2016 Season Recruiting Plan
- Scrimmaging: I would like to schedule a few scrimmages with college teams around the Metro. St. Thomas, Macalester, and UWRF are a few I have in mind. Preferably, we would host a practice with these teams and work with their coaches to help them in areas they need improvement.
- Organize a tens tournament thru a large marketing campaign for late spring or early summer. We would use flyers, social media, and Pigs apparel to get the word out to college teams in the Metro area.
- If the tens tournament is unable to be organized we would promote our Sevens team for this summer to as many college rugby teams in Minnesota.
- Appear and promote the St. Paul Rugby Club at the High School Rugby Tournament this Spring.
- Ensure every new recruit has a veteran player to ask advise and help teach them the correct skills during practice.
- Start a St. Paul Pigs Linkedin page to help soon to be college or high school graduates find a job and make career connections.
