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 Cup tournament, TRC Junior Tournament, TRC Touch tournament and the Centaurs International Mini & Youth Rugby 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.

THE FRY GROUP WEBINAR: WHAT IS A TRUST AND WHEN SHOULD I USE ONE?
Trusts are one of the single most powerful estate and financial planning tools, but they are also one of the least well understood. With a reputation of being favoured by the monied elite, many are unaware of the value a trust can have when it comes to managing your assets.
In this webinar, our panel of in-house experts aim to dispel the ambiguities surrounding trusts and provide you with a concise understanding of what, why and when.
What can I learn from this webinar?
- The benefits of using a trust
- Live examples of where a trust has been beneficial
- An understanding of why people use a trust
- Alternatives to using a trust
There will also be time for Q&A and we encourage you to pre-submit any questions you’d like explored by our panel.
Please register online to receive the webinar link.
Wednesday 31 August 2022:
Please feel free to forward this invitation to friends, colleagues or family members if you feel it would be of interest to them. We look forward to you joining the webinar.
LIGHT SNACKS AT DEMPSEY
Don’t forget that light snacks are now 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 it is CASH ONLY or you can sign on your account if you are a Singapore Cricket Club member.
As rugby and touch get back into the swing of things, with the lifting of the restrictions from the past two years, we are very excited to be taking part in many tournaments and friendly games with our fellow junior clubs. If your team is taking part in games, 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 top that they were given which have our sponsors latest logos on them. Please keep the old tops with the old logos just for training.
Our sponsors have generously stood by us during the past 2 years, and we need to honour their contribution and support by wearing the tops that they have sponsored for us.
With the recent rainy conditions, please make sure you check our Facebook page for the status of training if there is heavy rain, and/or thunder and lightning.
