My Students

Our student-athletes are all on free lunch vouchers and from an urban environment. Most of our students cannot afford to purchase their own equipment, therefore, we provide it through donations and fundraisers.. We have no funding for starting new sports such as rugby, an international sport which is growing exponentially in the United States, as it has been reintroduced in the Olympics.

Our students come from the inner-city and live in a high poverty and crime area.

We are creating a Rugby Club to give students more options for participation, travel, personal development, and scholarship offers. My family and I have started several teams in Oklahoma and I have coached young athletes who are now in college on scholarships and playing professional, international rugby.

My Project

Our students cannot afford uniforms and equipment, or state and national dues since we are on 100% school vouchers for free breakfast, lunch, and a snack dinner. We depend on donations and fundraising. Students will be able to compete in an environment that requires strict uniform standards.

The student-athletes need rugby shorts and balls for opportunities to see the world outside of their community, commit to community projects, and time to focus on their education instead of spending countless hours doing fundraisers in a school that has fundraisers for varsity and club activities.
