There are a few vacancies that still need filling and we're ready to welcome you! I realise we are all busy people but the club needs support from other parents/ guardians.

The coaches are busy checking the equipment and looking at what new or replacement training equipment is required.
We will be going ahead and nominating awards as normal . The Team Managers are moving forward with this and you will hear shortly from your Coaches and Team Managers.
The quiz night will go ahead but only when guidelines and restrictions allow us to. Any ideas for future events please contact us. These events will help raise funds to purchase new shirts for your children.
The AGM will not be going ahead in its' normal format.
The club have been using zoom to meet and talk through the ever changing position of training and game play. If you are interested in attending the AGM please let us know. The link will be advertised on the Coaches WhatsApp group as well.
The club house plans were agreed and now the real fund raising starts. Please support us in the next stage of our adventure. A club house will bring so many positives to your club. If you have any suggestions or know a business that could support the club in raising funds please contact us.
At the beginning of this season there will be a new membership form to sign along with how subs will be paid at the beginning of the season.
This year we are planning on having an example of kit that can be purchased from a web site. A chance for you to see it and see how sizes would work for your son or daughter. It's a great idea for all year round presents. Raging Bull supports local clubs and any items purchased will raise club funds. https://www.ragingbullsportswear.com/product-category/fawley-rfc/
At the beginning of the season please bring your child's shirt along if it needs to be exchanged for a bigger size.
This year we will be working hard to raise funds and purchase new shirts from Raging Bull for the mini's and juniors.
One last thing I would like to remind you of are the activities available for parents to join in and get fit and be part of a group. Something we maybe all looking forward to.
* WALKING RUGBY........
* JOIN THE SENIORS TEAM (there is a 1st and 2nd team so please do not be daunted) they are a friendly bunch.
Thanks for your time in reading this and your continued support. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you next session. I can be contacted by email if you have any questions or concerns.
