To the Stallion Family:
As we begin our second decade of existence, there are many things we can look back at with pride over and above the mere fact that we've made it this long: Rugby played by 5th graders; Middle School State Championship; High School State Championship; HS Sevens State Championship; All-State Honors and overseas tours for some of our players; numerous alumni playing for College and Club sides and the continued positive experience for all players and ther families. It really is awe-inspiring to review. But the future is rushing toward us, so we better get moving in that direction!
Unfortunately, the weather has reared its ugly head again and the 2015 Indianapolis trip had to be canceled. The snow covered fields have stymied our ability to train outdoors, and the Indianapolis fields are not much better. At this point it doesn't make sense to plan for such an endeavor due to field and preparation concerns. We'll now look forward to next year's event.
Training is going well at the RecPlex on Sunday nights. Some of our High School players are conspicuous by their absence. If you are one of those players, please find a way to attend rather than finding a reason for missing another session. Since we are only training once a week, it is important that ALL PLAYERS continue to train on their own time during the week.
Recruiting: This should never stop. Looking at our depth chart, we are short players at both the Middle School Junior (5th-6th) and Senior (7th-8th) levels. Chat it up with your friends! Its not too late to come out and join. The goal of our High School coaching staff is to field a separate Varsity, Jr Varsity and Frosh/Soph sides. We are very close to accomplishing that goal. Please keep the word out there. If there is anyone that needs encouragement by me or one of our coaches, send me their names and we'll make the call.
All-in-all, our pre-season work has been excellent! I am amazed at how fast some of our freshman and sophomores are growing and as a group how quickly they all move through the drills!
It is going to be an exciting year!
