Dear NYRC Family and Friends,
The NYRC Women are nearing the end of the 2017 WPL season and are gearing up for Nationals in Tucson, Arizona. Last fall, we finished the regular season with an undefeated 8-0-0 record and placed 3rd in the country at Nationals.
Building on this momentum, NYRC is currently ranked first in the East Conference in the 2017 season, with a 7-0-0 record, leading the entire WPL in points scored.
The Orange and Blue brought home a National Championship trophy in 2006, 2009, and 2010. We are fighting to win that title again. To do so, we need your help and support.
This year, the Women's Premiere League has expanded from 8 to 10 teams, welcoming Beantown and Chicago to the league. To ease this transition, NYRC and the other veteran WPL teams agreed to play the majority of their regular season games on the road. Individual expenses, including travel, lodging, and dues, brought the out-of-pocket cost for each player to approximately $1500 for the regular season. Additionally, the 2017 WPL Nationals will be held at Kino Sports Complex in Tucson, Arizona, adding a $400 round-trip flight and 3-night hotel stay to player expenses.
In an effort to alleviate some of this financial burden from our players, NYRC is looking for help from our family and friends. Travel aside, it will still cost over $6,000 for team lodging and rental cars.
With your help and support last year, NYRC was able to cover these costs, affording more players the opportunity to attend the tournament. With only two weeks left until 2017 Nationals, we would like to continue affording players this opportunity. Please help us show the country the level of hard work and dedication that exists in the NYRC family. Please see details below on how to donate.
From our entire team, we thank you for your unwavering support, past and present. We are training hard in these final weeks of our season to make you proud as we fight for the National Championship, and we fully recognize that we could not have achieved any of our successes as individuals, as a team or as a club without your support. Thank you for empowering us to represent the Orange and Blue.
For The Club,
New York Rugby Club Women 2017
