Hope everyone enjoyed the day on Saturday. I am immensely proud of how the kids played and conducted themselves throughout the season. I am grateful to have got to know a great group of kids and parents.
Saturday was, as usual a mix of exhilaration and disappointment. We had a strong squad of 19 players. We welcomed Will Cooper, Jacob Wideski and Gus Meymandi to the team.Our first game was against an inexperienced Dragons side. Regardless, we played really well and won handily.  
The second match was against a Cobras team who were ranked higher than us. This was an exciting back and forth match but we pulled it out in the end with great tries from Jalen and Will.
The final was against our familiar opposition - Clayton who were top ranked going into the tournament. We played them close but did not have enough gas in the tank to close it out. Clayton played well and got the ball in the hands of their best players at the right times.
All in all, finishing #2 in the State is not bad considering where we started. Virtually all our players are new to rugby this year.
I want to apologize to the younger players who did not get much playing time. I promised them a match at the end of the day and I did not make that happen - lesson learned. I am so proud of the younger kids. It is not easy to tackle and ruck against much bigger kids and takes a lot of courage. Joshua, Dylan Koons, Genie, Hanna, Rudy, Colby, and Rufus - your time will come.
For the leaving sixth graders - Dave, Murray and Toby are getting a talented group. Dylan,James, Cole, Trey and David tackled and ran hard all season. Henry and Grady had a solid midfield partnership. Gus will probably move up with his buddies if he can stay on his mountain bike.
Thanks to everyone for renewing my enthusiasm for rugby - 'the game they play in heaven"  Thanks also for the generous gift. It is perfect - my wife loves Target and I love the Hibernian. Thanks also to Heather for stepping up and handling administration - much appreciated.
I will see everyone at the barbeque and Saturday touch.
Regards,
Ivan

I am very proud of kids who excel in sports. It's not easy to focus on these things amidst the pressure of keeping up with school subjects. It is also magical that they develop teamwork and at the same time try their best to stand out without stepping on other kids' shoes. Whatever they learn from this can be applied when they are all grown up and more into serious jobs.

I'm happy that Redhawks were doing fine in their previous games, but honestly it's not a surprise for me. They've been showing a lot of dedication while playing and I couldn't agree more with the good reviews I've read about them. I know the Cobras are great players but Redhawks performance is so impressive! Special mention to Clayton who's been in the spotlight for his good playing skills!

I am a huge fan of this game really. Whenever my son wanted for an audition for this one, I am much more eager to support and be with him for his passion and happiness. Parents should be one and supportive for this activities. This is something young and adults would surely have fun too. For me, watching energetic kids playing in the ground is such a breath-taking event of my life. I feel the thrill and the combination of strength and confidence for all of them. Congratulations guys and keep up the good work!

Your muscle fibers emerge as more gradual-twitched and experienced while you train and consequently your set and rep amounts want to be accelerated even as your rest time among units wishes to decrease.
