Dear Friends of the Stallions:
Please click here to see the 2022 summary of club activities and accomplishments. It has not been an easy three years for the rugby community in general and the Stallions in particular.
Our staff is committed to returning the club to our best days of fielding multiple sides at the high school and elementary/middle school levels. Relative to where we are now, this will be no small task.
Our participation numbers were quite low in 2021 and 2022, but preliminary indications are that those numbers are on the rise going into 2023. This progress has not come easy—or without financial challenges.
Facility rental, athletic trainer coverage, and marketing costs have all risen markedly. In order to create a club environment conducive to excellent growth and performance, we need to look beyond our dues structure and traditional sponsors for financial resources.
In an effort to meet these needs on an ongoing basis to ensure the continued success of the Stallions, we are hoping to establish the Stallions Supporters group. Our vision is that this group would make a modest donation to support the club on either a single donation or an ongoing basis.
Would you consider a donation to the club to help us to continue offering the type of program that we have since 2005? If we can enlist enough alumni and/or supporters in this initiative, we hope to be able to achieve goals such as:
- Establishing a marketing budget sufficient to position the club in such a way to ensure enough community awareness to drive a continued high level of participation.
- Increasing indoor training sessions in February from once to twice weekly.
- Establishing a home field in the immediate Arlington Heights area.
- In an effort to grow middle school participation, maintaining dues at that level in the area of $125-150.
- Ensuring adequate funding to underwrite membership for any and all interestd families.
If you are so inclined to help us at this time, clicking the donate button below will allow either a single, monthly, or annual donation.
This Supporters List will be appropriately recognized on the Stallions website on a continual basis.
Thank you in advance for your consideration of this initiative that will allow us to continue to provide this outstanding program to so many families in our community.
Yours in Rugby,
Arlington Stallions Rugby Club Staff
