Junior & Youth Rugby – Sunday 27 Sept

  • Hi Mums and Dads

    (Basic Low Down Up Front) BLUF:  ·

    Hope everyone enjoyed their time with Kinross!

    Everyone is at home this week, but remember that we will start at 1100hrs and train till 1230 to give you plenty of time to grab a burger and pint for the mums/dads or juice for the kids and settle down to watch the Scotland v USA match on the big screen!

    Can the Rams (see below – Tigers (P1 and P2) as well as the P4s and P6s) please bring some home baking and help out with the teas and coffees.

    We will also welcome the S1s and S2s from Alva Academy to training on Sunday as part of our ever closer integration with the Academy’s School fo Rugby.

    Great Tilly Bake Off!!!  Thanks to everyone who has volunteered with teas, coffees and fantastic home baking. As we have no visitors this week, could we split the mums and dads into two ‘Refreshments Teams’ – the ‘Rams’ will be the Tigers (P1 and P2) as well as the P4s and P6s; while the ‘Castles’ will be the P3s, P5s, P7s and S1/s2s.  At the end of the season, we will vote which team has produced the best refreshments and see who will win the Great Tilly Bake Off!  Could I please ask the Rams to volunteer for this weekend and bring along some home baking and help with the teas and coffees?  To date the money generated has bought the first aid kits and will have new trophies for each age group by the time we come back from October break.

    An alternative to rugby?  While we love to see girls and boys playing rugby, Molly Owen has asked if she can do some arts and crafts activities in the clubhouse while her brother is getting mucky and cold outside. This Sunday, Molly would like to invite any non-rugby playing child into the warmth of the Clubhouse to have some fun being arty and crafty!

    October Rugby Camps.   Following on the success of the Summer Rugby Camps, JP and Niall will run mini-rugby camps for P4 to S2 during the October half-term breaks, but sadly the Clacks/Dollar holidays don’t coincide.  So 13-14 Oct 15, JP and Niall will hold a Clacks October Camp; and 20-21 Oct 15, they will hold a Dollar October Camp.  The days will be focused on developing the Key National Themes and personal development.  Each day will run from 0900 to 1200 and cost £10 per day, please email if you want to come along!

    Rugby Tops.  Please email with your request for rugby shirts by age group to give us an idea of numbers (eg: 1x P3 shirt); we will then have sample shirts for you to size up on the 27th September home training for you to confirm the exact order.  The company will then attempt to turn the order round as soon as possible.

    Dates for your diaries:


    Sunday 4th – P1-3 home training; P4-P7 away to McLaren (Callander) with an 1100 kick off.

    Sunday 11th – Lie in and rest!!!

    Tuesday 13th and Wednesday 14th – October rugby camp for P4-S2

    Sunday 18th – Everyone is at home training!  Castles to be on the refreshments please!  The Clubhouse will be open for the Quarter Finals of the Rugby World Cup from 1600.

    Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21th – October rugby camp for P4-S2

    Saturday 31st – A huge day for the Club – both 1st and 2nd XVs are at home, the Rugby World Cup Final will be on the Big Screen; and we will have our infamous Halloween Party late on into the evening!!

    Sadly, I will miss you all on Sunday as I will be down in Leeds cheering on Canada and Scotland!!
