Sponsors

Dear Potential Sponsor,

The Bullard Rugby Club, a member of USA Rugby, will commence their sixth season this winter. The club is comprised of Bullard High School students. The goal of the club is to promote the game of rugby, and field a competitive team to play other high school rugby teams.

Although rugby is the most played contact sport in the world and high school rugby is the fastest growing category in the United States, the Bullard Rugby Club is the first of its kind in California’s Central Valley.  We have been a featured story by KMPH-TV, and the Fresno Bee for our ground breaking effort.

Our season spans a period of 14 weeks for 15's, starting in February and ending in April, then we continue into 7's and run into August. We can play up to 21 games over a season. During the season, the club members practice three days a week and will participate in games and tournament competitions. The Bullard Rugby Club plays in the Central Valley League and is the 2010-2011 Central Valley Champions and finished ranked seventh in Northern California.  In 2011-2012 Bullard finished the leagues runner up and placed sixth in Northern California.  In the 2012 -2013 Bullard produced the first High School All American rugby player to ever come from the Central Valley.

In order to be successful in its goals the club is looking for financial support from individuals and businesses to cover costs such as purchasing equipment, travel to competitions, league participation fees, referee payments and tournaments. We are a club and receive no financial aid from the high school, which leaves us to pay for all of the expenses through fund-raising and personal contributions.

We will continuously strive to promote the Bullard Rugby Club and its sponsor partners. In order to succeed in our endeavor to make Bullard Rugby a successful and recognized program, we are hoping to develop long-term relationships with companies interested in supporting the Bullard Rugby Club. In return for their support, the club would recognize our sponsors on our web-page, banners at home games, playing equipment, uniforms, event fliers and emails and distributing promotional materials during events.

As a new and upcoming club, we ask you to support us in becoming the premier High School Rugby Club in Central California. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our Head Coach Patrick Quan or Club President Lisa Kruse. We thank you for your consideration and hope for a long mutually beneficial relationship.


Sincerely,

Patrick M. Quan
