VF Rugby U8 (3 Dec)

Dear All,

Quick one this week.

  • Sandy Bay tournament: Well done everyone!  Brilliant tournament and great standard throughout.  I was very impressed with the rugby that I saw and the kids should be proud
  • Homework:  thanks so much for passing with your kids and making sure they are pushing and pointing.  Please keep it up
  • Training:
    • Location: FORT
    • Time: 10:00am-11:30am
    • Remember: HKID, water, gumshields and sunscreen (just in case)
  • Tournament:  We do NOT have a tournament on  17 Dec.
    • Ignore the schedule Keir sent out the Flying Kukris is a contact tournament we are likely to be at the Fort.
  • Valley Tournament 14 Jan: volunteers
    • Most of you should know the drill.  We need volunteers to set up, tidy up, act as pitch marshals, man info points and more
      • You can do 1 or all of the above
    • If we don't get enough I will make it uncomfortable for you and me

 

  • On the plus side
    • You get priority for sevens tickets
    • You will get free coffee and beer and maybe pizza
    • You will be appreciated

U8s Rugby at HKU Sandy Bay Festival this Sunday 26th

Dear Parents,

All teams are playing on Sunday at the HKU Sandy Bay tournament at Stanley Ho sports ground, Pok Fu Lam 

As before if you can’t make it please reply and let us know so we can plan accordingly.

 

Bring:  Water, Gum-shield – you will not be able to play without this!

 

Schedule :

  • Please check the schedule below (and attached) for your match times.  Match times are in bold for each team.
  • Please arrive at least 15-20 minutes before the time of the first game so the coaches can get the players organized and prepared.
  • If you are not sure of your child’s team, the team-lists are below and also in the attachment.

 

Getting there :

  • Pitch maps in the attached program. Our pitches are the first set of pitches to the right after coming in the gate.
  • There will not be buses laid on given the tournament is on-island.
  • 3 hours complimentary parking at Cyberport for participants with rugby jerseys and there are free shuttle buses from Cyberport every 15mins.

 

Behaviour

  • Please remember to be positive in supporting the VF teams and your kids, and please always respect the referees no matter what your opinion may be of their performance! They are doing their best and respect for the ref and the opposition is an important lesson for the kids .

 

See you all on Sunday!  

Steve/Matt

Rugby VF U8 (12 Nov): time amendment

Dear All,

Well done everyone for such a great effort at the Tigers Tournament.  All the teams performed brilliantly having had rather limited training time.  I hope that all the kids (and parents) enjoyed themselves.  Both Steve and myself were very impressed with the quality of rugby from all the teams. 

Training (slight amendments):

  • Location: St Stephens (near posts)
  • Time: 9:15-10:30am (a bit later than normal). Please get there on time.
  • Trophies: it has been a number of weeks but please make sure you bring your trophies back
  • Remember: gum-shields, water, sunscreen
  • No parking and no dogs
 
Next tournament:
  • Sandy bay in 3 weeks
  • Only 2 training sessions between now and then.  Please try to make them

Best

U8s - Tigerfest tournament this Sunday 5 Nov

Dear Parents,

All teams are playing at the Tigerfest tournament at Kings Park, Kowloon.  

As before if you can’t make it please reply and let us know so we can plan accordingly.

 

Bring:  Water, Gum-shield – you will not be able to play without this!

 

Schedule :

  • Please check the schedule below (and attached) for your match times. 
  • Please arrive at least 15-20 minutes before the time of the first game so the coaches can get the players organized and prepared.
  • If you are not sure of your child’s team, the team-lists are below and also in the attachment.
  • For those using the app: Please note that some of the teams have 1 or 2 games using a different team number (eg Pythons have 3 games as VF 3, and 1 as VF9. ) This is because we have engineered the schedule so the girls teams will have a couple of games each against the girls teams from HKU and FC.
  • It is easiest if you rely on the schedule on this email.

 

Getting there :

  • ·         Google map here
  • ·         Nearest MTR is Jordan, then a 10 min walk
  • ·         If you’re getting a cab, please be dropped off on Wylie Road – do NOT drive up Wylie Path
  • ·         No parking available.
  • ·         Keir will send details of early buses that the club will be putting on from the Southside. These will NOT run all day so won’t be much use if arriving for U8s

 

Mini rugby app:

See you all on Sunday!

Rugby VF U8 (10 Sept)
 
Dear U8 parents,
 
Great start to the season.  We are very impressed with all the kids and how quickly we were able to get going this year.
 
Please find below this weeks notices:
 
Kit:
  • Volunteers: thanks to the three people that put their hand up (unfortunately only 1 can do it this week so we need 1 or 2 more volunteers).  Please put your hand up or I will send a coach and or parent to do this on the day. 
  • Please see Keir's email on process
    • Please get your child with us and then go to collect it during training
  • Please treat the kit volunteers well and with respect as they are helping us all.
Training:
  • Date: Sunday 10 September
  • Time: 8:30am - 9:30am
  • Location: St Stephens (far right side of pitch)
  • Things to remember:
    • Please get there on time
    • Prior to 8:30am we need to keep the noise down as the teachers live by the pitch and we don't want to lose the right to play there
    • No parking at St Stephens
    • No dogs, no smoking and no litter
    • General items: sun block, water, gum shields
 
Teams:
  • Returning kids: same teams as last year 
  • New kids: come find Steve or Myself and we will get you allocated
  • New teams next week
 
 
Other (from our chairman):
  • Player Welfare Evening – See the attached invitation. It’s open to all parents, coaches and all interested parties. It’s an incredibly important subject so please attend if you can/want.
  • Open day/Recruitment -  We will be holding an open day on September 24th at SS (for girls) and Fort (for boys) – details to follow but we really want to recruit more players at all age groups. Please get your daughter or son to bring a friend for the morning. Obviously we have our player referral scheme but we will also have some prizes on the day.
  • Kit distribution – Can I suggest that you DO NOT change your child into their new kit during practice. Leave it until after practice or when you get home. We have limited time for practice and changing kids mid-way through can be disruptive for all. We have over 650 kids receiving kit on Sunday so it’s inevitable that some kids who need to change a size. IF this is the case please wait until next week and we will try to assist at that point.
  • Charity collection - We will be collecting old kit and boots ON THE 17TH AND 24TH September. It’s a perfect time to give last year’s kit to charity (Hugo Mahe – that also means the kit from two years ago!!).

VF: Rugby registration
 
Dear All,
 

You will have received multiple emails by now regarding registration and kit but we have been asked to reach out as well.


Registration:

  • We will cut off the number of kids again in our year (U8) if we get as many as we did last year.
  • To that end I would strongly recommend registering ASAP to avoid disappointment
  • You need to go to the the following website and fill in the form
 
Kit (please see attachments):
  • go to Escapade Sports in the Pulse in Repulse Bay and get the kids sized up.  We are the black kit and for the fashion forward amongst you the actual design is being arranged now this is just to check sizes.  
  • this needs to be done by 25th June and you need to take your child
  • Furthermore unless your kid is seriously large please do not pick the kit that is sized 9-10 because it is a completely different fit.
 
Coaching:
  • we had a strong coaching contingent last year but we are in need of more coaches for the girls
  • anyone interested at all please put your hand up and remember no past experience required
  • coach the coaches course will be in August where we detail the drills etc.
 
Summer:
  • I know many of you will be off to far flung places but please take a rugby ball and make sure that you pass pass pass with your child.
  • It will get them off your phone and be a massive help for us next year
 
Any questions comments please feel free to reach out.

Cheers
 
MM / SG
