The Mamas Rugby
managed by M. Wejle
The Mamas is a women's rugby team consisting of women, who are all mothers and still active rugby players.
This, for those who don't yet know, is, unfortunately not a very common combination. Women, for various reasons, tend to stop with their sport when they settle down with a family. Men, on the counterpart, continue. As you may understand, this is deeply rooted in our society and culture and the psychology behind is hard to understand and change.
However, we want to change this! We want to show the world - men and women, mothers or not, despite cultural background, that one can juggle both: family and being good athletes!
The mamas is more than a rugby team it is a manifest!
The money we collect goes towards paying tournament entry fees for tournaments, fun stuff for accompanying children, a top or other clothing with our name on for all full members, food and, to the extent possible, travel and accommodation and to even out expenses between members according to their financial situation or distance traveled, ie our intention is to aid elimination of financial obstacles for individual members when possible. It is truly non-profitable in terms of finance, however on the individual level, and in turn on the societal level - at least within rugby the profit and gain

I triggered a payout for these needs:
The €131 represent membership for two individuals.the membership covers costs for the mamas rugby and the players at tournaments. We always try to keep the expenses to a minimum and so included for our members and their families, if they are attending at the tournaments as well. The membership also covers a top for the player and supporter tshirts for their kids, regardless how many the player has. we always organise food at tournaments so that there will be lunch available for both players and family supporters. This year, we have played in Mallorca and in Stockholm the two donations this payout concerns, are two players who have participated at the tournaments and joined the mamas rugby family :)
