Girls Rugby 2018

Season 2018 is almost upon is with the prospect of another year of great girls rugby!  Forest is keen to build on our past years successes as we ride the enormous wave that is rugby 7s for girls.  In particular, this year is our 60th year as a club so we are extra keen to promote and excel in this area.

Teams

In 2017 we had teams in U12s/U14s/U16s with number steadily growing throughout the year.  Our target is to fill teams in four age groups with U18s as well.  We only need roughly 9 girls to make a sustainable team.

  • U12s – girls turning 11 or 12 in 2018
  • U14s – girls turning 13 or 14 in 2018
  • U16s – girls turning 15 or 16 in 2018
  • U18s – girls turning 17 or 18 in 2018

Coaches/Managers

We were very fortunate to have Koby Forrest last year help us with coaching however he is now going to play rugby so can not return in 2018.  Ali Duncan and myself are back but with the ever growing number of teams, we are keen to have other join in the fun.  If you are interested in being a coach or manager this year, please let me know.  It is a very fun and rewarding experience.  It has its stresses on game day but you will be well supported and we’ll even organize specific training courses to assist you with the role.

2018 Season

Two full rounds will be held over school term 1 and 2 in 2018 with games held at various locations around Sydney.  All our Forest teams will typically be at the same location but may not all kick off at the same time.  At each round all teams will play 2 x 14 minute games as a minimum.  Special gala days will be organized for school term 3 as well.  Registration is all done online now.  The link should be setup up shortly.  Please check back here in the near future.

Training & First Game

We will continue to train on Monday nights between 6pm and 7pm up at the War Memorial Playing Fields (the home of Forest Rugby) up at Forestville.  Training will commence from Monday the 22nd of January 2018.  The first round is scheduled for Saturday the 17th of February.  Game times will be from 5pm onwards.

Recruitment

We always welcome new players and anyone that just wants to come and see what it is all about.  If you know someone who wants to come  please invite them to any of our training sessions on Monday nights.  If you have any questions about Girls Rugby 7s at Forest please don’t hesitate to contact me directly either by email (girlsrugby@forestrugby.com.au) or via my mobile (0437 407 392).  Looking forward to celebrating another great season in the year that the club that has now turned 60 years old.
