Support UBC Women’s Rugby

Help our student athletes raise funds in support the UBC Women’s Rugby.

Project Description

The UBC Thunderbirds Women’s Rugby program has a proud history, and has been building momentum to establish a legacy of success on the field and inside the classroom. The funds raised will be used to fund our UBC Club Rugby program, the club program gives our student athletes the opportunity to play the sport they love year round. The funds raised will go towards team travel, hosting and uniforms for our student athletes, as well as, providing additional academic and strength and conditioning support. This support will provide the financial support so our student athletes can focus on their studies while being part of a competitive club rugby program.

Challenges and Impact of Your Support

The defending Canada West champion UBC women’s rugby team is continuing to build our impressive program, but we can’t do it without your support. Your contributions will help support the student experience both on and off the field. Without your support student athletes would have to find their own way to pay for the cost incurred for participating in the club program.

About UBC Women’s Rugby

The UBC Women’s Rugby program believes in continuing the tradition of developing balanced student athletes who demonstrate a range of dynamic abilities on and off the field; by doing so we will work towards our program goal of becoming the best rugby development program in North America. The team is coming off a historic season claiming the program’s first Canada West title and qualifying for the U SPORTS Women’s Rugby Championship. Following the Canada West final, Shoshanah Seumanutafa was named 2019 Canada West Player of the Year, and Dean Murten the 2019 Coach of the Year.
