THE SINGAPORE LIFE FESTIVAL OF NATIONS 2019
The Singapore Life Festival of Nations is junior rugby 7 or 10 a-side fun competition, will be held on Saturday 30th November. It is organised by JRCS and hosted by Tanglin Rugby Club at Turf City. It is a chance for players from all clubs and schools to come together and celebrate another successful year.
The Festival is open to boys from year of birth 2002 to 20114, and girls from 2001 to 2014. All players are selected to play for 1 of 12 national teams (AUS, ENG, FIJ, FRA, IRE, JAP, NZ, SGP, SCO, SAF, USA, WAL) in an age group specific competition.
There are no guarantees on which team you’ll end up with, as part of the fun is not knowing until you get there on the day and meet your new team-mates. BUT, the earlier you register the more chance you’ll be with one of the 3 teams you select as part of this registration process.
The entry fee is $45, which buys you a custom made ‘national’ team shirt to keep, a great day playing with new friends, and a chance to round out the rugby year in style!
This event has been a great success in the last few years and we look forward to more of the same this year. Please do sign up early at the registration link above. As you do so, parents, please consider checking the box to volunteer as a national coach.
