Help Keep The Freeport Football Rugby Club Operational

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

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.
