Leading the way for Girls Rugby in Singapore

 

Girls Rugby.
From one player at TRC, in September 2015 , looking to play rugby with the boys’ team to now upwards of 100 girls playing across all age groups from U10 to U18, TRC is leading the way in the growth of girls rugby in Singapore.

TRC is focused on growing the number of girls playing contact by ensuring our players have as many opportunities as possible to play rugby games in Singapore and we have aligned with other rugby clubs so female players can train and play together in a program called Singapore Valkyries.

At TRC our focus is to offer excellent coaching so the girls can develop a passion for the sport while forming strong bonds on and off the pitch. TRC welcomes girls from all Rugby Clubs and all backgrounds across Singapore to attend our training sessions and the goal is to bring rugby to girls in Singapore who are inspired to be part of a team sport.

Our Girls Rugby teams train and play with commitment and our players have an opportunity to compete in international tours to Hong Kong, Bali, and Cambodia, along with competing in local Singapore tournaments.

In addition, since 2017, TRC has hosted an All Girls Rugby Tournament with teams from Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Australia playing in the one-day tournament. And, the third annual Singapore Life Girls Rugby TRC Cup will be held on December 7th 2019.

TRC runs empowering international community projects where our players have the opportunity to travel and give back to communities less fortunate. With girls from other clubs we have travelled to Phnom Penh where we took part in an initiative with Kampuchea Ballop, to bring rugby to a community of less fortunate girls. The program uses sports to build self-esteem and discipline and all of the girls that travelled from Singapore also got a lot from the trip.

Tours and Tournaments

Phnom Penh Girls Rugby Tour

Valkyries teams toured to Phnom Penh in 2017 and 2018 to play against several local teams organised and mentored by Kampuchea Balopp.  A wonderful experience for these young players to be involved and see the amazing opportunities Kampuchea Balopp provides for the children in Phnom Penh.

Playing barefoot rugby against 12 local teams they competed for the Cup in a one-day tournament and had a fantastic time doing so.

The girls will be travelling to Cambodia again in September 2019 and we are all very much looking forward to the trip.

The Singapore Valkyries have participated in the TRC Cup Junior Tournament, the TRC Cup Rugby Tournament, Centaurs Tournament and the SCC Rugby 7s Tournament since 2017.  All tournaments had our players playing against the boys' teams and doing so competitively.

In 2019 the girls have entered each of these tournaments again and, so far, have done us proud each time.
