Seattle Saracens Rugby Club is excited to announce that the 2017/18 season will see the formation of the Seattle Saracens Development XV.
This new development program and team is directed towards young players and will act as a transition from youth rugby to senior rugby. The program will not only develop players to play for the Seattle Saracens club but also for other clubs that the Seattle Saracens is partnered with.
The development squad will compete against senior and collegiate teams in the Pacific NW and provide additional rugby opportunities for players and clubs in the region. The development team management will work with its partner clubs to ensure more people can play rugby on a regular basis.
The formation of this program will build stronger relationships with youth programs in the area and provide opportunities for these players to develop and grow on and off the pitch in a rugby rich environment. In turn, the Seattle Saracens believe that providing more games to local players and clubs will ultimately help raise the level of competition in the area.
“We have wanted a program like this for many years and we are now ready to implement one. With the help and input of other local clubs, our goal is to be able to ensure more people are playing rugby on a weekly basis. The club is committed to not only providing more rugby but also to promote rugby values and club culture through participation in our community programs. We believe this will help players grow and mature both in their game and in their day to day life”, said Seattle Saracens President, Kevin Flynn.
