 NATIONAL UPDATE:
The Wisconsin Women have qualified for the USA Rugby National Tournament. We are in the “Elite 8” of the nation and will be traveling to Charlotte, NC, May 30-31, 2015 to play in the East Regional (Elite 8, Final 4). If we win two matches there, we will have qualified for the USA Rugby National Championship title match on Saturday, June 13 in Glendale, Colorado. UPDATE: We won both our matches in North Carolina and play for the national title on Sunday, June 14 vs. the Sacramento Amazons!
We estimate our travel costs for the potential of these three matches to be $6,000 for hotels and team meals for our full roster of competitive players.
Should we lose in North Carolina in either match and no longer qualify further, any funds collected for the potential Colorado match would be put towards a new set of much-needed alternate color jerseys for our team. We currently only have one set of red match jerseys that we use for every competition and are three years old.
We love our alumni, fans, sponsors and supporters for helping us achieve our dreams on the rugby pitch! THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION!
