2014 SEASON KICKS OFF
Rugby season begins! This Saturday it is full competition for all Seniors & u16s/u17s - all those teams playing at Woongarrah against Warnervale (v Ourimbah in u17s). It is a tough start to the season with the longest trip to play against a Club that had its best ever season in 2013. In the Juniors there are 7s gala days at Kariong for 13-15s, Heazlett 10-12s and Ettalong 7-9s. Lots of fun to warm up for the start of their competitions on 26 April.
16s-9:00, 17s-10:10, 19s: 11:20, 3s-12:30, 2s-1:40, 1s-3:00
Good Luck to all the Sharks on Saturday!For those new to the area, maps to the grounds can be found at http://www.avocasharks.rugbynet.com.au/default.asp?id=203

Competition for u16s & u17s kicks off on 5 April. All younger ages play 7-a-side gala days on 5 & 12 April (same as last season), with first competition games on 26 April
"Boys, for the next 6-7 weeks prior to the season we are not allowed by council on Heazlett Park. As such we have organised the Central Coast Adventist School next to Erina Fair for Thursday night training. This comes at a cost to the club but we think it is vital in our preparation for the 2014 season. Entry to the school oval is off Karalta Road Erina, down past Harvey Norman to the end of the street. The school gates will be open and the oval is right there. There are a couple of parking spots inside the gates and the rest on the street. Bring boots and joggers. Training will be set up ready to go at 7 as we have to be off the oval at 8.
JUNIORS REGO DAYS
Time to start thinking about the 2014 Rugby season. Our Junior registration days will be 1st & 8th February at the Heazlett Park clubhouse 11am-2pm. Players returning from 2013 season need to register on 1 February to guarantee their place in 2014 teams. u7 and u16 new players can also register on that day. On 8th february registrations are open to all players, new and returning. All registrations require a parent to sign the necessary forms, and new players need to provide proof of identity by either birth certificate or passport.

Rugby at Avoca is still amateur and can only continue with the support and help of many volunteers. Organising and fielding 4 senior and 11 junior teams is not an easy task. There is a great need for canteen helpers, and the Juniors always welcome ground marshalls, assistant team managers & first aid people. The vacancies aren't limited to those areas, if you would like to give a little of your time, there are many other roles available.
Get involved with the Club, it is the sporting heart of Avoca - be a part of your team. Please contact:
