CCWRC All Star 7s Team to compete in NSCRO All Star 7s Championships

CCWRC will be putting together an All Star 7s Team to travel to St. Petersburg, FL to play in the NSCRO All Star 7s Championship at Eckerd College January 19-20, 2019.  We are seeking current players from Whitman College, Seattle University, University of Puget Sound, Reed, Lewis & Clark, Western Oregon University, and Southern Oregon University.

For those who do not know what an All Star Team (aka select side team) is, it is a team composed of players from various teams in a rugby conference. Typically they are players who have never played together, unless multiple players from one team are selected, but they have often played against each other. Player experience often ranges from rookie to seasoned veteran. These players are the best of the best and are very adaptable. Still not sure of what an All Star Team is? Think of our 15s and 7s Eagles.

We will hold two to three camps (team selection and practice) prior to our travel to Florida. For those interested in attending our camps (location and date(s) TBA) please email president.ccwrc@gmail.com. Nervous about coming to a camp on your own? Grab a teammate and bring her along!

Player of the Week, Valentine’s Day Edition

Lewis and Clark have named their Player of the Week: Sandra! “This is her 5th semester of rugby, she’s a flanker, and she loves playing because it’s a great outlet to relieve stress and it’s REAL fun. Outside of rugby you can also find her on the soccer field where she displays dangerous talent in goal. MVP of our intramural soccer team?” (credit-@lcwomensrugby)

Who is your player of the week?

This Saturday, EWU will travel to Willamette, Seattle University will travel to Whitman, and UPS will travel to Lewis & Clark, to kick off the first matches of the Spring season!! WOU has a bye this weekend in preparation for their travel match to Seattle University on 2/24. If you’re in the area, get on out there and watch some women’s rugby!!

Player of the Week

Seattle University’s Player of the Week is Hannah! “Not only does Hannah’s warm and playful personality bring fun energy to the team, she also happened to be an incredibly fly half. ‘I’ve played a number of sports growing up, but I stated playing rugby in high school and I have never played a sport with such an all around environment of love and support. It’s a sport and a community that provides women with so much confidence, which I think is so incredibly important, especially at this time in our lives. When I tell people I play rugby I usually get a look of surprise mixed with awe and usually a little fear, and I love that and I love rugby.'” Hannah is Seattle U’s Veep.

Stay tuned for a write-up about this Saturday’s upcoming matches, the first of the spring season!

 

Player of the Week

Bean SU

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)

7s World Cup Volunteer Opportunity

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).
