Return to Rugby for 2021
We know everyone is eager to get practices started and give players the chance to work on fitness, mental attitude, and rugby skills. Coaches have been working hard on making it safe to return to play and have a plan to ensure practice meets COVID-19 protocols. This will include wearing masks, social distancing, and temp checks when players arrive at the beginning of practice. It will be important that parents and players read and understand these requirements carefully before starting practice as well as follow them during practice. Please download and sign both the COVID-19 protocol and waiver forms, and then return to firstname.lastname@example.org before first practice. Sorry but no player will be allowed to practice without these signed forms.
New Registration for 2021
We are waiting on the season schedule to be finalized by our state rugby organization, but are expecting practice Feb to April and games from April to June.
This year we will be making Club fees as low as possibly and will only be introduced once we have a firm commitments on the season. To keep these fees as low we will remove all new kit costs. Instead you will be able to order kit (rugby shirt, shorts, socks and a rugby ball) through the club should you need it.
New to rugby?
If you have not played rugby previously that is absolutely fine. We welcome everyone and our coaches will bring you up to a standard where you feel confident. If you are not quite sure if rugby is for you then attend one of our trainings for free to find out more. You can find out more information lower down the page.
The club needs your help
This year more than ever the club will need help from parents to get the kids out practicing. For each team we will require covid checks (temp checks on arrival, sanitizing equipment etc) each week. For those able to help, please sign up using the button below.
Youth USA Rugby Release Waiver
All players are required to sign a USA rugby release waiver and COVID-19 guideline before training or playing for the Eastside Lions Youth Rugby club.
We never turn away a young person who wants to play rugby. We welcome all and support those in need of assistance. We are both flexible and confidential in working with any individual or family. Please click here to contact us further.
Parents and volunteering
To keep our fees as low as possible we ask for each family to volunteer five hours. Not only does this help keep your fees down but it also provides the Lions, your athlete and your family an opportunity to be part of a great community. We are the largest club in the state and need your support to maintain this high level of expectation.
