Tag Rugby

Children taking part in tag rugby teams will need to bring on training and  match days the following: a change of clothes (that may get muddy) and football / rugby / astro boots which will be essential!

Mr Brooks, father of Finn in 3A, has very kindly volunteered to trial and coach our year 3 tag-rugby team in preparation for the upcoming tournament on March 24th from 1pm-3.30pm at Priest Hall playing fields. After two lunchtime trials,  on Monday 3rd February and Thursday 6th February, a squad of around 12 children has been selected.  They will be asked to attend weekly practice sessions at Thursday lunchtimes commencing on 13th February.  
The team is as follows: Dexter D, Elise G, Esme G, Finn B, Harry HD, Jacob R, Jacob W, Jaik O, Jinho B, Kiaan H, Malia L and Seraphina W.



Due to the amazing enthusiasm displayed by all the chidren, Mrs Wilson has asked if we might be able to field a B team at the tournament too and we will let you know as soon as we here back from the organisers. In the meantime unfortunately we can't invite the B team to training session; but if they are permitted to compete in the tournament we will ensure they have at least one or two practices beforehand.  The potential B team will consist of:- Bohan B, Charles HD, Emily K, Ithikasan R, Lauren R, Luca C, Michael M, Molly D, Sofia O and Thomas D.



Mr Jones (father of Marcus - 4D) has very kindly volunteered his services once more as a rugby coach for Year 4 in preparation for the District Tournament. After trials during the lunchtimes of Friday 17th & 31st January the following team was selected: Evie, Freya, Jack, James, Josh, Maisy, Manny, Marcus, Miles, Ryan, Skye and Thomas. Training wil be each Friday lunchtime from 7th February to 20th March (excluding 6th March due to Hooke Court trip).  The tournament will be on Tuesday 24th March (12.30-3.30pm) at Priest hill playing fields.



I am very happy to announce that Mr Paul Aboud, uncle of Alex & Emily Kopp, has very kindly volunteered to train our Year 5 tag-rugby team. We will therefore hold trials for all interested children on Wednesdays 12th and 26th February, from 12.30 to 1pm on the lower field. Children should go straight into lunch, minimise the chat and be outside, in a change of clothes (that is not their PE kit) and football / rugby boots by 12.30pm at the latest please. Once both trials have been run, a squad of 12 players will be invited to continue training each Wednesday, up to and including the 1st April, with the tournament taking place on Thursday 2nd. 


Mr Carmicheal (parent of Reuben) has kindly agreed to help coach the Year 6 rugby team.  The Year 6 tag rugby team 2020 is as follows: Callum T, Charlotte S, Henry G, James J, Josh H, Lewis H, Lola F, Ollie D, Reuben C, Rhys C, Rose U and Will D. Team training will be each Friday lunch time from 10th January.  Please ensure they have a change of clothes and football/rugby boots.  The tournament date will be in late February/early March.
