The US Women’s Rugby Foundation (USWRF) made their introduction at the 2006 Women’s Rugby National Championships held at Disney’s Wide World of Sports. USWRF Board Member Lisa Durham manned the table and fielded questions while handing out over two hundred flyers announcing the Foundations upcoming projects.

“Having a table at the Women’s National Championships was a great opportunity for our organization. I had the opportunity to talk to many players, administrators and coaches about our goals for the future. USA Rugby and 360 Sports Managementwere very supportive of us having a presence at this event. One of our first ‘sponsorships’ was to provide some funding for the social event that was held Sunday night at the end of the tournament. Our future goal is to reinstate the banquet and the opportunity for teams to not only socialize together but to recognize their achievements in a formal setting.”

The Foundation will next attend the USA Rugby Youth Conference December 9th in Memphis, Tennessee.
