From the Convenor of Rugby, John McCoy
There was definitely a little bit of Summer in the opening weekend of the Winter Sport Season! Well done to all players and coaches who started the season off very impressively with some high quality trials as well as energetic training sessions in some age groups.
A big thank you to all those parents and friends who assisted in such hot conditions on the canteen – supplying refreshments to players and spectators. It was fantastic to see so much support from so many members of the community in the first week. Thank you!
This week we are expecting to receive a mixture of weather with some hot and cold conditions predicted. All players are asked to please keep an eye on any emails which may be sent out (to student emails) to indicate if trainings will still go ahead or if any age group meetings may take place – should the bad weather hit.
CAS Sevens & Internal Trials
This Saturday (24 March) 15 players in each group will be involved in the CAS Sevens at various CAS venues across Sydney. Venues and playing times are listed below:
- 13s selected team will be playing at St Aloysius’ (College Oval)
- 14s selected team will be playing at Barker College (Baker Oval) from 8:30am to 10:30am
- 15s selected team will be playing at Cranbrook (Horden) from 9am to 12pm
- 16s selected team will be playing at Trinity Grammar School (TGS 1 & TGS 3) from 8am to 10am
- Opens selected team will be playing at Queens Park from 1pm to 3pm
Coaches will have informed players if they have gained selection in this side. Team lists will also appear on the Team App. Players involved are to be at each respective venue at least 30 minutes before kickoff.
All other players will be involved in Internal Trial matches at Queens Park. This includes all those students returning from Cadet Camp (who are not involved with CAS Sevens). Players involved in trials are reminded that they need a Waverley jersey and a “Colour” (non-Waverley) jersey.
For those who are not aware, Waverley College Rugby has a Team App. This contains information including weekly draws, playing venues, team lists (updated weekly), gallery, news articles and live scores.
You can access the Team App at https://www.teamapp.com where you can simply search for “Waverley College Rugby” and request access.
You are also able to download the Team App to your iPhone/iPad/Smartphone device by going to the App Store and again search for “Team App” (created by Team Mates). Once downloaded to your device you can then search for “Waverley College Rugby” and request access. An admin (Waverley College Staff Member) will then be able to grant access.
Already, lost property is starting to pop up at the conclusion of trainings. Lost property will either be kept at the Queens Park Pavilion (top level) or taken up to the Waverley College Wellbeing Centre. I highly recommend all players label their kit with their name and a contact number, so any found items can be returned to the owners.
Good luck to all players involved in the CAS Sevens as well as players involved in Internal Trials.
WAVERLEY TO WIN!
