Tigerfest this week!

Dear Parents and Coaches,

 We have done the drills, we have practiced the matches……..and now its FESTIVAL TIME!!! 

     I have attached the map of King’s Park, we are on Pitch 1 and we will try to congregate near the middle of the stadium end….but we are many and so look for the red shirts

     I have attached the schedule of play for each of the team….Everyone pls note the games for VF8

     Referees….pls note the games you are required to support, PLS work with your head coach if you cannot make that time for a replacement….

     There are hopefully some buses organized to take us to KP as we have an early start…..I will know more on Thursday….watch this space

     All kiddies in their full club outfit (this seasons only) and with mouth guards….

  I am sadly going to be away….Monty has very kindly volunteered to collect the medals for distribution…Head Coaches pls look for Monty for the same.

Have a great time everyone, they are going to do really well.

 

Miss everyone already…..

 Cheers

Warren

U7s this week: 8:30AM start at St Stephens

Dear Parents,

After a week’s hiatus we are back on and back at St Stephen’s at 8:30AM.

Pls bring plenty of water and sun screen……this summer is more persistent than a persevering parrot practicing “Polly” in Pidgin.

In the meantime……Let’s take those rugby balls to the beach this half term to improve handling and passing!

Right…..see you then.

Valley Fort U7

Dear Parents,

Hope you are all having a fabulous summer….a few more weeks and the rugby season will begin.  There will be more communication on that soon.

This message is about PARENT COACHING.  As most of you know, the mini’s relies on the time and investment of the mums and dads volunteering to coach the kids….and I strongly encourage you to take part….it is great fun, the kids love having their parents on the pitch, giving them extra confidence, especially if this is their first year.  There is no prior experience in even playing rugby needed.  If you could let me know if you “currently” plan to coach pls let me know and for those of you I have not met, just a quick brief on level of experience if any….e.g. “none and never picked up a ball”…..to “this is my 5th child I am coaching through Valley Fort”  so that we can get the right mix of experience in each team.

Furthermore, for ALL coaches that can make it, we will organize a “Coach the Coach” session on Aug 27th to learn some new moves and meet each other…pls come and join us, we need new coaches and this would be a great time to meet the more experienced ones.  Pls include in your mail whether you think you can make it so we plan for the numbers.

For those wonderful mums and dads that put in the time last year and are returning as coaches, pls also let me know as I will be doing the teams soon.

Look forward to seeing everyone very soon.

Cheers

Warren Lockner
