Newsletter – Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd April 2018 – Week 1

Welcome back from the Easter break. We hope you all had a relaxing holiday. With over 150 children taking part in the KL Tigers Tournament in KL this weekend, training will be a bit quiet this weekend.


Training is on for most squads this weekend, despite many being away in KL.

There is no training for the U14 on Saturday.

Please could the U6 squad look out for updates from their coaches as to whether there is training this weekend.

There are some changes in coaches for some squads as a number of coaches are on tour. The U8 and U9 will be training with Coaches Bryan and Su, the U11 will be training with Coach Charlie, and the U12 will be with Coach James. Touch on Sunday will be taken by Coaches Justin and Jesse.


For all those looking to pick up new kit, I’m afraid we are up in KL this weekend. We will be back at training on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May to hand out shirts to new players.


There is no training on the weekend of Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th April as the Dempsey playing fields are unavailable. Training will resume as normal on the 4th and 5th May.

The 28th and 29th April is also the weekend of the Singapore Rugby 7s, so you will still get a chance to enjoy some rugby!

KL TIGERS TOURNAMENT 2018 – 21st and 22nd APRIL

Teams from the U6 through to U16, as well at Girls Touch U13 and Girls Touch U15, will be participating in the KL Tigers Tournament this weekend. The tournament is being held at Epsom College, Malaysia.

For those taking the coach up to KL, the coaches will be leaving from the SCC, Connaught Drive (in the city) on Friday 20th April at 12:00pm. Please do not be late as they need to leave on time to avoid rush hour congestion in KL.

The Academy are staying at the Pullman Lakeside Putrajaya, which is also the venue for the Saturday evening awards dinner.

A full itinerary will be sent to all those attending shortly.


Save the date – Saturday June 9th is the SCC Rugby Academy Pimm’s and Curry social! Watch the sun go down behind MBS on the beautiful SCC Gilmour Room terrace and meet the other parents and the coaches who make the Academy.  Tickets will be on sale after the KL Tigers tournament, from 4th/5th May when normal training resumes. To make payment easier, we will be able to add the cost of tickets to your children’s TeamSnap account.


Training fees for Term 2 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.

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 team, and then the Payments tab, to find this term’s Training Fees.


Please note that 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 18th May 2018.


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. Please note that the PayPal link can only be found in the web version of TeamSnap, and does not show on the app version.

Account Name: The Rugby Academy Ltd

Account No: 0339049654
