I would like to welcome all Waverley College families to what looks to be a very promising year of Rugby.
I would particularly like to welcome all new players and families. Waverley College has a very proud history of Rugby. I encourage new families to have at look the photos and records found in the T & M Hayes (Queens Park) Pavilion at some stage this season, to give you an idea of the proud history you are stepping into. You are all very welcome!
Welcome Mr Lachlan Drew-Morris
This year we welcome Mr Lachlan Drew-Morris to the Rugby Program. Mr Drew-Morris is a passionate Old Boy who will be our Director of Coaching in 2022. We look forward to seeing the energy and experience Mr Drew-Morris will bring.
Have You Watched the 2021 Rugby Highlights Video?
It was a disappointing end to the 2021 season, which was cut short as a result of COVID-19. In remembering some of the wonderful Rugby that was played last year, as well as getting our community excited for the year ahead, I encourage you to watch the 2021 highlights video.
Thanks to the Elder Family for putting together this fantastic clip.
Waverley College Rugby Supporters’ Club (Parents and Carers) – We Need You!
The Waverley College Rugby Supporters’ Club are looking for any parents and friends in our community who are interested in joining our team.
We have been extremely fortunate to have wonderful parents and friends who have helped create such a wonderful atmosphere at Queens Park over the years. We are looking for interested parents to carry on this tradition.
Should you be interested in joining the club, particularly if you are interested in being part of the committee in a leadership role, we encourage interested parents and friends to meet some of the current committee members in the Pavilion over the coming two Saturdays on 26 March and 2 April.
This week training commenced at Queens Park. A reminder of the weekly training schedule:
- Monday and Wednesdays – 13s, 14s and 15s, Queens Park, 3:30pm – 5pm
- Tuesday and Thursdays – Opens and 16s, Queens Park, 3:30pm – 5pm
All players are expected to bring along Rugby gear (jersey, shorts, socks, mouthguard and headgear).
Students are to walk to Queens Park after school, where they will get changed in allocated sections. We ask students to please walk down in a safe fashion and cross the roads at the traffic lights.
Weekend Schedule – Saturday, 26 March, 2022
This weekend we are holding training sessions and some internal trials for all age groups. This will be held at Queens Park with the schedule for the morning sent out by Mr Steve O’Donnell. Coaches have been instructed to use the Saturday session as a training session, as we gradually work into contact.
A reminder that all players need to label all their gear and clothing. Each season we have a collection of lost property at Queens Park. If uniform/gear is labelled with the student’s name, it will usually find its way back to the owner!
We are holding some holiday training sessions during the upcoming Easter Holiday break. The schedule will be communicated to parents and players in the coming weeks.
*Please note the Waverley Rugby Team App is no longer in use. All communications which were once found on the Team App will now be found on the Waverley College App. Please ensure you subscribe (tag) ‘Rugby’ as your Co-Curricular Activity.
2022 Sponsorship Opportunities
During each Saturday home fixture in the 2022 CAS season, Waverley College Rugby will publish a program. Over the years we have had much generous support from the community.
Any parents or families, who may have a business and are interesting in sponsoring Waverley College Rugby in 2022, are welcome to email me to place an advert in the program. E: firstname.lastname@example.org
Waverley College Old Boys – Congratulations
We would like to congratulate Old Boys Ben Donaldson and Jed Holloway, who were selected in the first Wallabies Squad of 2022! We are very proud of their efforts and we look forward to seeing their progress on the playing field.
I look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks at Queens Park.
Waverley to Win!
Mr John McCoy
Convenor of Rugby
