U10 Mustang Families,
Welcome to the 2017 rugby season! We are happy to see a good mix of returning U10 players from last season, rising U8 players, and new additions to the Mustang family.
As we did last year at the U10 level, we expect to field three teams this season which will be based on age and experience. This will give the chance for all players to learn the game, develop skills, and have fun regardless of their previous experience.
This season we will practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays alongside the U8 division. For the foreseeable future, practices will be held at Carmel Del Mar park/school. Practices will go from 4:00 - Dark (5:15 through December/early January and then 5:30 as we get more daylight later in the season). Practice starts after Thanksgiving with the first practice on Tuesday November 29th. Note that our field allocation might change after the new year, but I am hoping to stay at Carmel Del Mar as long as possible.
Carmel Del Mar Elementary is located at 12345 Carmel Park Drive San Diego, CA 92130. For returning families, the parking situation will be vastly improved compared to last season at Torrey Hills.
We will host a kick-off parent's meeting after one of the practices on the first week of December (exact schedule TBD) at a local restaurant. The players and siblings will be welcome to join. We will introduce the coaches and discuss our goals for the season.
Matches will be played on Saturdays. When the game schedule is finalized, we will post/distribute it on team snap. The first game will be January 14th, but we will have at least one scrimmage in December and one on January 7th.
We are looking forward to a fun season with a number of returning coaches to help teach your boys and girls the fastest growing team sport in the U.S. - rugby. GO MUSTANGS!
