U13/U15 Girls Season Update

U13/U15 Girls Season Update

U13/U15 Girls

Overall, we had an excellent season where the girls were able to further develop their skill leading into the higher age groups and high school level. We worked on scrum and lineout techniques, in addition to allowing them the opportunity to think for themselves on the field so they are able to adapt to various rugby situations. During games, the girls were able to imply these teachings effectively and even further develop their leadership skills. In many cases when we would travel to Edmonton for our festivals, and played with less experienced teams, our Titan girls would step up and teach them some of the techniques learned in practice to create better results on the field in a game situation. As a coach, I do not count the wins or losses but look at my players development for the season. In this case, I feel all the girls demonstrated a better understanding of the game of rugby, in addition to giving them some building blocks for higher levels of competitive play if that is the route they choose to take in their rugby careers. I thoroughly look forward to what these girls can provide not only to the Titans Rugby Club, but also themselves as rugby players in the future.

Thanks,

Coach Ashton Selig

U9 Spring Season Update!

U9 Spring Season Update!

This was a great year for u9 Titans rugby. With “unofficial” score keeping we finished with a 6-0-3 record in the first 3 tournaments. There were some amazing standout plays from each and every player. This season we focused a lot on defense and moving laterally instead of chasing. “Take away their speed” was our motto. Each player grew and improved so much from day one with real passion for the game. They all played so hard, had huge runs, great passes and awesome hustle on defense. It has been an amazing time to coach all of them.  I am very proud of their Titan Up spirit!
