Due to the tides this Saturday (high tide at 9.10) and also with Underhill Park likely to be unusable due to rain we have no option but to cancel training this weekend.

Hopefully we will be back in action the following week.

Training at the park

Apologies from us for the moving of venues at short notice and thanks for your cooperation with this!

We eventually got started down at Underhill and had a good session - some great improvements are being made by the team in all areas. It was great to see a new face also in Lawrence who is the first boy from Newton school to join us.

We hope to revert back to the beach next Saturday at 9.30am. Weather permitting. Check the blog later in the week for any change of time/venue. If there is no change, see you bright and early at Caswell!

One thing the boys can have a think about over the next couple of weeks. We need a name for our team for the rest of our "tag rugby" years. The older teams have the names, Mumbles Wild Catz, Mumbles Crusaders and Mumbles Pirates.

Grant demonstrates to the team how to run around like Superman.


Apologies to those who found our 'beach pitch' flooded this week. On close inspection, the car park grass was found to be unsuitable too.In such future circumstances, (as we eventually did today), we will revert to Underhill Park top pitch (next to car park). Unless this is flooded too!Hope to see you on the beach next Saturday 0930 hrs - the tides are favourable (honest!)regards

9.30 start next saturday

There is a high tide at 1038 this staurday, but the tide is not particularly "big". We will aim for a 930 start, and if our pitch gets flooded, we will revert to plan B!

Plan B!
If you have boots bring these just in case. There is a small patch of grass at the back of the car park that we could use.

Coaches tips for players to work on.

Listen carefully to the intructions.
Remember the right way to tag; grab the tag and stop running, hold it up, shout "TAG!", hand it back to the person when they have passed the ball then get back ready to make another tag.

Keep up the great work!

Happy New Year!

Welcome back to Beach Rugby! This year will see us take the team from the beach up to the parks and various different rugby clubs for actual games of tag! Very exciting!

The first session this year will be at the usual place at 9.30am this Saturday 10th January.

Look forward to seeing you all there then!
