Using Facebook for Recruiting

In an effort to find as many ways as possible to get the word out about Rugby and the Stallions, we would like as many players and parents to Friend Coach Bergman.  His Facebook page is used only to post bits of news and information about Rugby in general and the Stallions in particular.  Then, when you see an interesting post from Coach Bergman, please Share it with your network of friends.  In this way, we can reach as many potential new Stallions family members as possible.  All current member families should be sure to Friend the Stallions Facebook page as well.  Thank you!

Olympic (7s) Rugby This Summer

This summer, we will once again aggressively pursue Olympic (7s) Rugby.  Kevin Lydon will again coach the squad and we will also be hosting the State Championship Tournament at Melas Park on 7/15.

Olympic Rugby is a separate season with a number of tournaments (see Calendar) for which entry fees exist.  Therefore, there must be summer dues.  That will be $100.

Training sessions will take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at Busse Woods from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.  The first training session will be Thursday, June 1st.  At this point, we expect to play in tournaments on the following dates: June 10, 17 and 24 and July 9 (Sunday) and 15.  We expect to field at least one high school side each of those weekends (in some cases two).  We would like to field a middle school side if there is sufficient interest.

Please communicate to Coach Bergman as soon as possible your intention to participate in this exciting part of our year.

First Ever Rugby Illinois Advancement Day

We are pleased to announce that the Stallions staff will be working with Rugby Illinois to create the first ever RI Advancement Day on the morning (10 AM to Noon) that we host the Olympic (7's) State Championship Tournament.  This will take place in the banquest facility of Rolling Greens Country Club in Arlington Heights.

The purpose of this event is to put Illinois' most committed players together with college and senior club coaches to help establish relationships that will help them find a rewarding avenue for pursuing their rugby beyond their high school years.  Any interested player should contact Paul Bergman via text at 847-845-4982 to sign up for this exciting and worthwhile event.

FYI, the Olympic Championship Tournament will start that day at 3:00 PM with championship matches played in the evening under the lights at Melas Park in Mt. Prospect. 

Remind Messaging Update

So far, our messaging system is working very well to get announcements out to our players and families.  That being said, our staff is still on the learning curve with this system.  Therefore, we have to ask that players and families DO NOT use this system in any attempt to communicate with the coaching staff.  At this time, calling or texting the coaches directly to their cell numbers is the preferred and most effective method.  All coaches cell  numbers are listed on the website under Get Connected.  Thank you for your patience.

New Stallions Messaging System

As most of you know, the Club has struggled with the efficiency of our messaging system.  As a result, we have decided to use a new system.  It is called Remind.  Some of you may already be familiar with this as it is very popular with schools and other youth sports organizations.  

In our efforts to get this implemented, we may need to invite you into the system via an email or text message.  As we move into this system, you will be hearing more from us with instructions.  In order to stay in the information loop with the Club, please follow up on these requests as soon as you are able as there will come a point in time where we cease using the original system. 

When enrolling, please do so with both an email address AND cell number, as Remind will allow us to send an email with an attachment, which was a severe limitation of the old system.

Thank you for your patience.
