Spring/Summer Season

Notice:

The Spring/Summer Season:
Monday May 6th till July 12.

Its "Rugby Time",

The early spring before the surprise snow fall threw some planning things out of kilter but we are back on track again.

We have finally been cleared for the fields in Eagle River and South Anchorage. The ASD  "field hold",  that tipped us into turmoil, which was supposed in place till June 1, has been lifted. We got the go ahead paperwork last Friday. The Park Strip, based on the shared use use agreement with Youth Rugby and the Muni, means we have the fields we need to start the summer season.

 
High school/Middle School Boys and Girls:
This year our goal is to play 15 a-side-rugby with High school and Middle school players. Therefore because of numbers and the need for specific coaches our plans are to have one central location for practice. Practices for all players over 12 years of age, that are in Middle school or High School, will be at the Delaney Park Strip, on Tuesdays and Wednesday night @ 7:30pm till 9:00pm. Boys and Girls will practice at the same time but practice separately except for fitness training.
 
The goal this year is to get a 22-25 man squad to the Great Northwest Challenge in Idaho at the end of June. This year, at this time, we except to only take a Boys High School team. That is unless every current player recruits another player and if our numbers are good, our fitness strong  and performance growing in the girls division and U14 divisions, than we can look at taking other teams. (Our girls did so well in the Orlando 7's that we would be thrilled to try and assemble a team)
 
We will have mixed player teams, that means that Eagle River players will play with South and Central based on the individual players position. The 15's game means players have more specific roles within the game and that requires specific training. That does not mean boys/girls mixed teams or MS/HS mixed teams. There will be a non-contact option for MS/HS age group for those new players.
 
U6/U9/U12:
These games are all non-contact Touch/Flag/Rippa games.

We will have three locations for these age groups, Eagle River @ Alpenglow Elementary School, Delaney Park Strip, 10th/M, and South at Goldenview Middle School. We have not been able to set up a Mountainview @ Davis program at this time.
 
Practice will be at 6-7pm on Mondays and Wednesday at the South and Central Location. (the 7:00pm finish will allow coaches and Interns to get to the Park Strip for HS/MS practice.
 
Practice will be at 6:30-7:30 pm on Mondays and Wednesday at the Eagle River Location.
 
We still do need assistant coaches at these locations, so please if you have coached these age groups before in any sport, or even if you haven't and you want to try, email me immediately to let me know. I have plenty of coaching resources available for you. You must be USARugby  level 100 certified. The certification is not complicated but includes the safe sport requirement. (check the Web page,
 
The Spring/Summer Season: Monday May 6th till July 12.

Registration will need to be done as soon as  possible. The registration will still be done through SportsEngine until we get a new website set up and USARugby on the same page.

Please register online, the first week we can let people try rugby to see if it is a good fit but new USARugby rules and Insurance requirements mean that all players are required to be registered.
