In 2021 Easts Rugby Union will be continuing our “Tiger Cub” program in its Junior Rugby Union Pathways Plan. Easts Rugby Union encourages Boys & Girls aged 4 and 5 years of age to come to training on Friday nights. Players must have turned 4 years before their first training session to qualify for Cubs. The Tiger Cub concept allows children under supervision to be active, learn various ball skills and have fun with new friends while being involved in a junior club atmosphere. After 1 or 2 years of this program the child will have a better understanding when they take on their first year of official junior rugby in Under 6. The Club appoints a volunteer “coach” from within the teams parent group to run the program from 4.30pm – 5.30pm on Friday night to guide and develop these boys & girls.
Any parent wishing to volunteer for a coaching or management position is to contact Tyrell Barker, firstname.lastname@example.org, Subject: 2021 Coaching and Management. Senior Players and parents will also be encouraged to join in and assist where needed.
The fee for the Tiger Cubs is $225 for the season. The fee will include a “Tiger for Life” training shirt, Tiger Cub Medal and team photo at the end of the season.
**Please Note: When registering a Tiger Cub you will need to select the “Modified Rugby Program” “Little Rugby” product
