Mollie McCarthy – Spring Hill College Has Men & Women Rugby Scholarhships

I hope this finds you well!  My name is Mollie McCarthy and I was just recently hired on at Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL.  I worked at USA Rugby for the past 4 years in the Coach Development department before coming to Mobile.  Spring Hill just brought the rugby team under the Athletics department and is dedicating resources to growing the program.  Currently there is a men’s team and we are starting up a women’s to begin in the fall.  Our goal is to treat both programs like the varsity programs and eventually take the women’s program varsity in the next few years.  We will be offering scholarships for both men and women.  I was just brought on as a full time head coach so I am here on campus year round dedicated to both teams.  I am working on creating some marketing materials but for now I have some facts attached, feel free to distribute and pass along my information to your team and any other teams.  If there are any players in particular you think might be interested please send me their e-mail addresses and I will contact them.  Also I would love to come to practices or meeting talk with the teams so if there is anything coming up this spring in your area, game, tournament or anything let me know. > > Any information, suggestions are much appreciated. > > Let me know and Happy Holidays! > > Best, > Mollie > > > Mollie McCarthy > Head Rugby Coach > Athletic Department > Spring Hill College >
