Wednesday February 28 TRAINING SCHEDULE: As we have teams in different age groups and competitions, we have a varied training schedule: - Wednesday 28 February Minis U6, U7, U8 and U9 train at 5pm to 5.45pm at Narrabeen Sports High No 2 Field;Wednesday 28 February Girls Sevens train a Narrabeen Sports High No 2 field from 5.30pm to 6.30pm;Thursday 1 March Northern Beaches Rats U18s train with Warringah Colts at Narrabeen Sports High No 2 Field from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Another terrible week with disloyalty and poaching of our players and coaches, but it happens every year and every year we bounce back. I remember two years ago a very gifted boy with an over-enthusiastic dad decided that the grass was greener at Newport so they moved clubs in 2016, and surprise surprise the boy did not play rugby in 2017 because "he did not enjoy it anymore".
In contrast, we have another six new players who have not played rugby before coming to our club, confirming our statement to remain and grow organically. We do not need to poach players and coaches.
Thanks to Stacey Mitchell's great work we are now topping all the social media on the Northern Beaches and we have articles about to appear in various magazines.
This will be a huge season for the Girls Sevens, so we need to get more younger girls playing Sevens. Coach Melinda Bailey U7 is working on having a full team of girls this year, while Coach Mike Leslie U6 our local firman, is working hard on a mixed team.
