Welcome back Rapp Ruggers!
Labor day has passed and we are officially into fifteens season. You should have seen some posts with similar info on our Facebook Group Pages for each individual team, but this is the best way to see what you need to know and do before your boots hit the pitch on gameday.
You can't touch another player until you are CIPPed. Visit https://webpoint.usarugby.org/ to register with our team. PLEASE NOTE: There are TWO RAPPAHANNOCK TEAMS!! Make sure you select the appropriate team for your participation. This must be done ASAP.
Men: RAPPAHANNOCK RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB
Women: RAPPAHANNOCK WOMEN'S RUGBY FOOTBALL CLUB
We also need you to fill out this medical form
Mouthguard, cleats (no metal spikes), Rugby Shorts. Socks are good, spandex shorts are polite, and women you need a sports bra (protect the nipple!)
Now that we are in the heat of the season we need practices to be as productive as possible! No one wants to lose because we couldn't do the right drills to prepare. Let a captain, officer or coach know of any absences so they can plan accordingly. If you have a busy schedule then come late/leave early, but try to get there for something!
4. Pitchero Availability
FOR THE LOVE OF RUGBY please put your availability up on Pitchero. There is a yes, no, and maybe option to please everyone. It's so important because if we can't make the numbers it allows our officers to be proactive in rescheduling instead of scrambling or forfeiting. Seriously. Just Do It.
We like hanging out with the team. We love new friends. Keep an eye on the Pitchero calendar and on Facebook Events for opportunities to participate in team activities. The first Thursday of each month we do a late night happy hour at Spencer Devon Brewing after practice.
