Hi Everyone,

We hope you are all keeping well and looking forward to getting back to Mini Rugby.

St Mary's Covid Committee have been working very hard over the past month getting our coaches ready and all relevant documents compiled so we can have our Mini's return to play safely.

We plan to return to training on September 13th with exact details to follow along with more information on some of our new Covid Compliance measures - many of which you may already be familiar with.

For now we are pleased to announce that we are taking advantage of our own club app (ClubZap)  Not only will this be a central hub for all Club news, fixtures and results, it will also provide the club with contact tracing information that is mandatory at present. 

All members (or their guardians) must download the app, accept their allocated training slot and fill out the Covid Return to Play form on ClubZap the day before arriving to training. 

Every year we look forward to welcoming our newest players to the club, our Under 6 team.  This team is for kids who were born in 2015 and who have reached the age of 5.  The Under 6 group is already set up on ClubZap under the stewardship of Joe Shine.  If you are aware of any children who may be interested in joining, please forward this message. 

Please see notice below regarding setting up clubzap.

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 13th,

Paddy & Shane
Directors of Mini Rugby
