The Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club hits the pitch for tomorrow for Rugby 101, its introductory session for newbies looking to learn the sport.
The event, which opens at 9 a.m. at Coan Middle School in Kirkwood, also serves as the unofficial start of the club’s fall season, which opens Sept. 13 on the road in Chattanooga. The club wants to build on the momentum of capturing a trophy at the Bingham Cup in June.
“We’ve got a really solid core of players and we want to build on that,” says Bullet Manale, the club’s president. “Everyone is excited after Bingham and we had a really good year. We are taking the right steps to a year or two down the line to be competitive across the board.”
