Mustangs Rugby holding 3rd annual free Rugby Day The San Diego Mustangs youth rugby club begins its 13th season in North County next month. The highly successful club plays youth rugby – the fastest growing team sport in America –and has teams for girls and boys aged 6 to 18. The Mustangs are conducting a free rugby demonstration day at Ocean Air Park, 4770 Fairport Way, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13. New players are welcome to come out and get instruction from leading coaches, including Matt Hawkins, former Captain and Coach of the USA 7’s. Activities will include all the fundamental skills such as passing, evasive running and tackling drills. Throughout the day, touch rugby will be played for each age group with the U8s starting at 9.20am. A demonstration touch game will be held at 11.30 a.m. with the U18 team taking on their coaches. Rugby is expanding rapidly across Southern California with over 50 high schools now having rugby as an ASB club sport and around 20 having girls rugby. The Mustangs run one of the largest youth programs in SoCal and have garnered a national reputation for producing high caliber rugby players and teams. Success on the field for the U18 team has led to college opportunities for a number of Mustangs alumni with players from the last few years going to college rugby programs at West Point, Cal Berkeley, Saint Mary’s and University of Arizona to name a few. All of the Mustang coaches are nationally trained and certified, and pass stringent safety
and background checks. The Mustangs has a rigorous “Coaches Coach” program run by Matt Hawkins, former coach and captain of the USA 7’s national team. Hawkins, who founded and runs a youth rugby academy –The Institute of Rugby – has both his sons playing with the U8 and U10 Mustangs. “The Mustangs Club has a philosophy of teaching the basic skills in a fun and safe environment. It is these core skills learned from a young age that provide the platform for young ruggers to reach their potential and take advantage of the many college opportunities that exist in rugby today.” Rugby 7’s, which the Mustangs have as a summer program, was recently played at the Rio Olympics with the USA finishing 5th and 9th for the women and men respectively. President David Pool commented, “Rugby has grown rapidly as a youth sport – the exposure at the Olympics along with having a PRO Rugby team in San Diego has provided the opportunity to see rugby played at a high level as well as enjoy this fast, fun game on a Saturday with your friends.” Torrey Pines, Canyon Crest and Cathedral Catholic, and many other local high schools now play rugby as an ASB club sport. Do not miss the opportunity to expose your young athletes to this fun, exciting sport right here in your own neighborhood.

Let’s Talk About Home Care. Let’s talk about how high quality, personalized in-home care can help you or a loved one. Home care can keep older adults in their homes. 9 out of 10 of seniors prefer to age in their own homes. Hiring a caregiver provides the extra support an older adult may need to stay where they most prefer: at home. Home care helps seniors stay independent longer. A caregiver provides support with activities of daily living, while encouraging mental and physical stimulation and overall wellness. They also promote safety in the home by preventing falls or other accidents. Home care is personalized to each family. Our care plans at Home Care Assistance are tailored specifically to each client’s unique needs and preferences. Caregivers are expertly matched and managed by our client care team. Caregivers are available for a few hours every day or around-the-clock. Home care supports advanced care needs. Our caregivers are experienced and trained to support older adults who are transitioning home from the hospital, recovering from a stroke or a major medical procedure, or managing chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or diabetes.
