  • (1888PressRelease) July 01, 2010 - Despite rugby's growing popularity, clubs around the country continue to struggle with competition, travel, and uniform costs. Fortunately, there is a company dedicated to helping college and high school rugby clubs raise thousands of dollars quickly and easily.

    One of their many success stories is the Los Alamos RFC U-19 Women's Rugby program, which was able to fund the trip of a lifetime to Ireland after raising $24, 937.

    Like many other coaches, Los Alamos' head coach, Lyle Shay, has been on a tight budget in recent years. Between uniforms, pitch bookings, equipment, insurance, clinics, and traveling expenses, affording an international trip seemed unlikely.

    As a club team, Los Alamos is completely dependent on players' dues and their ability to raise revenue in a small community. So when they were looking to cover the expenses for their trip, they turned to My Sports Dreams.

    "Partnering with My Sports Dreams raised our visibility and helped us expand our support group," explains Coach Shay. "Next year we have our sights set on attending the World Cup in New Zealand."

    To date, hundreds of rugby clubs have used My Sports Dreams' unique sales-free system including the University of Dakota, Temple University, Sierra College, Shippensburg University, The Citadel and the University of Albany.

    "Being on a tight club sports budget, this money was crucial to our spring operating expenses. Our profits enabled us to pay for athletic trainer coverage and offset the cost of bus travel to the Beast of the East Rugby Tournament in Rhode Island," shared John Durant, Albany's Head Coach. "I would recommend My Sports Dreams to any club interested in a positive fundraising experience."

    Founded in 2003, My Sports Dreams has developed a faster alternative to typical sales-based fundraising drives, instead creating a personalized color-printed sponsorship brochure that the company sends to the athletes' social network.
