The sport of rugby offers numerous benefits, including opportunities, competition, friendships, and a sense of identity. We invest our time and volunteer at various levels because we believe that adult club rugby contributes to the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of its members. Our dedication aims to ensure that future generations can enjoy the camaraderie and connection that the sport provides beyond their schooling or training. We volunteer because we recognize the importance of giving back to the game that has given us so much.
The Senior Club Council is seeking individuals with fresh perspectives, skills, and enthusiasm to join several committees. These committees play a crucial role in enhancing the day-to-day experiences of senior club rugby members. By assisting the Club Council in navigating the current landscape, volunteers can help ensure that members receive valuable benefits and meaningful experiences.
