The U5 to U10 had great fun last weekend at the TRC Junior Cup Tournament. The weather did its best to delay play on Sunday, but that didn’t stop the competition. Congratulations to all the boys and girls who took part!

The mighty U6!


We have another busy day at Dempsey this Saturday 27th May as we are hosting 5 JRCS League games on the rugby pitch. The U10A and U10B teams are playing in their respective semi-finals, and the U11A, U11B and U12 are taking part in their grand finals.


This Saturday U4 training will be held on the Mini Pitches, which are just below the F&B Hut near the main park at SCC Dempsey Playing Fields.

U5 – U15

All training will be on the soccer pitch (next to the rugby pitch) as the JRCS games will be played on the rugby pitch.

U12 and U17

There is no training this weekend for the U12 and U17.

We will be hosting 5 games on the rugby field for the JRCS semi finals:

7:50AM – SCC U10 Tigers v Saints – semi finals

With so many people expected at Dempsey on Saturday, we have put on a bigger BBQ than normal.

With the current hot and humid weather, it’s very easy to become dehydrated. 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.
