Map to Practice Fields at Aspen Community Schools

Take the south entrance off La Madera between the portable class rooms. Because of construction you cannot access the field from the main school entrance

Games tomorrow

Your kids might have the opportunity to play 2 games tomorrow so try to stick around. The games start at 9am at the MRC. We will try to play 4 games. The young guys will start first and hopefully we will have enough for 2 games Rams vs LA (field 1 at 9:10am, U-9) and Owls vs Rams/LA little guys combo team (field 2, 9:20am, U-11). Then the Tigers vs the LA RIO Rabbits (field 1 at 9:45, U-13) and the Tigers/Rams Combo team vs LA Rabbits/Owls combo team at (10am on field 2). We should be done by 10:30. We will have a water jug out there but anything else should be provided by the parents so please bring snacks and juices. Please coordinate with each other. If you want to help ref please get there early so we can run you through the rules and you can shadow the first game with the refs. We could sure use the help.

I am looking forward to another day of fun for all of us!!!

Scrimmages this Saturday

The Wise Improvements owls listening to coach Axel

Despite the Holiday weekend MYR is planning on some informal rugby youth non-contact games tomorrow morning (Saturday 4/7/12 at 9am) at the MRC pitches. It looks like our numbers will be a bit low because of the holiday and Los Alamos won’t be joining us but we should have enough for a few touch games at different levels. We might also get a visit from former league head Richard Morris (current High School Tackle coach) and Rob Day (youth director 2007-2011) who might have a special rugby surprise for us. If we don’t see you then have a great weekend and we will see you at practice next week.

Match Report 3/31/12

The Mountain Youth Rugby League held its first games of the season this past weekend.  Two events were for the under 11(U-11) bracket and the under thirteen (U-13) bracket.  The game with the younger kids looked like a bit chaotic from time to time, but they never stopped running and never seemed to run out of energy.  There was plenty of scoring with the Wise Improvements Owls coming out on top 55 to 15 over the Rio Rams.  Despite the trouncing, the losing team never became discouraged and gave it their all right up to the final whistle.

The older group displayed more rugby discipline having a better grasp of the rules of the game as they advanced the ball by hard running and smart passing.    Once again there was plenty of scoring with the Second Street Tigers defeating the Los Alamos Rio Rabbits 50 to 35.

Joe Lewis, the league’s Rugby Development Officer, said there is still time for parents to register their kids into the program.  There will be no games this Easter weekend, but play will resume April 14 at the Santa Fe Municipal Recreation Complex.  He encourages all parents who think their children might be interested to come out with them and watch the games.  They can sign up at that time.
