As they enter their seventh season as a varsity program, the Ravens continue to strive for greatness. With an overwhelmingly positive response to their Future Funder project in 2017, they hope to meet and exceed their goal once again, and to have their most successful season on record.
Under the leadership of head coach Pat Thompson for the third year (formerly the assistant coach from 2012-2016), the squad has undergone significant changes.
“Despite still being a relatively new program, there is a strong history of women’s rugby at Carleton U. From the early days as a club rugby team to the transition to varsity status in 2012, we are very thankful to everyone who helped to create a foundation for the program to develop. We have a very dedicated group that is committed to becoming a top USports rugby team. As we continue to grow, we need the continued support from friends, family and the rugby community. Our needs may seem simple, but they will go a long way in ensuring we are in a position to train and perform at the highest level”.- Pat Thompson.
Your help and financial support will be greatly appreciated in building a program where the team can continue to develop.
We’re looking for your contribution to help support the future of Women’s Varsity Rugby at Carleton University.
Our athletes are young, extremely dedicated, confident, and hardworking. On top of year-round rugby training, the majority of the squad volunteers, has part-time jobs, and has full-time school. These young women are change-makers in the community, and would not be able to do it without your help.
With a young alumnae, we rely on the generous support of donors. With your support, we can ensure that they meet their objective, and to perform at their best capacity while representing Carleton University on a national scale.

The goal of our project is to generate general funds for miscellaneous program needs, such offsetting team costs and nutrition. With a successful fundraising campaign, the team will invest the funds to improve the program as a whole.
With your support, the Carleton Ravens Rugby team will continue to succeed in the future. Your gift will increase team morale, as the athletes will be able to pursue both academic and athletic endeavours. They will be able to continue their journey as young, female varsity athletes at Carleton University.
