Training indoors this Saturday! (Most likely...)
The weather is expected to turn bad this weekend (7 Dec). In that case, we will go indoors at Jollen. Time is 9:30 as usual. Check again for update!
Thanks to everyone who came to the grass finale at TRC. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to use the pitch any more this season. We hope to get some time slots over at the artificial grass at Erikslundsskolan cleared with the municipality soon.
In any case, there will be NO TRAINING until 9 November at the earliest, but since that is at the end of the school holidays (many players and coaches are away), we have to see if we can run training then, or if we have to wait until 16 November. Stay tuned.
Parents matches at TRC!!
Welcome to the autumn version of the greatest rugby event of the season, namely the kids vs parents games!
We start at 10:00 and first up will be the U7s, and then we move up in the age groups, finishing with the P15s. All parents are urged to turn up ready for play.You can play against any age group. Mums are especially welcome up on the pitch!
All families are asked to bring pastries/cakes/slices and something to drink, and we'll share among us, pot-luck style. See you on Saturday!
Please note: Still problems with summon e-mails ('kallelser') after Sportnik upgrade! If your summon e-mail link doesn't work, try to log in and go to the event in the calendar on this page and mark Ja or Nej. If this doesn't work, e-mail ubrehmer [at] hotmail.com.

Back to training at TRC again
Our heroes are back in Stockholm again after a super weekend down at Vänersborg! Fantastic effort from all players and parents!
This weekend, 5 Oct, we'll have a de-brief and a training session where we'll try to remember what we learned and what we should work on. And for those of you who couldn't come to USM, we'll get you up to speed for next week's gathering in Enköping. Welcome back, everyone!
USM / Swedish Youth Championships
Vänersborg 28-29 September 2013
USM cup site
Saturday morning: Hotel breakfast served from 7:00. Players meet at the Vänersborg RK club house at 9:20. First match at 10:00. We will split into two teams before the first match.
Sunday morning: Players meet at the Gym Mix pitch at 9:20. First match for EKF 2 (black) at 9:00. EKF 1 (green) play at 9:40.
We have enrolled two U9 teams and one U7 team. We have 13 U9 players in total and 4-5 U7s. Patrik will be busy coaching the P15 team, so in order to manage all teams (e.g. looking after the kids, taking them for lunch, making sure they are ready to play, keep them happy etc.), we'll need a bit of help from parents. Contact Ulf Brehmer (ubrehmer[at]hotmail.com) if you are interested in helping (0708578782).
Södertälje at 9:20 on Sat 14 Sep
Rugby festival again, this time at Brunnsängs IP in Södertälje. Bring a filled water bottle, match kit, grass boots and MOUTHGUARD! Please bring your own mouthguard, since we have run out of them in our shop. You can buy decent mouthguards at Decathlon in Bromma or Budo Fitness in Stockholm.
Yes! Summer is over at last!
At last, the loong summer break is behind most of us, and we'll be back on the grass again for some Rugby!
We'll have our first training on Saturday 17/8 at 10:00. All welcome.
Then there will be one more training the week after (24/8) and then we'll go to Uppsala's rugby festival on the last day of August.
We'll also visit Södertälje's först rugby festival on 14 September, and then we'll travel to Vänersborg and do our best at the Swedish Natoinal Youth Championship at the end of September.
So, plenty of fun ahead. It'll be great to see you all!

Flashmob at Sergels torg!
The European Rugby Federation (FIRA) is visiting Stockholm on 6 July, and the Swedish Rugby Union is eager to show what we do for youth rugbyn and within the Get Into Rugby programme.
Therefore, players aged 5-17 are invited to turn up at Sergels torg at 13:30 to perform a so-called flashmob.
- WHERE: Sergels torg, Stockholm
- WHEN: Saturday 6 July 13:30-15:30 WHO: Girls and boys aged 5-17.
- WHAT: We begin with a rehearsal for a 5-10 minute flashmob, where we will appear to be ordinary people doing nothing in particular, before everyone suddenly starts playing rugby! We'll perform the flashmob when the FIRA representatives come down to visit Sergels torg.
- WHAT TO WEAR: like an ordinary rugby match, but with trainers instead of studded boots, and a jumper or a coat to hide the rugby jersey.
Avslutning / Spring season finale
Avslutningsjippo med föräldramatcher, bulle och saft och annat skoj!
Vi hoppas att många föräldrar dyker upp i träningskläder redo för spel mot U7, U9, U11, U13 och kanske P15.
OBS: SÖNDAG 30/6! Håll utkik efter exakt tid, men troligtvis ca 10-13:30. Vi behöver också hjälp med bakning och kaffebryggning.
Grand finale at TRC before the summer break! Kids vs parents matches, pastries and drinks and a whole lot of fun!
We hope to welcome as many parents as possible in training outfits ready for games against the mighty U7s, the prodigious U9s, the talented U11s, the fearsome U13s and the perhaps even the unstoppable P15s. It'll be a day to remember!
NOTE: SUNDAY 30 June! Exact time to be confirmed, but roughly 10-13:30. We need help with baking and coffee.
EKF RUGBYSAMLING / RUGBY FESTIVAL
Lördagen den 18 maj anordnade EKF årets första rugbysamling på TRC. De andra Mälardalslagen besökte oss i alla U-klasser och bjöd på bra motstånd, allt i vänskaplig rugbyanda. Efter spel bjöds alla spelare på varsin hamburgare (tack till grillmästarna!) och sötsugna föräldar och andra åskådare kunde köpa fika (tack till alla som bakade, fixade kaffe eller hjälpte till!). Vi hörde att de andra klubbarna var mycket nöjda med dagen och vi hoppas att de gör det ännu bättre när det är deras tur.
On Saturday 18 May, EKF hosted this year's first rugby festival at TRC. The other regional teams came to us with teams in all U classes and produced some stiff opposition, all in a friendly rugby atmosphere. After the games, all players were allowed a burger each (many thanks to the barbecue team) and parents an other visitors could buy hot drinks and pastries (super thanks to all who baked, brought coffee or helped out). We heard that the other clubs were impressed and very happy, but we hope they can top this when it's their turn.
Deltagande lag / Participating teams were:
U7: Erikslund, Enköping, Exiles
U9: Erikslund, Enköping, Exiles, Uppsala, Lycee Français
