Please see the schedule below to check when each age group is playing.

The finals of the tournament will be held on Sunday 5th May, with finals being played either at the Kallang Football Hub or for a few lucky teams, at the National Stadium during the HSBC Singapore 7s tournament.

WHEELCHAIR RUGBY GRAND FINAL

Many thanks to everyone for their generous contributions baking and eating at our two bake sales last term. We raised $2,100 which will be used to buy a set of spare wheels. And if you would like to see those wheels in use, come and watch the Wheelchair Rugby Grand Final on Wednesday 1st May at North London Collegiate School, Depot Road!

Get ready for the most epic showdown of the season! The stage is set for the Finals match of the WRAS-Jaade League 2024 in wheelchair rugby!

It’s a long-awaited clash between two rivals: the Hornets and the Tigers. Catch the action as both teams gear up to battle it out for ultimate glory on the court!

Who will emerge victorious and claim the championship title?

Don’t miss out on the action – admission is free!

IMPORTANT – MICROSPORIDIA HEALTH ADVISORY

With the recent very wet and muddy conditions, we would like to remind parents, and players, to ensure they wash their faces with water after playing in muddy conditions. 

Microsporidia are spore-forming single-cell intracellular parasites. Since the early 2000s, microsporidia keratoconjunctivitis has been increasingly reported in Singapore, mostly after eye contact with wet soil or mud during outdoor activities. The main presenting signs and symptoms are eye redness, pain/foreign body sensation, photosensitivity and blurred vision.

All players who have been in contact with soil or mud should maintain good personal hygiene. We would encourage the children to bring extra water to wash their faces if they come into contact with mud, and to use different towels for the face and body immediately after training. If your child will use them, you may wish to keep eye drops in your children’s bag so they can apply them after training. 

Do seek early medical consultation (e.g. an eye specialist) should your child experience symptoms such as itchy and painful red eyes with discharge occurring from two days up to three weeks after being in contact with soil or mud.

KIT

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 (the two logos on the left). Please keep the old tops with the old logos just for training (for clarity, the old logos have the lighter blue in them).

We need to honour our sponsors contribution and support by wearing the tops that they have sponsored for us.
