The Rainier Junior Rugby Club hosts a prospective parent/player informational meeting on Saturday, Dec. 14, from 2:30 to 4 p.m., at the Auburn Library, 1102 Auburn Way S..

The intent of the meeting is to familiarize anyone who may be considering or looking for a sport for their children to play come spring.

Club founder Andy Ramsay will provide a general overview and field questions at the meeting.

“People are welcome to come anytime in the time period … and leave when they have the information they need,” Ramsay added.

The club, a nonprofit organization, offers opportunities for kids in grades 1-12. There are no school boundary restrictions and no cuts.

Teams include a U10 coed (non contact); U12 coed contact; U14 boys; U14 girls; and high school girls and boys (all contact). Teams practice in the same location, usually Auburn Memorial Stadium, twice a week starting at 6:30 p.m. The season begins in mid-January and ends in May for the high school and U14 teams. The younger teams will start the season later but end play in May.

Affordable membership fees including sibling discounts and a reduced fee program that families can apply for. More information about the club can be found at rainierjuniorrugby.com, on Facebook or contacting Ramsay at a.s.ramsay@comcast.net.

The club also runs a non-contact rookie skills camp for boys and girls of all ages from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 11 at Auburn Memorial Stadium. It is free. There is no preregistration.
