Monty Heald Senior Women’s Fund

Thank you for coming to this page to make a donation to the Monty Heald Fund in support of Rugby Canada’s Women’s XV program. With the help of generous donors like you, the Fund’s first campaign was a great success. Together we set a standard that has meant that not a single player is asked to reach into her pocket to offset team expenses. With your support, our players have been able to concentrate on their training and preparations on the road to the RWC.

Now we are on the road to the 2021 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand, played in the Fall of 2022 (postponed one year). During the past season many of our national team players went overseas to play in elite leagues in England, France and New Zealand to ensure continued tactical and strength development while clubs and universities in Canada were shut down. All players at home were on strength and conditioning programs and worked hard to stay connected and support each other. In summer of 2021 Rugby Canada held East and West camps for current and development players culminating in a top 50 camp in Halifax. The week-long camp was a huge success and the Red vs Black game on the last night highlighted how much talent we have in the program. Next up this fall is a two game series vs US and a tour to Britain to play England and Wales. To confirm, 100% of Monty Heald Fund donations go specifically to the National Women’s Fifteens team. Your contribution delivers a powerful message of support to the players.

Many thanks for your support!
