Newsletter – Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May 2017 – Week 5


No training this Saturday for the U5 through to the U9 as they are taking part in the TRC Junior Cup. Your coaches will be sending more information, if they haven’t already, about the Tournament this weekend.

There is also no training for the U11 who playing in a JRCS game later in the afternoon.



Most the children have now picked up their training tops. I will be bringing down a few tops on Saturday morning from 9:00AM for those who still have not collected theirs. Please drop me a note to let me know you’re coming to get your top, and don’t forget to come by the clubhouse to pick it up.

On-line Store

Our new online store is almost up and ready. We are hoping to able to release it soon and will send a separate email out with a link to the store as soon as it is ready.


Don’t miss the final Sunwolves game in Singapore, at the National Stadium this Saturday 20th May. The Sunwolves will be playing the Sharks, and as an added extra, our U11 will be taking part in the half time games!


A last reminder that training fees for Term2 are now due, and that late payment charges for any unpaid fees will be applied from Friday 19th May 2017.

If you are unsure whether you have paid your fees or not, please go to your child’s TeamSnap profile and select the Payments tab. The fees due for your child/children for this term will be noted there.

Please note that on your TeamSnap “home page”, it will show that you have no fees due for “Registration” – you paid this when your child first joined the Academy. You need to select your child’s profile, and then the Payments tab, to find this term’s Training Fees.


We have introduced a late payment charge. A 10% charge will be added to all unpaid fees after the 4th week of term – for this term, the late fee will come into effect on Friday 19th May 2017.


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. The link to PayPal only shows on the web version of TeamSnap, and unfortunately does not work on the mobile app.

Alternatively, you can also pay by bank transfer:

Details for a bank transfer are as follows:

Account Name: The Rugby Academy Ltd

Account No: 0339049654

Bank Name: DBS

Branch Code: 033

Swift Code: DBSSSGSG

Please reference your child’s name and age group on the payment.


Please can we remind parent to avoid parking at the car park at Dempsey, especially during the early morning sessions. In particular, please avoid parking on the hill coming into Dempsey, as this leaves space for only one car to pass and causes bottlenecks both coming in and out of Dempsey.

More parking can be found behind Ben and Jerrys at Dempsey Hill.
