In February of this year the Caroline Gauthier founded the Waterpark youth girl’s rugby club. This comprised of three teams, the Under 13’s, Under 16’s and Under 18’s. Following Spring training and a break during the summer they launched the new 2016/17 season last week with some pre-season fitness and skills work.
They also launched the new jerseys for the Under 13 and Under 16 teams, sponsored by Whitfield and UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre.
Trish Lane from Whitfield and Michelle Kearns from the UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre came along to mark the day and get a lesson in passing. While the formation of this new club encourages teenage girls to stay active and keep fit, it also creates new friendships and a healthy social outlet.
