I hope this letter finds you well. Please read below in regards to the start of the 2022 season, and the monthly membership program we’ve developed for former members, sponsors and supporters.
The club will once again be competing in the Men's National Division 1, Men's National Division 2, and Metropolis Valkyries will be competing in the National Women's Division 1. We will also be fielding a variety of 7's teams both competitively and socially. The club is recruiting hard at all levels and continuing to ramp up its total number of participants.
With the continued increase in total numbers and high number of matches comes an increase in our need to provide an expanded travel budget, training equipment, and training facilities for our players. Please consider pledging your support to Metropolis rugby through our monthly membership program.
The monthly membership program is designed to provide steady funding to the following yearly operational expenses: Coaching Staff, Training Equipment & Facilities, Medical Supplies, Travel Costs and Recruitment Funds
In 2022, we are again asking for former players, family, friends, and supporters to sign up for this program to support the club.
The Vehicle: recurring debits from former players, family, friends, and supporters. The club has set up a recurring debit program through our club website, www.metropolisrugby.com. You can sign up now by clicking on the attached link below.
Rather than asking for a big check yearly to support the team, usually with a moment's notice, we are asking participants to sign up for the monthly membership program. Simply commit to a small monthly sum, supply your credit card, and that’s it. The credit card is charged monthly and no longer will you be asked to contribute one large donation each year.
What we’re asking of you: First, sign up at a starting commitment of $10 or $25 or more per month. Second, contact your old teammates you played with not currently on this program, and help us sign up at least two of them. Third, ask these friends to do the same. We’ll continue to our annual goals of members in no time.
Year 1: $25 per month, at 25 members would bring the club $7,500
Year 2: $25 per month, at 50 members would bring the club $15,000
Year 3: $25 per month, at 100 members would bring the club $25,000
and so on...
As previously mentioned, this revenue would be put toward coaching staff, training equipment & facilities, medical supplies, travel costs and recruitment funds. In just a few short years we would be able to make some significant moves from simple things like being able to give every player their kit when they pay their dues to ensuring more consistent indoor training facilities, and bolstering our coaching staff to adequately manage and service all playing sides.
Right now, an average player for Metropolis Rugby Club pays $6,000 in one year to represent our great club. The $6,000 is comprised mostly of travelling which includes flights, car/van rentals, gas, and hotels to name a few.
