Saturday May 12th was a fantastic day for our club! From the West Houston Lions/Houston Sabercats Rugby Skills Clinic attended by almost 90 children at Rhodes Stadium to the First Annual End of Season Rugby Ball last night with more than 130 guests!
Thank you to all those who helped support the clinic. Justin, Matt, Charlie, Rob, Codi, Osea, Josua, Connor, Kenneth, Diego and Pago from The Houston Sabercats! Thank you Grant for your support and Judy for taking photos. Thank you to Jennifer, Roisin, Nok, Les, Matt, Joe, Justin, Ivan, Tom, Mauricio, Nigel and Brooke from the West Houston Lions for all your help.
The kids had a great day and loved learning from the Sabercats, completing 4 rotations and focussing on activities such as passing, footwork, evasion, tackling and decision making.
The kids tell us they especially loved the break out session and being able to ask the Sabercats all sorts of questions from "What was your worst injury?" to "If you could live anywhere in the world where would you live?"
The End of Season Rugby Ball was a fantastic night and a celebration of all that has been achieved in our inaugural year as the West Houston Lions. Thank you to Bec and Vanessa for leading the organization committee and putting on a really fun night for us all. Thank you to Jane, Shaunda, Christina, Hunter, Nigel and Brooke for their help and thank you to all who donated prizes for the raffle. Thank you to our guest speaker, Justin Fitzpatrick, for sharing his insights into professional and international rugby. Thank you to Ed (aka DJ Promo), Traci for taking photos and Virtuosi for the musical performance.
