The 2017 junior rugby union season is well underway for the Eumundi Dragons Junior Rugby Union club who played at Noosa Dolphins Sunshine Beach grounds last Saturday.
With Under 7, Under 8, Under 10 and Under 13 age divisions, the small but mighty club is preparing for what is expected to be an exciting and enjoyable season for the entire team of players, coaches, managers and supporters.
At this stage, the Dragons are still looking for players to ensure that these teams have a secure playing roster.
Any potential new players – born 2004 to 2012 – are advised to attend a Thursday night training session from 4.30pm to 5.30pm at the Eumundi Showgrounds.
There they will meet club officials, have a run with players and receive all the information needed to register for the 2017 season.
All new recruits are most welcome – no previous experience in the game of rugby is required.
For the first time in a couple of years, the club has seen the signing up of a number of girls wishing to experience the game “played in heaven.”
Closer to Easter, the club also has plans to be nominating an Under 12 or Under 14 Girls 7s team to participate in an all girls competition in junior rugby on the Sunshine Coast.
The Australian Women’s 7s win at the 2016 Rio Olympics appears to be still having benefits for the growth of girls’ rugby here on the Coast!
