Welcome back! We hope that everyone had a restful summer break (winter for our southern hemisphere members), and are all ready to go for our third, and longest, term of rugby and touch! We have a lot to fit in this term – the SCC Rugby Academy tournament, TRC tournament and Clifford Chance Touch tournament for starters.
HAVE YOU LEFT?
If you have left Singapore, or your child is just taking a break from the Academy this term, please don’t forget to drop a note to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can update TeamSnap and the team lists.
TRAINING FEES DUE FOR 3RD TERM 2017
Training fees for Term 3 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 profile, and then the Payments tab, to find this term’s Training Fees.
LATE PAYMENT CHARGES
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 22nd September 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. Please note that the PayPal link can only be found in the web version of TeamSnap, and does not show on the app version.
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.
We do not accept payment of training fees by cheque or cash.
ON-LINE KIT STORE
Our on-line kit store is finally up and running! In stock are training jerseys, socks, rugby shorts, touch shorts, caps and visors. To access the store, please click here – SCC Rugby Academy Kit Store
Over the coming months, we will be expanding the products on offer in the store, such as kit bags, rucksacks, polo shirts, rugby balls and scrum caps.
The on-line store is based in Australia, so shipments will be sent to the Academy and available for pick up at Dempsey at training on Saturday mornings (for rugby), and Sunday mornings (for touch).
Orders in by Sunday midnight will be shipped on Monday for pick up on Saturday.
