Coordinating your own teammates based in one city is hard enough, as any match secretary or travel coordinator knows. Coordinating 20+ players/coaches/med staff including friends-of-friends-of friends you haven't met in person (hello, facebook!) is a whole 'nother beast. As everything comes to fruition we are nearing our kit design deadline and are seeking sponsors for jersey logo placement as well as donors to assist in more minor team expenses:
Stars Rugby 7s is bringing 2 rugby teams comprised of women's college and club players from around the US and around the . From January 22nd-27th we will be participating in the Las Vegas Invitational, part of the USA 7s tournament which is a stop on the iRB series around the world. Most of our team has international experience but some players are newer collegiate all-stars on their way up who will have their first exposure to this level of play. While we seek to win while competing at the highest level, it is also important to continue the camaraderie and spirit of the game that make rugby unique - to ensure the social traditions thrive and that we pass along the goodwill to the younger generation of players.
We also have a donation website through gofundme.com where interested parties can donate smaller amounts to contribute to team expenses. Each little bit helps: http://www.gofundme.com/
