We hope that everyone had fun at the SCC Rugby Academy BIPO 7s and Touch Tournament! Over the two weekends we held 455 games for 190 teams – the busiest tournament ever. The Academy put in a great performance, and the following teams came away as Cup Final winners:
A huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped us keep the tournament running smoothly – we couldn’t have done it without you. From the parent volunteers who valiantly monitored the games as pitch marshals during our main tournament, to the boys and girls who took on ball retrieving responsibilities at the SCC7s. We hope you are looking forward to doing it all again next year!

DON’T FORGET YOUR CASH FOR ICE POPS!
Ice Pops are back on sale at the F&B Hut at Dempsey on Saturdays. They are $2 each – CASH ONLY PLEASE. Please bring the exact change if possible, as it only takes one person paying with $50 or $100 for one ice pop to wipe out all our change. Thank you!
With the hot and humid weather, it’s very easy to become dehydrated, especially if you have been on holiday in cooler climates and may not have acclimatized yet. 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.
LIGHT SNACKS AT DEMPSEY
Don’t forget that light snacks are available for sale at the F&B Hut at Dempsey. You will now be able to buy muffins, sandwiches and hot dogs to go with your coffee! Please note that you now pay by PayNow and cash, or you can sign on your account if you are a Singapore Cricket Club member.
Please make sure you check our Facebook page for the status of training if there is heavy rain, and/or thunder and lightning.
