Newsletter – Saturday 21st October and Sunday 22nd October 2017 – Week 8

 

WELL DONE TO THE SCC U11!

Congratulations to the U11 SCC Rugby Academy team who were Cup Winners at the Tanglin Rugby Club Cup Tournament. The team were unbeaten throughout the whole tournament. A fantastic achievement for our smallest squad!

Our U13 and U15 also did very well, both reaching the cup finals. Well done to all the children who took part in what turned out to be a very wet and muddy event.

NO TRAINING FOR THE U8 TO U9 THIS SATURDAY

The U8 and U9 are taking part in a JRCS Mini Tournament at Centaurs on Saturday morning, so there will be no training at Dempsey for those age groups.

U7 HOSTING CENTAURS ON SATURDAY 21ST OCTOBER

The U7 will be hosting Centaurs for training and friendly matches at training on Saturday morning. If you see any lost Centaurs, please point them in the right direction!

KIT PICK UP AT THE TOURNAMENT

Unfortunately there will be no kit pick up on Saturday 21st October. We will be bringing all Paladin orders to the tournament on the 28th and 29th October if you would like to pick up your kit from the Eagles Nest before your games start. We will also bring down playing jerseys for any new players who have not picked up their tops yet.

SCC RUGBY ACADEMY TOURNAMENT VOLUNTEERS

Our tournament is fast approaching, and in order to ensure the tournament runs smoothly, we are going to require the help of volunteers. Specifically pitch managers/marshals, whose job will be to ensure that refs are present and ready, teams are ready to take the pitch as soon as the previous game ends, and collecting the score at the match end. Pitch marshals should be willing to work at least half a day – we will ensure there are enough refreshments through the day to keep you going!

If you have time to help out on either Saturday 28th or Sunday 29th October, please drop Sarah a line at info@sccrugbyacadey.com

BALL BOYS FOR THE SCC7S

The SCC International Rugby 7s will be played on the Padang from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th November. The SCC are looking for Ball Girls and Boys (aged 9 upwards) plus adult volunteers throughout the 3 days and would like to give the opportunity to as many Academy members as possible.

With the SCC 7s attracting International and professional teams the Ball Boys and Girls have to work hard to a standard that befits the event and the professional players that are on the pitch. However, this is something that the kids really enjoy, with many doing it regularly every year, as they get to be up close to the action on the pitch and be very much part of the event.

Please complete the form at the following link in order to sign up – SCC7s Ball Boy/Girl Volunteer Form

UFIT BOOTCAMPS AT DEMPSEY – SATURDAY 21st OCTOBER

There will be a UFIT Bootcamp at Dempsey this weekend, starting at 8:15AM for approximately one hour. If anyone is interested in a second session at 9:30AM, please contact UFIT as they would be happy to put another one on.

For those who want to continue attending the bootcamps, from this Saturday you will need to register at bootcamps@ufit.com.sg . UFIT are offering Academy members a special price of $99 for the first month – or 10% off their usual package prices. Once you make payment you can also join any of UFIT’s 80 weekly bootcamps held in 12 locations all over Singapore. Details of UFIT’s pricing structure can be found UFIT PRICING.

The bootcamps will be held on the mini pitch just next to the clubhouse (where the older age groups hold their warm up sessions).
