Welcome Members, Supporters and Friends,
The 2016-17 season is nearly upon us and after a hugely successful Tag Rugby tournament, organised and administered by John Traynor and family, thank you John, the focus now turns to the preparation and training for the competitive season ahead.
After the disappointing end to last season and relegation to the Division J2, concentration must now be directed to regaining promotion to Division J1.
A new and refreshing coaching structure is introduced involving many ex senior players including John Molloy as head coach, Nigel Daly, Neil Kennealy, Jerry Miller and many others from within the club coaching talent. This compact and dedicated group will give impetus and encouragement to the players throughout the entire club.
As President of Waterpark I ask all members supporters and friends to give your full support to all our teams during the forthcoming very competitive season.
The Youths set a standard last season that will be hard to follow but the coaches and parents wish to emulate this success at least. Waterpark RFC was honoured with award of the Munster Rugby "Youth Club of the Year" for the 3rd time in 10 years, an incredible achievement in itself.
The importance of the Mini's cannot be stressed enough; they are the bedrock on which the club has progressed since their inception, many seasons ago. The dedication of both coaches and parents is so essential to the growth and knowledge of the wonderful game that rugby is.
The "Waterpark Newsletter" will keep everybody updated with fixtures, results, social events, and any contributions to it will be gratefully appreciated.
Part of my portfolio as President of the club is lend a helpful ear to any suggestions, concerns or other matters pertaining to club business and I promise these will get the attention deserved.
I also appeal to all members to submit their subscriptions at the earliest opportunity so that we can fulfil our commitment to bring the best of rugby to Waterpark.
To our very generous and patient sponsors and advertisers, a grateful thank you for your continued support,
Yours in sport,
