Alexa was recruited to play rugby at 13 years old when her coach saw her tackling girls on the basketball court! She continued to play through high school and college while studying psychology. Later she returned to coach at her high school and became co-founder of her women’s team.

Proud achievement

Alexa joined an underdog team which went from winning the team’s first game to winning the Provincial Championship in just 2 years! “An unbelievable feeling!”

Alexa’s goal

“I am ecstatic to have this opportunity to share my love of rugby internationally. I hope to be inspired by the countries I visit and the people I will meet along the way.”
