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.
Registration will need to be done this week. The registration will still be done through SportsEngine until we get the new website set up and USARugby on the same page.
Please register online, this first week we can let a lot of 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.
