Games and Training this weekend - 15th December 2018

It's the last full rugby weekend before the Christmas break and we have another packed calendar for you.

On Saturday morning, both the U14s and U16s games against Portobello have now been CANCELLED.

Then, on Saturday afternoon the First XV (sponsored by McKenzie Skip Hire Ltd) host Gala YM and will doubtless be looking to atone for their painful last minute loss in the reverse fixture earlier in the season (the First XV game has now been POSTPONED). The Second XV head into town to face Edinburgh Northern IIs in Inverleith Park. Both those games kick off at 2:00 pm.

Also on Saturday afternoon, the U18s travel all the way to Ayr for what will be a tough fixture - again it's a 2:00 pm kickoff.

Then, on Saturday evening it's the club Christmas Jumper night. Hopefully we'll be celebrating on the back of a couple of good wins.

And then to round the weekend off, on Sunday afternoon it's the Kids' Christmas Party. Kick-off at the party is 2:00 pm and we'll wrap up by around 4:00 pm. The bar will be open throughout.

As ever, your support at any or all of these games and events will be very much appreciated and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over the weekend.

P7 Training up to Christmas

Next week there is the opportunity for any P7 players to train on Monday (17th) and Thursday (20th) with the S1/S2 squad.

This is in preparation of them moving up to play at U13 next year. We did this transition in training last year and the players really benefit from the experience as when they start playing U13 the games usually come quickly at the start of the season and it is a big difference playing on the “big pitch” and also with more players. Please be at the clubhouse for 18.45.

This will also give us the opportunity to arrange how we are going to get to Murrayfield on Saturday.

Also I can confirm that there is no training for P7s on Wednesday (19th).

Coaches' Jackets

We're delighted to report that the Club has been able to supply all our coaches with jackets to wear whilst coaching during the winter. You'll see the coaches wearing them at training sessions and at games over the coming months.

At this point, we'd like to draw your attention to the power of work that our coaches do for the club on an entirely voluntary basis. Without our coaches efforts, none of our players would be progressing and we owe them a great deal of gratitude for that. Please try to make sure that they know that you appreciate their efforts.

The jackets also serve a secondary purpose in that they make it clear who in our organisation is an active coach. All of our active coaches have been PVG checked and have completed an annual online "Rugby Right" training course highlighting not only the specific coaching items of interest to the SRU for each season, but also a short set of child protection principles that are key to keeping our Mini and Midi players in a safe environment.

We take child protection and wellbeing very seriously both as a club and as part of the wider SRU and will be sending out some additional child protection information early in the New Year. In the meantime, if you have concerns about any child protection issues, please speak to one of the coaches (and you know how to spot them now!) or contact either Greg Borthwick (Club Child Protection Officer - cpo@penicuikrugby.org) or Andy Law (Club President - president@penicuikrugby.org) directly.
