Happenings at The Club, February 2022

  • February 4, 2022February 4, 2022

Dear All,

Just wanted to update everyone on what is happening at The Club. For once we can say that we are moving in the right direction!

All our programs are happening with Junior Soccer going great guns. On Saturday mornings both our Senior Rugby and Soccer Programs are seeing good numbers and increasing every week, which is great to see. We even managed to have our first full Soccer game against the YMCA on Sunday, so great stuff by our coaches for all our programs.

Of course, we rely on donations, memberships, and goodwill to keep the Club going, so we would welcome anyone who wishes to join for the 2021/22 season. Please let me know how you would like to join by contacting us. We have new Polo Shirts which are available to purchase or included in our $200 VP membership and memberships start from $50. Any and all donations are welcome. We will ensure every dollar given to us will be used in the right way as we intend to keep the doors open and offer as many programs as we can.

Look forward to finally having some games at The Club in the coming months. We hope everyone stays safe and healthy in these trying times.

Help Keep The Freeport Football Rugby Club Operational

  • February 23, 2021February 23, 2021

Dear All,

We hope this email finds you all well and safe in these extraordinary times.

Obviously, the onset of the pandemic has meant that The Club has been closed since March 2020 and we have only just started some social distancing training with the older rugby girls/boys and the older soccer guys. We are slowly starting our programs where we are permitted under Government protocols and we will endeavor to provide our kid’s programs as soon as possible. Currently, we aim to start the junior soccer program on Saturday, February 27th, 2021 and will send out a separate email to confirm this and the protocols we will follow.

As with all these situations, The Club still has bills to pay and expenses to keep the facility operational. To this end, we would like to offer the opportunity for members and patrons to join the Clubs membership for the current 2020 / 2021 season. We understand that last season wasn’t finished, and the start of this season has been delayed so we have made allowances for that in the playing memberships. We still hope to have our annual cocktail party when permitted.

To make things simple we would like to offer the current membership structure for all who may be interested:

  • VP – $200 – (Polo Shirt included)
  • Family – $175
  • Playing – $70 (normally $125) – Until end of June 2021
  • Social – $50
  • Junior – $25

We understand these are difficult times for everyone and totally understand if this is something which is not possible at the current time. We will not stop any child or adult from playing or coming to the club during this season, but we would be grateful for any memberships / donations we can secure.

We have various ways of collecting / paying for memberships so please let me know if you can pay the membership and we can work out the best method of doing so.

Please contact us to make a contribution.

Eighth Annual Junior International Rugby Festival a Resounding Success

  • June 5, 2018June 5, 2018

We recently wrapped up our most successful junior rugby festival in its eight-year history. Despite some weather concerns, teams from Nassau, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and Key Biscayne managed to make their way to Freeport for two days of fantastic rugby action. We appreciate the support from our sponsors, parents, players and coaches for what was truly a wonderful event.
