If this is your first season with Easts or in fact rugby, then welcome to our club. Navigating your way around new websites, training fields on a Friday night, getting to know new parents of equally excited or bewildered players and knowing who to ask when you have a question are all part of the fun that goes with joining a club such as Easts. The first thing you should know is that the club is run by volunteers and your support is greatly appreciated. It is difficult to know who to offer your assistance to so the first port of call is our Club Manager – Julie Laws – who works Monday to Friday in the clubhouse office.
The management committee is also a voluntary group of dedicated individuals who appreciate any offers of assistance. The Club appoints a volunteer “coach” from within the teams parent group to run the program from 5.00pm – 6.00pm on Friday night to guide and develop the boys & girls. Any parent wishing to volunteer for a coaching or management position is to contact our Director of Rugby – Pat Richards Subject: 2017 Coaching and Management.
All further information and guidelines can be found in Documents section on this website.
