This weekend all the Girls Touch teams are taking part in the TRC Touch Tournament on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th November. This will be TRC’s last tournament at their Turf City home. Good luck girls and have fun!
Turf City will also be hosting the JRCS Festival of Nations tournament at Centaurs Sports park. The girls contact is being played in the evening of Friday 24th November, and the rest of the tournament will be held on Sunday 26th November. We hope that all the children who have signed up for the Festival have a great time!
This Saturday the U6 have a change of venue for their training – they will be holding it on the beach! Enjoy the sun, sea and sand!
CONGRATULATIONS TO JULIAN CAILLOL
Huge congratulations to Jules Caillol (NSW Waratahs U19) who has been selected for the Australia U20 squad!
Jules was a member of the SCC Rugby Academy from 2012 when we first started, to 2019 when he left to go to school in Australia. He couldn’t be missed down on the pitch with his shock of blond hair and his great ball carrying skills, captaining the team to countless wins.
Jules is the third member of the very successful 2004 group to be selected for a national development team, with Orson James and Will Plessis selected for Wales U19. Perhaps one day they’ll play against each other at the WRC!

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.
