Another successful MINI Rugby Blitz in Creggs
Creggs RFC hosted another successful Mini Blitz last Saturday morning with visiting side Monivea RFC. This involved both boys and girls from Under-7’s through to Under-12’s.
Almost 200 children played a number of matches on our 4G pitch as the recent weather has taken the grass pitches out of play. The smiles in the photos show the joy rugby brings to our children. We always welcome new players and hope you will support our Minis in whatever way you can.
Next Saturday – MINI Rugby Blitz in Sligo
Next Saturday, there is a MINI Rugby Blitz for all age groups scheduled for Sligo RFC, which will be confirmed later this week, as it is subject to weather conditions.
Request for more parents to get involved

It isn’t international rugby so everyone can get involved in coaching or other areas in the Mini Rugby section of Creggs Rugby, and enjoy time spent with their children. If you assist or be part of a team with of the above qualities please contact any of the coaches listed above.
If you have any ideas that you think may improve the club we welcome them and again please notify one of the coaches.
If you are in our Creggs Club Lotto, we thank you! If not, we hope that you would consider joining, as it works out at less than €2 weekly and with your child’s membership you get a further 20 per cent discount. There are high on-going costs associated with providing the best sports facility in Connacht and our Creggs Club Lotto is the major fundraiser for us. So please join and maybe even try to sell a couple if you can.
