NYRC Is proud to announce that NYRC veterans Tiffany Faaee and Alycia Washington have been selected to represent the USA on the USA Eagles Women's 15s squad on the road to the 2017 Rugby World Cup.
Please donate here to support them, or read on to learn more!
The next 3.5 months will require them to commit a tremendous amount of time, effort, and leave from work. The World Cup selection camp will take place for 10-12 days in June in Chula Vista, CA. World Cup residency kicks off later in June and runs through late July. The final squad will convene in Washington, DC at the July and depart for Ireland where they will remain through most of August.
USA Rugby will provide them with a per diem but only during the World Cup. During all other times of assembly, they are tasked with absorbing the financial burden of unemployment or leave from work. They greatly value this privilege and an honor to represent NYRC, so are looking for club support to offset the financial burdens.
Tiffany says: "We would really appreciate any support that NYRC can provide. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. Thanks for your time and consideration."
