Las Vegas Invitational Tournament Touring Team - March 1-4, 2018

Parent Info

Final Parents Meeting: 9:30 am
Fox Hollow Dome

Parents:  the second payment for the LVI Tour was due Saturday  10th, the final payment has to done by Feb 22nd. Sportengine (our webpage hosts) has made it possible to collect the fees. This allows credit cards to be used and partial payments to be made. There are fees that are  accessed, so if you are not using checks or cash there will be small processing fee added, but convenience (and miles)  are the upside.

Rugby Knowledge Question:

1)  On a kick off the ball does not cross the 10 meter line, the attacking team has 2 options. What are they?
2)  A ball gets kicked out, the team who did not kick the ball recovers it before anyone else touches it, they want to to throw the ball in quickly. The throw in must take place where?  What must happen to the ball? and how many people does it require?
3) What are the 3 calls that the refs makes before a scrum occurs?
