Newsletter – Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th June 2023 – Week 8

For more updates on the rugby club, join us on our Facebook and Instagram sites where you can find the latest news, updates and fun!


The Junior Rugby Clubs Singapore League ran from February to June and included most of the local clubs. With 50 squads taking part across all clubs and age groups, the SCC Rugby Academy fielded 9 teams. The Academy had our most successful season to date with 6 Grand Final wins: last weekend both U11 teams – the SCC Lions and the SCC Tigers – won their respective tournaments, and the SCC U12 won their grand final.

Last weekend the Academy topped up our achievements with the SCC Lions taking the U10A tournament, and the SCC U13 and SCC U15 squads taking their championships.

Fantastic performances by all involved – congratulations to players, coaches and parents!


This Saturday the Academy are hosting the first of this year’s JRCS Minis Tournaments at Dempsey. This weekend the tournament will be held for the U8 and U9, from 12:30PM to 3:00PM on both the rugby and the soccer pitches.

Good luck to everyone!

With the current hot and humid weather, it’s very easy to become dehydrated. This is particularly so for the young, and those partaking in outdoor activities – such as rugby and touch!

Dehydration affects our brain’s ability to regulate body temperature, and by the time we experience actual thirst, our brains are already partially dehydrated.

Please make sure your children hydrate well before they come down to training, ensure that they have a full water bottle with them, and encourage them to take sips regularly even if they don’t feel thirsty. If they run out of water, there is water pitch side where they can refill their bottles.

If your team is taking part in games or tournaments, we would kindly ask that you ensure that your child is wearing their full and up-to-date kit. They must wear the latest playing jersey/touch tops which have our sponsors latest logos on them. Please keep the old tops with the old logos just for training.

We need to honour our sponsors contribution and support by wearing the tops that they have sponsored for us.
