Meet the Squad event
01 July, 2017 14:35
Coventry Rugby Supporters' Club has teamed up with Coventry Rugby to plan and organise a "Meet the Squad" event to be held at BPA on Saturday 22nd July.

Principally, it will provide the opportunity for supporters to meet the full squad for the 2017/18 season. Supporters will be able to watch an open training session from Coventry Rugby Club players on the pitch.
The event is an open invitation to all, members of the Supporters' Club and non-members. Further details will be released shortly but it is intended the event will include the following:-

- The opportunity for supporters to actively participate in training drills with the players:
Kicking Drills
Passing Skills
Mini Coaching sessions for children (Community Rugby Matt Price)

(Please note details are still being finalised to ensure the safety of supporters who wish to participate)

- The opportunity to listen to the coaches discussing training drills, strategies, etc, and to have a Q&A session

The event will also include-:
- a BBQ which will be hosted by the players & coaches
- Cross Bar Challenge for Supporters
- Face Painting
- Ice Cream Van
- The Club Shop will be open
- Raffles / Tombola
- Giant Jenga
- Opportunity to meet the players face to face in an open & relaxed environment and ask any questions
- Find the Player & other competitions

The intent is to make the event a Supporters / family fun day, with active participation for all ages in selected training drills, ensuring the safety of all those participating. Alternatively, you can just watch whilst witnessing the significant progress and the development of the playing squad.

Further details will be released over the coming weeks, including precise timings and entry costs, but it is intended that the gates will be open from 10.30am onwards, with the Open Training Session commencing at 11.30am. A full schedule will be issued within the coming week.

We need to provide the raffle and the tombola with prizes. If you would like to donate a prize, please email the Supporters' Club at

This is going to be a major event in the build up to next season, and it is very much hoped that it will be enthusiastically supported. We look forward to a good day and high numbers of supporters.

There are some subtle changes which have been made to the programme for tomorrow's event, most particularly to accommodate the threat from the weather. For a final updated programme please follow the link the Supporters' Club website - []
This event will be the product of a great deal of hard work and is planned as an active fun day for all ages. With Rowland's backing and support from at least 40 players it promises to be a dynamic event and will give the opportunity for supporters to gel with the players for next season.

Unfortunately I can't attend the event, but I did have the good fortune to meet Latu Makaafi in the Village Hotel gym this afternoon. We only spoke for a couple of minutes, what a nice guy he is. Although by the look of him and what he was doing in the gym, I doubt the opposition players who'll face him on the pitch this season will think he is so nice.

Great informal event which allowed players and supporters to mingle and get to know each other.
Well done to all who played a part in putting the day together.
Well done also to Nigel on keeping the event moving despite the dodgy microphones.
A feeling of family existed - something I have experienced at club level in Ireland and at London Irish.
Talking to some of our new arrivals, it was good to see how well they were chatting to supporters and I was pleased to hear that they seem to be settling well in their new surroundings.
As supporters our job now is to ensure that we are fully behind them and that it does not become a Saturday only thing.
This feeling of family will grow more as time goes by.

We have every reason to believe that the event yesterday was an unqualified success as far as we were concerned, and it clearly met with universal approval from the supporters who attended.
It exceeded our expectations and achieved exactly what we were hoping for, in providing an opportunity for supporters to mix with the players, to get to know them, to feel part of what's going on, and therefore to be committed to the development of Coventry Rugby.
It was enough of a success for us to believe that it should be repeated in each future year.
The Supporters' Club is very grateful to all who attended and helped to create such an atmosphere of enjoyment and camaraderie.
