Meeting at Jesuit Dallas

As you prep for Colorado trip and your convening at Jesuit of Dallas, please remind the players and their parents of the following. There are summer sports camps, summer school and construction crews on campus. For parking you have been asked to recommend players carpool to the school. Cars should be parked by the stadium on the lower level parking area if they are planning to remain over night/weekend. Those who park here do so at their own risk and the school assumes no responsibility. There is an event planned here on Saturday which I am involved in and I will check on any vehicles left behind.

The lower field locker room (behind the scoreboard/concession building) has been made available for you for changing before and after training. Showers are available in this building as well but no towels. Players are asked to change there and not in the washrooms, the main campus buildings or the parking lots.

I will be there tomorrow with my kids as will Paul Maturi or stadium manager. If you need anything please let us know prior to you arrival.

Bridgend Game and Practice at St. Thomas's Granger Stadium

The JV practice and Varsity game versus Bridgend is being held at Granger Stadium of St. Thomas High School. The map link is on the schedule too.

All players need to arrive to the field by 9:00am. The JV team will begin training promptly at 9am so don't stroll up at 9. The varsity will then begin preparation for the game. I will have an agenda for you later next week.

JV will train for one hour and then get a shower, then watch the varsity.

Varsity will follow the agenda and play the game and shower after the match is done. The entire team will be hosting Bridgend so we all need to be there for post game activities. When we are through with the festivities we will all be going to the Eagles match. So, it will be a fun filled day of rugby.

Please bring your training gear with you as we MUST look the part. Every player will be in their grey issued HP trainer. Also, BRING YOUR OWN TOWEL AND TOILETRIES FOR SHOWERING.

All monies for the trip MUST be provided for you to receive your official RT-HPP kit. We will be getting this on that day. We also will be in the same shirt for the Eagle game. Please wear khaki shorts for the game, the shirts will be provided from your kit.
