Puppy Pack 2019
“Welcome to the Pack”
PUPPY PACK INVITATION
In 2019 Wests Rugby will be continuing our successful “Puppy Pack” program in its Junior Rugby Union Pathways Plan. The BJRU promotes Pathways as its program for Boys & Girls from Under 6 and upwards to learn the basic skills of Rugby right up until the Player can play Senior Rugby.
Wests encourages Boys & Girls aged 3 to 5 years of age to come to Wests training on Friday nights. Children must be a minimum of 3 years of age. Alternatively, children that have had their 5 year old birthday in 2019 can play rugby in the under 6 teams.
The Puppy Pack concept allows children under supervision to be active, learn various ball skills and have fun with new friends while being involved in a Junior Club atmosphere. After 1 or 2 years of this program the child will have a better understanding when they take on their first year of official junior rugby in under 6.
The Club will provide trainers to run the program from 5.00pm – 6.00pm on Friday night to look after and nurture these Boys & Girls. Parents will also be encouraged to join in and assist where needed. Our Designated Trainers all have a Blue Cards. The child’s welfare and well being is paramount to the Club.
The fee for the Puppy Pack is $165 for the season.
The season starts on the 22nd February and goes through until the middle of August. The program will not operate in school holidays as there is no training on these Friday nights. The fee will include a new Bulldogs T Shirt, Bulldogs sticker, water bottle, entry to all rides at our Break Up Party, and a Puppy Pack Medal.
Children should wear shoes & training T Shirt and a parent or guardian MUST be nearby.
Welcome Days are: Friday 1st Feb 2019 4pm to 8pm and Friday 15th Feb 2019 4pm to 8pm
