Newsletter – Saturday 7th October and Sunday 8th October 2017 – Week 7

NO TRAINING FOR THE U10 TO U17 THIS SATURDAY

Good luck to all the U10 to U15 who will be taking part in the Tanglin Rugby Club Cup Tournament this weekend. The tournament will be held at TRC grounds at Turf City. Your coaches will have told you what time your teams are meeting. If you are unclear of details, either check TeamSnap or drop your coach a message through TeamSnap.

There will be no training for the U10 to U15.

There is also no training for the U17 as there are not enough boys available for training.

The U8 and U9 are taking part in a JRCS Mini Tournament at Dragons ground – UWC East – on Saturday afternoon. The U8 and U9 will be training on Saturday morning however.

FUTURE HOPE KOLKATA BOYS RUGBY TEAM

For those going to the TRC Cup Tournament this weekend, look out for the Future Hope Kolkata boys rugby team who are taking part in the U15 group. Future Hope provides opportunity through its homes and school for some of the most vulnerable children from the streets and slums of Kolkata, India. Future Hope works to change the lives of destitute children and help them to become independent, self supporting members of society. Rugby is a big part of this journey.

Future Hope have brought 20 boys to the TRC Cup Tournament. They are the first Indian team to play in the Tanglin Rugby Club Cup, and it is also the first time that all the boys have been out of India. So please give them all your support and make them feel at home!

WELL DONE TO THE GIRLS TOUCH TEAMS AT THE CLIFFORD CHANCE TOURNAMENT

Three teams took part in the Clifford Chance tournament kindly hosted by TRC last weekend. The SCC Rugby Academy touch girls and coaches (and supporting parents) all enjoyed the well organised tournament. The U10s won 3, drew 1 and lost 2, U12s won 3 and drew 1 and came in as runners up in their age category. U14s drew 3 and lost 3. The coaches were so pleased to see the camaraderie amongst all the girls and the progress all the squads made over the weekend despite some injuries along the way. Well done girls! Bring on our own tournament on the Padang on the 28th and 29th October.

A reminder to touch, there is no training on Sunday 15th October due to the half term break. Training resumes for touch  on Sunday 22nd October.

UFIT BOOTCAMPS AT DEMPSEY – SATURDAY 7TH OCTOBER

There will be a UFIT Bootcamp at Dempsey this weekend, starting at 8:15AM for approximately one hour.
