Dear Parents & Players:


You may not be aware of the fact that we have decided to lease a fantastic indoor Rugby facility at Iron Lakes Golf Course. This indoor sports field will help our team to improve rugby play by having a field large enough and safe enough to play full contact rugby in during the cold winter months. Teams in the EPRU must wait for good weather to start actually playing rugby, we do not! The field is very expensive and it is important that we have enough players in attendance to make it worth the cost.


Indoor Full Contact Rugby Practice’s Start this Sunday January 16th from 12:00 noon to 2:00, and will continue every Sunday for the next 3 months. Our 2005 schedule will be handed out at the first indoor session. Players who are not registered with the team need to hand all information and registration fee in to coach Benny prior to practice.

Directions: Cedar Crest Boulevard North past Parkland High School, make second Left onto Shankweiler Road, go ˝ mile look to right. Parking will be behind building. $5 per player fee must be paid the same day of practice as the charge is $200 per session. No acceptions.

Please bring a mouth piece, rugby shorts or athletic shorts, a long sleeve t-shirt or under armor, socks, and a clean pair of Sneakers to all of our practice sessions. Rugby shirts will be handed out and returned after each session. Players should also bring a water Bottle.

Note: We will continue our practice sessions on Mondays 6:00 to 8:00 at Jefferson School in Allentown and also on Thursdays from 5:00 to 7:30 at West End Youth Center at 20th and Greenleaf Streets.


Any questions? please feel free to call .
