Cayman under-12 team headed to Grand Bahama

The Cayman Rugby Union has confirmed, this week, that it will be bringing a group of 40 junior kids (under-12) to play a weekend of rugby in Grand Bahama. With parents and coaches, the group will total over 70 persons and they will be on Grand Bahama from Saturday June 11 to Monday June 13.
Cayman Coach Kes Wright is very happy to be bringing his team to Grand Bahama.

“The kids and coaches are all very excited to be visiting Grand Bahama and we look forward to some fun rugby and to see the sights and sounds of Grand Bahama,” he said.
Cayman is known for having a successful rugby youth program and it will be a real test for Freeport, Grand Bahama to give the team some exciting matches. Peter Beirne, Freeport’s Youth Development Officer, said: “It will be a true learning experience for our kids but I'm sure they are up for the challenge. The whole idea is to provide the young kids with the experience of playing a team sport against other kids and learning how to play rugby in a game situation. We have been having over 35 under-12's coming to the club on Saturday mornings so we'll have enough kids.”
Bahamas Hot Mix will be sponsoring the Freeport Youth Team Kit and Ebbe Saidi from Hot Mix was very happy to help.
“It’s always important to assist the youth in our community and with such a special weekend with Cayman bringing such a large group, we were more than delighted to assist the team,” said Saidi.
The schedule will include a mini round-robin tournament on Saturday June 11, and then an under-12 Rugby International on Sunday June 12. The full itinerary is expected to be released soon. Children who are interested in playing are asked to come out on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m., to the Freeport Rugby Football Club.
