Bryncoch @ Home & TEAMER use

Training 5.30pm @ Park & Bryncoch RFC @ Bishopston 10am for 10.30KO (early for Mother's Day).

With the end of the season around the corner we will be looking to enter some festivals/tournaments rather than just one off games against other clubs. The first of these will possibly take place (depending on numbers interested) at 9.30am South Gower RFC on SATURDAY 9th April and then also the day after on SUNDAY 10th April at Dunvant RFC. Both clubs will also be hosting a touring team from Farnham who we are also invited to play against.

To assist in the pre-organisation of these festivals can you please indicate using TEAMER if you are available for either or both events. Rather than just rely on TEAMER to provide information on time/place, could you please also play your part and either DECLINE or ACCEPT so that I can respond in good time for hosts to source alternative teams if we don't have the numbers interested (i.e. at least a week in advance).

Please don't feel at all pressured to attend either or both matches (if anything it would assist if we could split the squad over the 2 days) - but if I know who can / can't attend in advance it would help tremendously. To this end you will have received 2 TEAMER messages for both these events - if you could respond a.s.a.p. (And by this Sunday 2nd April at the latest) then I'd be very grateful.

Sunday 13/03/11 10am @ Bishopston

An early kick off this Sunday as we aim to host both Penlan RFC at 10am and Fall Bay RFC straight after at 10.45am, with hot dogs to follow at Mumbles Rugby Club.

It's back to the park for an introduction to contact

Training @ Underhill Park 5.30pm 11/03/11.

It is our intention to begin to slowly introduce tackling to the Vikings. We want to take this opportunity to assure you that safety at this transition point is paramount. Preparation to the tackle will follow a step by step process that will involve progressive practices and drills before any contact game is played.

At this point you may wish to consider protective equipment (Mouth Guard / Head Guard/ body armour etc) but please note that the use of protective equipment is a personal choice and not a requirement. Please ensure you take professional advice (e.g. dentist) on this equipment when purchasing and making sure that they fit adequately. Please note that ill fitting equipment may do more harm than good (particularly ill fitting mouth guards).

If you have any questions, or you consider that attending an informal meeting at the club with all parents one evening to discuss the progression to contact might be of benefit, then please feel free to contact any of the coaching team.

As ever, the continued assistance from volunteers is essential to the success of teams and clubs such as the Mumbles RFC Vikings. To this end, if you would like to consider attending any official WRU coaching or refereeing courses over the summer to progress your understanding, qualifications and involvement in the running of the team (funded by the club), then please speak to any of the coaching team.
