Practice details are always subject to change due to weather and other unforeseen circumstances. We suggest contacting us before coming out. You can reach us via Facebook, Instagram, or email email@example.com.
What to bring:
Shorts: If you don’t have actual rugby shorts, any sort of athletic shorts will do. Avoid wearing shorts with buttons, zippers, large pockets, etc. Those garments can injure other players and are easily torn. We suggest wearing spandex underneath your shorts if it's not already built in. Athletic pants without zippers/buttons are also recommended if it’s a chilly practice.
Shirt: Wear a durable shirt or rugby jersey - something that can get dirty and/or be ripped, which does happen.
Sports Bra: Wear a good sports bra (or two).
Footwear: Cleats - soccer style, no metal spikes. We ask that you also come prepared with tennis shoes in case our practice gets turned into a gym workout due to weather, etc.
Mouthguard: Even if you don’t expect to be doing any physical contact drills, you should have a mouthguard with you at every practice. You should form your mouthguard to fit your mouth as directed in the instructions that come with the mouthguard.
Water! Especially during the hot months.
Seasonal items: bug spray, sunscreen, towel, warm clothes
Other things to know:
All jewelry must be removed. NO metal or plastic hair clips.
Fingernails must be trimmed so that no nail appears past the end of the fingertip.
ALWAYS notify the coach and captain of any important/relevant medical information (i.e., life threatening allergies, medical conditions, medications).
Message a board member or coach if you have to miss practice.
