Rugby 2021 season - No club fees - Free ball for new players - Free kit for 2020 players
Practices have now started which gives players the chance to work on fitness, mental attitude, and rugby skills. New players are very much welcome. Please turn up to the next training session (details on the home page) for your age group in outdoor fitness gear to find out more.
Coaches have been working hard on making it safe to return to play with a plan to ensure practice meets COVID-19 protocols. This includes wearing masks at all times, temperature checks when players arrive at the beginning of practice, and sanitiser for hands at breaks. 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 read the Lions COVID-19 protocol, then sign both the COVID-19 release and the USA Rugby release online before your first practice. Sorry but no player will be allowed to practice without these signed forms.
The last part of registration is to register at USA Rugby.
New Registration for 2021
No club fees - Free ball for new players - Free kit for returning 2020 players
We understand many families are struggling and Eastside Lions Youth Rugby board is in a unique position this year to remove all club dues. The minimum is for all players to be registered with USA Rugby ($20 for U10-U8 and $25 for others) . In past years the normal club fee would be between $190 and $440 per player + USA Rugby membership.
In addition this year the club will provide:
All new players with a free ball: for each of the players to train at home.
New players kit at cost: New players who want training kit will be able to order it on our new online store at cost. You can find the link here.
Free kit for those who registered last year: the club will be providing free kit as this is covered by your dues paid from last year. Anybody needing kit please go in and submit sizes within Teamsnap (if you go under your player’s profile and hit “Edit” button and scroll down you will see the fields for entering details for sizes for Shirt/Shorts/Socks). You can use the size guides on our online store (see link above). Any questions or problems accessing, please drop an email to email@example.com.
Our goal is to get kids outside, active and playing rugby in whatever form it takes this year and strive to navigate or remove any barriers to attain that goal.
The Club Shop
We have both off field and on field kit available for all youth sides and club supporters. This includes casual wear, sportswear and team kit for youth and high school players. Parents can also show their support with a range of off field clothing. Their is no financial reward for the club however visibility of The Lion's is important to generate awareness and demonstrate our community. The Club Shop is managed by World Rugby Shop.
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.
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.
