The Moncton Black Tide Rugby Football Club has organized a very exciting event at Rocky Stone Field this Friday July 5th, 2013. “This is an accomplishment that we are very proud of as we strengthen Moncton’s relationship with Rugby Canada” says past President Ali Massoudi.
Rocky Stone field will be the place to be this Friday evening if you want to meet some of Rugby Canada’s ‘rock stars’! The event will kick off at 5pm with a 2 hour coaching clinic followed by a dinner and fireside chat with the some of our sports finest. Guests from Rugby Canada include: Gareth Rees, former Team Canada Captain and IRB Hall-Of-Famer (only Canadian with this Honour); Jebb Sinclair and Chauncey O’Toole (professional International Rugby Players both from NB), Mike Chu, GM Operations and High Performance Coach from Team Canada (formally with New Zealand Rugby Union) amongst others. These elite athletes will be spending time coaching our youth and senior players and community friends while giving out some promotional items and signing autographs; Invites have been sent to all NB clubs and high-school coaches.
For over 30 years the Moncton Rugby Club (“Black Tide”) has been serving our community by engaging young and old, male and female of all shapes and sizes in one of the world’s most inclusive sports. “The beauty of this sport is that we need people of all shapes and sizes for various positions and being a not-for-profit organization we log hours upon hours of community service every year, which does sadly go unnoticed. Our club presently has 200 registered players approx 50% are youth and a slightly higher percentage are females. Moreover all the high-school teams in the area have at least one coach from our club and thus our reach is approx 500 players not including their friends and family in the Greater Moncton Area alone. We have been a pillar in the community for years, and our family extends farther than people can imagine, this event will raise our profile and give us some long overdue attention. We would like to thank our event sponsor TD Commercial Banking for their support of our youth” – Ali Massoudi.
