Fog Hosts Rugby 101 Clinic - Sat, Oct 4

The San Francisco Fog will be hosting it’s Fall Rugby 101 Clinic on Saturday, October 4, 2008.

Come out and learn the sport that’s known as a hooligan’s game played by gentlemen—and ladies too! The Fog’s Rugby 101 clinic provides an excellent opportunity for newcomers to discover rugby and learn more about one of the most dynamic sports clubs in the Bay Area. At the end of the clinic, participants will get a chance to apply their newfound knowledge of rucks, mauls, scrums, tries and line-outs in a friendly scrimmage.

Make sure to get to the clinic by 9am to give yourself some time to suit up and meet our players. The Rugby 101 Clinic will be from 10am to 12pm at Treasure Island on the corner of Avenue H & 9th Street.

Also make sure to bring the following with you to our clinic:

  • Rugby boots (soccer/baseball cleats are OK)
  • Mouthguard
  • Knee-high socks
  • Shorts
  • Sunscreen
  • Water
  • Lots of enthusiasm

Want to get a head start? More information about rugby — including our Rookie Primer and an equipment (kit) guide — can be found on the Rugby 101 page.

Make sure to stick around for a riveting match of rugby as the Fog Women square off against ORSU Rugby at 2pm in their official Pacific Coast Rugby Football Union league match!
