Rugby players in America are all amateur, but must train and play with a sense of professionalism to help push their club to the top of its division with the ultimate goal of competing for a national title.
Much like the sport of rugby in the United States, Washington Rugby Football Club is in transition. The club consists of players from numerous professions and all walks of life, but the goal is the same: show up Saturday and leave everything on the pitch. New faces are at the club and veteran players are taking on coaching and leadership roles.
I am one of the new faces at Washington RFC and in my debut season with the club would like to document training, practices, and matches in the hope of creating a video or series of videos to show the world what it means to be a rugby player in the United States.
Funds raised from this project will go towards travel for competitions, camera, camera mounts. Money raised beyond goal amount will go towards other club expenses and the funding of youth rugby programs in the DC area.
All donors will receive a hand-written thank you letter from me (if you leave an address during the donation process) and recognition in video credits.
This was of course a much better option to contribute funds to rather than than a Friday night drinking binge. Signal boost and donate!
