A message from our Chairman
As we approach Christmas and the half way stage of this season, it is worth reflecting on the great things the boys and girls, coaches, managers and helpers have achieved at the RBSI Academy so far this year.
Player numbers are up, with nearly every age group showing increased player numbers. Many thanks to our RDO, Steve Melbourne, for his work in schools and encouraging players to come down to the Academy. The new Tots rugby for U5′s regularly attracts around 20 stars of tomorrow and with the indoor training facilities they can continue to play throughout the winter.
Nearly all age groups have now played competitive fixtures in the UK with some incredible results – well done to all. Space doesn’t permit me to list every game or tournament, but a very special mention to the Colts who top the Sussex championship. More of our Colts have made their senior debuts this year than ever before. The U15s are playing in the highest level of the Hampshire cup competition and more than holding their own. Our U10s recently attended the Farnborough festival winning the competition undefeated (photos of the victorious day attached) and our u9s came second in the recent Hampshire festival. Congratulations to all our players and a huge thanks to everyone who supports the Academy.
Here’s to a very Merry Christmas and continuing rugby success in 2015.”
