Welcome to Easts Tigers Under 15 – Under 17, 2018. 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 Wednesday 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 or Erin Toohey firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: 2018 Coaching and Management.
The fee for Under 15 – Under 17 is $355 for the full season, both Pre and Post seasons or $177.50 for a half season, either Pre or Post. The fee will include a “Tiger for Life” T-shirt.
