If you have left Singapore, or your child is just taking a break from the Academy this term, please don’t forget to drop a note to Sarah at info@sccrugbyacademy.com so we can update TeamSnap and the team lists.

TRAINING FEES DUE FOR 1st TERM 2018

Training fees for Term 1 are now due. To check how much you owe for your child, please go to their TeamSnap profile and select the Payments tab – fees due for this term are indicated there.

We now accept PayPal through the TeamSnap application. Just go to the Payments tab on your child’s profile, and you will find the fee amount due and a link for PayPal if you would like to use this service.
