Parent Volunteers Needed - After Match Food

Hi Parents,

With one last home match vs. Chuckanut this Saturday we need your help. Please sign up below.

An important part of the Rugby spirit is to get together with the other team after the match and share a small snack/meal and talk about outstanding players and events of the game. In order to host each team at our home games we need parent support. These meals are more like a snack: sandwiches, chips, water etc. You can expect to provide for about 40 players per match. We are looking for 2-5 parents to sign-up for each game, you can find guidelines and the sign up sheet below. If every parent helps with one match during the season we should be well covered here.

Dear U13 Parents,

The U19 Seattle Boys are playing a team from Canada Wednesday night at 5:15. The U13s will start practice as usual at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday. I would like the U13 players to watch the game as a team and will have them assembled on the south sideline. Parents can pick up their players at 6:00 p.m., or at the end of the game, which will be about 6:30.   

Coach George

Seattle Vikings vs. Earl Marriott Rugby (BC), March 26th

Hi all,
We have added an additional match for our U19 players next week against Earl Marriot from British Columbia, Canada. The school is a perennial BC powerhouse and Fraser Valley league champion and should be a great test for the boys.

The game will be held during our typical practice time with a planned kickoff about 5 PM. We may have to move some of the other teams around the fields a bit, but practice will continue as scheduled for our other age groups. Should be a great match to watch for the whole club.

We will need to host our Canadian friends afterwards and we will add them to the sign up sheet. Parents your help woudl be appreciated.

Lost and Found Items

Hello Parents,

Coach Peppin is gathering quite a supply of extra warmup pants, shirts, vikings jackets, hoodies that U9-U15 players have left behind.   I will have all articles at practice Monday 03-17 laid out on the fence after practice.   Encourage your young ones to look for their missing gear.

U19/U17 Mandatory Sat. Practice

We will be convening for a special, mandatory training session on Saturday, March 15 at Magnuson Park from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  We are nearing the teeth of the first half of our schedule, with games against Budd Bay on March 22, Earl Marriott Secondary School (BC) on March 26 and Chuckanut on March 29. As such it is very critical that we use every opportunity to improve our execution as a team and refine our attack pattern and defensive structure. 

To do that, we need all players attending training sessions.

Be at the field by 9:45 a.m. and we will finish exactly at 11:30 so that players can get to other Saturday commitments.  Also, if you have free time, Seattle/OPSB will be playing against Bayside (BC) at 11:30 a.m. so that will be a good opportunity to watch top NW rugby.
