We can probably agree that when it comes to rugby on the web in Florida, we just don't have good sources of information.
Most of the clubs websites (when they exist), are not updated very frecuently and normally can not keep pace with what is going on. The union websites have the same issue.
This is understandable because it takes a lot of effort and time, not only to develop the sites, but to keep them updated on a regular basis. Mmost of the times, a volunteer just does not have enough time to do all the upates or does not have the proper tools.
Rugby in Florida will be a website that aims to fill that void.
For players and fans, it will be the place to easily find out what is going on in the Florida Rugby world. The information will be available in diferent ways, either by county/city, by division, gender, etc.
We hope to get all clubs around the state interested enough to collaborate mainly providing information and in some cases making some updates on the information of their own clubs, teams, games, events. etc.
We are also seeking for ruggers interested in collaborating with the site on specific areas.
The site provides:
- Updated and detailed information on clubs, teams, tournaments, games and everything related to rugby in Florida for all categories.
- Game schedule and results for Florida Championships in all categories. Our goal is to publish game results on the same day the games are played.
- Clubs and teams will be offered for a small monthly fee online tools to manage rosters, dues, communications and more.
- Information related to how rugby is organized in Florida.
- Articles on different aspects of rugby in Florida.
- Interviews with coaches, officers, referees, players.
- Information about Rugby in USA.
- Links to all kinds of rugby resources.
- A Facebook page and Twitter account are also part of the project.
