Sunday Touch Rugby

 East H.S. Rugby is starting our annual Sunday touch Rugby sessions. These will be on Sundays and the 1st one is Sunday Sept 6 from noon- 2 p.m. All sessions will be at the East H.S. turf Field. 

 
These sessions will be held every Sunday through December 20. All sessions are noon - 2 p.m. except Oct. 18 and Nov. 22, when they are 3- 5 p.m. because the Broncos play at 11 a.m. on those two Sundays. 
 
These sessions are for returning and new players. No experience necessary. If you are a returning player, come and work on your ball skills and get a fun run. If you are new to the game, come out and meet the guys and see if you like it. This is touch rugby with no contact.The sessions are FREE. 
 
Coaches will be there to play, referee and supervise.But these are not formal  practice sessions. 
 
I will be at the first one and many of the later sessions but I will be in the U.K. for the Rugby World Cup , but Coach Mark Mussleman ( cell 720-800-1111) will be in charge in my absence. 
 

Also- Rugby Colorado is sponsoring some rugby events on the same dates as our Sunday Touch sessions. If  players would rather attend the Rugby Colorado events , that is ok with the East Rugby Coaching staff. See details below.

Rugby Colorado (not East Rugby) is hosting a 10-a-side rugby league this fall with both competitive matches and skills clinics. The matches are on 9/13, 9/27, 10/11 and 10/25. The skills clinics are on 8/30, 9/6, 10/4 and 10/18. All are at Cook Park from 12pm to 2pm. The link to register is https://rugbycolorado.sportngin.com/register/form/552851283. The cost is $150 for both the matches and the clinics. If you just want to participate in the clinics the cost is $80 using the discount code BRUGBY70.

HOPE TO SEE YOU SUNDAY SEPT. 6 at NOON.

East Rugby Upcoming Events

EAST H.S. RUGBY UPCOMING EVENTS
As most of you know, we finished the 2015 season by winning our 5th State Championship .It was a great close victory over Regis that ended with our goal line stand that featured East Rugby discipline and toughness. 
 
We concluded the 2015 Summer Sevens season with winning our pool and a 4th place finish in the Denver Sevens Tournament, which included teams from out of state. Considering the three teams that finished above us were all  all star teams , this was a good showing. We also won the plate division ( 3rd place) in the Rugby Colorado Summer Sevens league.

East in State Championship Match

EAST RUGBY IN SATE FINALS

The match will kick off at 2;40 p.m.  Children under13 are free and admission for 13 and older is $6. East H.S. students will have a $6 admission fee. 
 
East beat Regis in the first match of the season on the final play so this should be a close, exciting match.

negative cheers against the other team. Let’s have a great day for East H.S. Rugby.
