I want to play for ARPTC because I want to play for the US National Team. I know ARPTC can give me the necessary tools to make my dream come true. This is my first year at Life University and this rugby program is very different from the club program I came from. I enjoy practicing every day and being surrounded by coaches and teammates who are constantly pushing me to become a better athlete. I know that ARPTC is more demanding and I am up for the challenge. I want to be in a training environment where I am challenged mentally, physically, and emotionally on a daily basis. This summer I want to train in a full-time environment, play high level sevens, and grow as a rugby player.


Financial Need:

Last year my mom passed away. My dad is not around, so I work to financially support myself. Without financial assistance I will not be able to pursue such an amazing opportunity. A sponsorship would help me get a step closer to achieving my rugby goals and would mean so much to me. I am seeking $3000 to pay for three full months of ARPTC Summer Residency.

Coach Reference:

Summer has been a standout player throughout her rugby career. Before coming to Life University, I noticed her incredible abilities with her team at the University of Virginia. She's a deadly weapon for any team on attack in both 15s and 7s. Her strength combined with her speed makes her a formidable opponent to any defense. Additionally, she's a caring and positive teammate. She works incredibly hard, putting in extra hours of skill work. She's a great athlete and person and I can't wait to see how far she goes in this sport she loves.
