Presenter





Our training numbers have been good varying from 12-22! The commitment to improvement and learning has been terrific, new players are coming out and sticking with us, and veteran players are showing signs of growth even after years of play. Credit to everyone on our board, player leadership groups, and supporters for helping us engage and enjoy our rugby.


We are continuing with our forward's theme with pods play, open-play combinations, and forward decision-making interplay with half-backs. We pushed training back on Tuesday's to train with greater space and lighting.

Sport Psychology Series

Tom Gratton, MA will facilitate our early offseason sport psychology series starting with a 3-part series focused on the psychology of forward play at the set-piece. Tom completed his undergraduate degree at Durham University in England, his sport psychology master's degree at Ball State University, IN, and is completing his doctorate in sport psychology at Florida State University, FL. Tom played rugby, and now his research and applied work is focused on working with rugby teams and referees. More details on Tom's work and the sport psychology series to follow.
