When you donate on Notre Dame day, your money goes further because there's $1 Million up for grabs! The first donation you make (a minimum of $10) earns you 5 votes, and each subsequent donation earns a single extra vote. When Notre Dame day concludes at 11:59 ET on Monday, April 25 all of the votes will be counted and each club will be given the percentage of $1 Million that corresponds to the percentage of the total votes that their club received. This means that a $10 donation could actually earn closer to $50-$100 for the club!
We are a competitive, high performance club team dedicated to succeeding and fostering a strong women's rugby program in 15s and 7s at the University of Notre Dame as members of the Division 1 Big Ten conference. Big Ten matches take us from Michigan to Penn State, Ohio State, and more! Our fall season consists of competitive conference 15s play. Success in the regular season ends with a trip to the Big Ten Tournament and National Playoffs! The spring season includes 15s matches mixed with 7s tournaments as we prepare for the Collegiate Rugby Championships, held June 2-4 in Philadelphia!
Last year's Notre Dame Day funds helped our team grow on and off the pitch! Success on the pitch was capped with our trips to the Big Ten Tournament and the National Championship tournament! We could not have made it to compete at Pittsburgh without the support from last year's Notre Dame Day contributions. Success off the pitch is perfectly summarized by the message presented in our Because Of Rugby campaign. The women who comprise our club really grow through playing the sport and find family in their teammates. Notre Dame day helps us not just maintain but actively promote this tradition and legacy.
