Rugby (resized)Rugby Sevens is a game of speed, skill and strength.  It is played by Rugby’s fastest and fittest athletes – men and women.   On January 29th, Elmira Elementary School students were able to participate in Rugby and learn about the game.   The sport was brought to the school by Doc Venter who is the coordinator for the Schools Sevens Rugby program.   Doc and his team of athletes from the University of Oregon ran drills and introduced students and staff to this upcoming Olympic sport.  The mud kept the kids sliding and laughing. As the day progressed it seemed that everyone had fun handling the oversized white football.   Doc and his crew did a great job teaching our kids. Thanks to all who helped with this assembly!
