Its registration and we are back to usual training schedule on Sunday at 11am.
See you on Sunday!
After a well earned summer break, the Micros section return to training with our annual registration day on Sunday 19th August 2018.
We ask that you come to the big hall for 11am where the team will greet you and take you through the membership and registration process.
Thereafter, we will head down to the pitches and get back to the action with some training finishing at approximately 12.30pm.
As ever, our sections are run by volunteer coaches and due to a few moving up with their children to P4, we ask that any and all parents in Micros step forward to assist with coaching and managing the boys at this level. The club will assist and put you through your PVG and entry level Rugby Qualifications. All you need to do is ask one of our other volunteers who will direct you (before we start asking you!).
Look forward to seeing you all again ahead of another fun and enjoyable season at Whitecraigs.
Craig “Percy” Percival
The Whitecraigs Rhino’s team, are on over 35’s team. We train on Tuesday night from 7pm, Tuesday the 14th being the starting date.
We’re always looking for new players, whether you have played before or just fancy trying it out, please come along and join us.
We only train once a week due to work commitments etc, all other training is left to you. We try to have one game a month, which at our age, gives us plenty of time to recover. We’re a very sociable team who always try to have a well earned beer after a game.
To start playing, you’ll need some rugby boots, sports wear (not expensive stuff, just in case it gets ripped) and some deep heat for the warmup.
The Whitecraigs rugby kit (shorts, socks etc) can be purchased from PSL in Hillington industrial estate. Sometimes there is a deal for players at the start of the season, so come along first before buying anything.
For all current players, we hope to see you on the pitch for 7pm on Tuesday the 14th August.
See you then, yours in rugby,
On Sunday we are back to rugby with a light training session after helping with the annual Rugby Force day
This Sunday is the Rugby Force day when we get the club looking as good as possible for the coming season and it starts at 10am.
We’re asking you to come along at 10 to help out with all the little tasks that go together to make West Lodge looks its best. After an hour of helping out, we’ll convene on pitch 3 (with its new floodlights!) and go through a light training session and get the kids back in the rugby mood prior to next week’s registration day.
There’s a lot of changes this year which should make the games even more enjoyable for the kids.

New player management system introduced by the SRU.
Scottish Rugby is now using a new player registration system called SCRUMS, having switched from the previous system at the end of the 2017/18 season. SCRUMS has been developed to provide a modern, integrated set-up to record member information for those involved with rugby in Scotland.
ALL PLAYERS (AGED 8 AND OVER) AND CLUB OFFICIALS, ARE REQUIRED TO REGISTER WITH SCRUMS OTHERWISE THEY ARE UNABLE TO REPRESENT WHITECRAIGS RUGBY CLUB.
Please click on the following link to begin the registration process.
All the information that you require is contained in the attached documents. However, If you have any questions, please contact Brandon – firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Email Verification – when a player or parent provides their email address, they will receive an automated message from SCRUMS to confirm that the email address provided is a valid one. This email will request the player / parent to click on a link to verify their email address. Some email servers have been rejecting these automated verification emails and we are working to resolve this. Please do not worry if you or any players / parents / club officials have not received these. If an email address has not been verified in the system it will not prevent a player from being fully registered and we will resend verification emails once the issues have been fixed.
A reminder that the Club AGM will take place on Monday 11th June at 7.00pm.
The following have been nominated for positions;
President – Craig Percival
Vice-President – David McCormick
Hon Treasurer – Douglas Emery
Hon Secretary – Graeme Scott
With the temperatures soaring, it’s hotting up to be a wonderful end of season Family Fun day this Sunday.
This Sunday sees the last training day at WRC for Season 2017-18 and we finish it in traditional style of a fun tournament, with 4 teams contesting Andy’s Cup. We start at 11.00hrs, pick four teams on the “tallest to smallest” basis, play a mass game of touch rugby, rugby rounders, obstacle race and then a tug-o-war final.
The trophy will then be presented to the team captain from the President, Vice President, Captain and Head Coach Teams, following which we will present trophies to the junior age groups, including medals and certificates.
This is open to EVERYONE, so please come along and support us. AS the weather looks good there will be a barbecue, so if I can have some volunteers to assist, this would be great.
I hope to see as many of you as possible on Sunday.
Thank you for supporting us this season.
