Today’s outdoor training at Altgeld Park is cancelled. We’ll see you indoors on Wednesday at St. John Berchman’s.
For those of you who have been trying to follow along, the practice situation has been somewhat fluid. Please refer to the Calendar menu above, as we try to keep that current.
Training schedule (subject to change):
Sundays 1:00-3:00 at Altgeld Park – turf field where we will be doing our tackling drills
Wednesdays til 3/26, or the weather lets us train outside, 5:30-7:00 at St. John Berchman’s on the corner of Altgeld and Maplewood, on the northwest corner – conditioning, situational games, laws of the game
Fridays 5:30-7:00 at Humboldt Park (unless we get the gym at a local High School, in which case it will be 6:00-7:00) – unopposed game situation running, restarts, laws of the game, defensive alignments, etc.
Humboldt and Altgeld Parks are on turf fields suitable for standard rugby cleats (studs or molded)
See you at training!
Welcome to the 2014 Season of Chicago Wapiti RFC!
Registration for both our Rookie Rugby (non-contact) and co-ed tackle rugby programs is available here: 2014 Registration
We regret that this morning’s clinic at Smith Park must be postponed due to standing water on the field as of 07:30 this morning. Given that this would be our first experience at Smith Park, we do not want to jeopardize our relationship by tearing up their field. We will work with the park supervisor at Smith to reschedule the clinic.
Unless iYRA indicates otherwise, this afternoon’s Girls Day of Rugby should still take place.
Happy Father’s Day to all our dads. All of our players should come to Revere Park this afternoon from 2:00-4:00 for a fun-filled afternoon of rugby, cookout, and kids vs coaches and parents action!
For those of you who have been looking to the site for updates, sorry about the hiatus. We have a parent who has volunteered to help us keep it more current.
Registration is still open for the 2013 season. Tackle practice is taking place now on Fridays and Sundays; touch season begins April 14. Register here for either program.
