Touring Team

 

The Woodlands Youth Rugby Club attempts to organize a Rugby Tour in the Spring. The Touring Team usually consists of High School players.  It’s an opportunity for the team to bond as well experience local club hospitality and camaraderie. Past tours include Scotland and Northern California. The teams have thoroughly enjoyed touring as it provides an opportunity to play against top notch teams, and prepares the team for State competition.

Welcome to the Northern California Rugby Tour page. We hope you find this helpful as you make arrangements for your player and hopefully yourselves. This tour is a great opportunity for our players to play some of the best teams in the State of California, enjoy each others company and make some lasting memories.

Here are a few details.

TOUR DATES March 13-March 19
AREA OF TRAVEL Sacramento, CA (Airport Code SMF)
Tour Details- Tour cost $685 plus airfare (air travel arrangements to be made by the parent/guardian)
Cost includes all hotel accomodations, transportation from the hotel to all events,  and daily breakfast. All other meals, snacks and incidentals are NOT covered in the Tour Fee.

There will be three matches. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. That’s a lot of rugby in one week! Your player will come happy and tired!

There are important deadlines so please register and pay for your player as soon as possible. There are two payment options available.  To register your player, please follow the link below.

PAY HERE

Each family is responsible for making flight reservations for their player and it is absolutely imperative that we communicate our flight information with each other so we can help with escorting players, pick up/drop off at airport and rides to the hotel.  In order to assist in this process, we have designed FLIGHT TRACKER .  Once you make your flight arrangements, please let us know so we can share with the group via email. This will aid other parents who may  have solo players, or a group without a chaperone.

You will receive updates via email on all matters related to the tour.

California, here we come!!
