The Peebles Piranhas new season kicks off on Saturday 20th August with a training session at 10.00am at The Gytes which will be followed by a rugby festival. All primary school children are welcome with sessions offered for all ages from P1 to P7. The emphasis is on FUN and we encourage any children who are interested, whether they have played rugby before, or are just keen to try something new. No knowledge of the game is required and instruction will be given by trained coaches.
This year the season will run every Sunday from August until the end of October when we will then have break for the winter. Sessions will then recommence from the beginning of March through to June and we have games arranged for p3-p7 age groups throughout the season.
If you would like to join in the fun please come along to the first session at The Gytes or look up the Peebles Rugby Club website for more details. As always we are on the lookout for more volunteers to help us with running these sessions so please let us know if you are willing: no knowledge of rugby is required as you’ll soon find out if you watch us!
Finally, all involved with the Piranhas would like to say a massive thank you to Jim King who retired at the end of the season after 8 years in charge of the Piranhas. We have now formed a committee of 12 members just to look after the work Jim did on his own! We hope Jim can now enjoy his free time- there will be plenty of it!
