Parents - we have just a few parents signed up to help this Saturday for our last home game, please sign up at our sign-up sheet or let us know how you can contribute at firstname.lastname@example.org
For U13, U11 and U9 players the next jamboree will be Sunday, April 27th in SeaTac at Pat Ryan Field. More details to come.
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.

Sunday, March 23rd (U13, U11 and U9)
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM Jamboree, hosted by Seattle
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.
