Friends and Family Day 2018

On Saturday, August 4th, Play Rugby hosted its first Friends and Family Day in Prospect Park, Brooklyn! Members of the Play Rugby community – particularly players and families from our community-based programs –  were invited to spend an afternoon enjoying some sun, food and friendships while celebrating our Academy student-athletes and coaches after a very successful year.

Despite some rain in the morning, we were treated to a very sunny (and very warm) day. Thanks to everyone who came out celebrated with us! Congratulations to members of both the Boys and Girls U18 Academy teams who were presented with awards. And to all of our seniors (and even some of our coaching staff!) who were honored with Academy Alumni shirts…once a member of the Play Rugby family, always a member.

We’re looking forward to an amazing year beginning next month!
