Huns Youth Rugby First Meet Up says
Few of us put together a tentative plan for a youth league late this fall. Everything below is subject to discussion. We want your input!

- Coach's meeting: Sunday, September 20th at 11 am, Nixon Lane. ALL POTENTIAL COACHES AND PARENTS ARE WELCOME. Caleb agreed to cook food. Call it a rugby Brunch. We will discuss all aspects of our plan, so please try to make it. RSVP by replying to this email or on Facebook.

- Season (tentative): Saturday mornings ONLY. Start Nov. 7th. 5-6 weeks. (Nov. 7, 14, 21, Dec. 5, 12, 19 (if we go 6 weeks)) Maybe 5 weeks with 19th as a make up weekend. All is on the table.

- 45-60 minutes of practice followed by a game or games. Start no earlier than 9:30. Done by 11:30.

- The ratio of practice to games will slowly increase during the 5-6 week period culminating in a mini tournament the last week.

- Goal is at least 4 U10 and 4 U12-13, but this is all subject to who shows up on September 20th. Love to have more and/or different age groups.

- Touch or flag rugby. Not Tackle.

- We will use orange paint and portable practice goals to divide Nixon into 4 (or more) youth fields depending on the interest we get. Huns will provide kicking posts and balls.

- Cost will be CIPP plus a very nominal amount (say $10). CIPP is required. My experience is a small fee induces commitment, but collection will be at the coach's discretion and can be waived.

- Goal is positive coaching experience and we need coaches. Coaches will help recruit teams. Seven on the field so 7-10/team. Ideally no more than 1-3 Hun's children/team and rest recruited from friends.

Help us start this up. Be there September 20th!

Cheers, Mitch Pryor
