Going to the national U18 women’s rugby finals comes at a price
Playing on provincial representative teams always comes at a cost.
There’s a physical toll, but more often than not, a financial hit in order for players to compete at the highest level.
Adrienne Saari, pictured, and Hannah Morten are both among the local girls' rugby players on the B.C. U18 women’s team heading to the national championships in Calgary from Aug. 6 to 10. But they’ve got to do some fundraising first to help pay for the trip.
They plan to do a hot dog sale at Wal Mart Aug. 1 and 2 just before departing. Saari is also set up on www.gofundme.com/b8bx90, with anyone donating $100 getting their name placed on the team poster.
“Our coaching staff believes that we have an excellent opportunity to win the gold medal,’’ noted Saari, whose goal is to raise $2,000.
