Seattle University’s Player of the Week is Bean! “Bean is the captain of our team and our hearts. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you she’s a breathing, smiling, rugging ray of sunshine. This scrumhalf is a super dedicated and inspiring member of our team! ‘One of my favorite parts is how positive playing rugby is for women. I so totally appreciate that the rules aren’t softened or dumbed down for women, and that rugby works with women’s bodies instead of against them!!! It’s a great sport for all body types and skill levels!! I also think it gives women specifically, a lot of confidence…when I first started playing rugby, I was incredibly timid about it, but as I continued to practice, I became a lot more confident in not only my skills, but also myself. All in all, I’ve gotta say that #rugbychangeslives !!! I’m all the better for having played rugby and meeting such an uplifting community that loves to work hard and have FUN!!!!!!!’-Bean” (credit-@seattleuwomensrugby)

Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018 Volunteer Program
“Be a part of Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018, the first Rugby World Cup taking place on American soil! Beyond the competition at AT&T Park, our volunteering efforts will stretch across various locations such as hotels, training facilities, and transportation hubs with roles such as Bay Area Ambassadors, Rugby Geniuses and support for Media, Production & Operations teams”.
If you happen to be out of the loop, World Cup Rugby 7s will be held at AT&T Park in San Francisco beginning Friday, July 20, 2018 through Sunday, July 22, 2018. Volunteers are needed from Monday, July 16, 2018 through Wednesday, July 25, 2018.
This is an amazing opportunity to participate without playing! For those of you who need internships, your volunteering can be considered as such. Volunteers submit an application and provide information about where they would like to placed, which means there’s potential to have a somewhat tailored experience. Applications should be submitted soon so that interviews and training can happen in the spring (it’s only January and not officially spring yet).
Please see this Volunteer One-Sheet which will provide you with more information as well as where to submit your application. This opportunity is not limited to college students or ruggers only, so if this is something you would be interested in, submit your application now (https://www.rwcsevens.com/volunteer).
