Thanks’ for a great turn out last weekend!
Various Tor teams took on the cold and muddy conditions as
well as teams from Crewkerne
The aim was to keep warm get muddy have fun then back to the
club House for Sausage Chips and cake..all in no particular order..An aim I think
all players achieved judging by all the muddy smiley faces! ..And even some on the
coaches! –I managed to see a couple of the age groups and watched some
brilliant play-real teamwork going on out there ..Very proud!
Thank you to all those who brought cakes to the cake sale -it was a record week for kitchen takings- which is a very important fund raising stream for the Minis and Juniors’ ..We are at Home again this week with teams from Chard visiting so more cake please!
BE AT THE CLUB FOR 10AM FOR 10.30AM KICK OFF .
The weather could well be similar as last week so please remember to bring a change of clothes for the players and leave as much mud as possible outside the club house!- Cheers
We had a Minis and Juniors committee meeting last Sunday evening –thanks to all that came it was a really good meeting lots of positive discussion and ideas to get us through the rest of the season and build for the 16/17 season..I will write up the minutes and get the key points out early next week..
One of the main points from the meeting was that we need more volunteers for 16/17 ..a quick round up surmised that we could do with around six more people on the coaching team..Specifically in the following areas..
U5/U6s coach and assistant needed–(Stuart would like to run two groups next season U5s and U6s)
U7S- coach and assistant needed –(Jim will be moving up with existing group of players to U8s he will also be spearheading setting up Girls teams U13 upwards with Josh)
Juniors- U13,U14,U15,U16s- We really want to build on the success of the U15s this season and target all Junior sections for 16/17 for this we need at least two coaches and assistants
As a coach/Assistant you will be part of a great team and part of the RFU family –training courses range from “Rugby Ready” al the way through to Level 1 and Level 2 ..These can be arranged to suit you..The main thing is if you think you would like to give it a go let any of the coaches know and join in! – You will be working closely with existing coaches at all times so no need to worry!
If you don’t fancy running around coaching and would like to help in other ways let us know- not only do the coaches coach on a Sunday they also spend a lot of their time behind the scenes - Kitchen team, fund raising, sponsorship, safeguarding compliance, membership administration. Communications’-social media ,flyers. Liaising with local Schools +RFU. Organising fixtures.. ..washing muddy kits…marking out pitches…cutting grass..
IF INTRESTED IN HELPING AT ALL PLEASE LET US KNOW- firstname.lastname@example.org
Or speak to John,Andrew,Josh or Rob..or ANY of the team
