Women Host Touch Rugby Session: Pier 40, Monday, August 3

By Rosalie MacGowan

Hosted by the NYRC Women and open to All Women's Rugby Players in the Area - RSVP today!

Pier 40, East Courtyard, Houston Street and the West Side Highway
(Take the 1 train to Houston Street and walk west.)

It's finally happening! We've been playing a bit of touch rugby at training and it seemed to be well received so your friendly admins have put together a Women's Touch Rugby Session at Pier 40 on Monday, August 3, from 815p-10p. All YOU need to do is RSVP!

Touch, 7s, and 15s rugby are all different games but there are skill sets that cross over and can benefit individual players who in turn can contribute what they learn back to their 7s or 15s game. Passing, catching, running lines, and other fun and transferable skills...come on out and give it a go!

The guest coach is Annie Morton, of Benson's and Pier 40 Touch fame, and she's offered to put on a fun and friendly touch rugby primer for us: skills, drills, and games.

Click through to find out more and RSVP.

Turnaround is tight and the more numbers the better so it's been opened up to women's players from the other area NYC clubs and colleges.

As soon as 10-12 players register a confirmation email will be sent out. Should you have any questions, or want to RSVP after August 1, please email Rosalie using Feel free to reach out with any questions and bring your mates!

Please pass this on to anyone looking for a different sort of off-season rugby session and hope to see you next Monday!

Where next?
