A huge Thanks to all coaches,parents and players who helped to make last Saturday in Coonagh such a huge success. From 11.00am to 5.00 pm Coonagh was buzzing there must have been 6/700 people out there, all were fed and watered and went home happy. Well done to all.
Thought For The Week
Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is now only once. Go forth to meet the future without fear and with a brave heart.
Boots – Blades.
Note: We (Underage) at Shannon RFC are putting into place a complete ban on boots with blades. The injury to a young u15 player early this season at the club has focused the mind on the horrific injury he had to suffer. He has had a long period of recovery and we want to make sure that no other player suffers a similar injury. It is important that parents are advised at this point as lots of kids will be looking to get new boots for Christmas. When checking boots, Referees will be paying particular attention to ‘blades’ and if they are in any way damaged/rough then they will not allow them.
Please keep in mind for Birthdays and special occasions we have a great selection of Shannon RFC clubware available from the club shop.
Now in Stock:
Windbreakers, Club Gearbags and small size club jerseys and shorts.
The shop is open in Coonagh every Sunday from 10am to 12pm.
NOTE from Chairman of Underage to Coaches,Parents,Members,Players
I have been in the position of Chairman of underage at Shannon RFC for just over a year and in that year we have witnessed an All Ireland, Munster & North Munster wins in various age groups, 8 trophies were won by Shannon underage last season a fantastic achievement and a big thanks must go out to all the coaches.
But all that was in the past and we must always look forward, we must endeavour to improve all the time and that's where all you come in.
We want submissions from anyone who is interested in underage Rugby at Shannon RFC . We want your ideas and proposals on how we can improve everything from coaching to admin from social to finance, everything is on the table. We will produce a document outlining your ideas and proposals.
PLEASE CONTRIBUTE AS WE CAN ONLY GO FOREWORD WITH NEW THINKING AND FRESH IDEAS
Yours in Rugby
