GIRLS RUGBY at TRC
Leading the way for Girls Rugby in Singapore
From one player in September 2015 at TRC looking to play rugby with the boys' team to now upwards of 100 girls playing across all age groups from U10 to U16, TRC is leading the way in the growth of girls rugby in Singapore.
The growth of the sport in Singapore over the last two years has been phenomenal and TRC is proud to be part of that.
To build numbers and ensure the players have as many opportunities to play in rugby games in Singapore, the rugby clubs have combined so players play for the one team, the Singapore Valkyries. This is a fantastic initiative and supported by all the clubs.
In 2017 the Girls Rugby team has been training hard and playing hard! They have been on tour to Hong Kong, Bali, and Phnom Penh, along with competing in local Singapore tournaments. In addition, to finish off what has been an amazing year TRC hosted the inaugural All Girls Contact Tournament in Singapore, with teams from Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong and Australia playing in the one-day tournament. More detail is shared below.
Training is each Sunday:
U10, U12, U14 - 9:30am - 11:00am
U17 - 9:00am - 10:30am
Please show the girl power and come and join the teams for a tryout. Bring your friends so we can have as many girls as possible playing this great game and having fun.

And remember, the first three sessions are free!

Tours and Tournaments
Phnom Penh Girls Rugby Tour
Three Valkyries teams - U10, U12, and U15 - toured Phnom Penh on a rugby tour 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.
In short, 67 tourists on tour from Singapore making up 3 Valkyries teams. Playing barefoot rugby against 12 local teams they competed for the Cup in a one-day tournament and had a fantastic time doing so.
