Harmonising the Club – Health and Wellness

Health and wellbeing in the club is important to us. We are forward thinkers and want to look after the people around us and (or attempt in the best possible way to) manage their wellness and health first of all as an individual and ultimately as a group of people. Our intention is to enhance Royal Arsenal Rugby’s members in overall club harmony, a diverse and open group.

Our hope is to:

  • Design and implement policies and procedures that improve overall health and wellbeing of an individual or a group.
  • Facilitate the management and modification of those programs.
  • Gather data and information and using that data to determine what extra steps should be taken to enhance the success of the programs put in place.
  • Work hand in hand with other club leaders to help prevent a breakdown in club communication while improving overall health.
  • Present regular updates and reports on the progress of the club and how it has improved since the implementation of programs.

In short, we want to provide tools, resources, and programs that can improve health for members simultaneously been sensitive. We believe this to be added value been part of the club promoting a positive social experience.

 

Our aim as part of our constitution.

“3. AIM The aim of the club is to improve on a member and their family, social and community life in a safe environment while having fun and been generous to the less fortunate. The wider community benefits where the club acts as a catalyst for social, environment and economic regeneration. ”

Champion’s Cup Friendly Series 2019

And you’re back. Welcome again to RA Champion’s Cup Friendly which as you know, at this stage is part of a series of matches to be played monthly on the Royal Arsenal Club calendar.(also known as home games)

This format has finally found it’s groove, we have other local tag teams gagging to come and play us. Thoughts are still lingering of the last game played with Grubber Lang where the home team Royal Arsenal were shot down.

Our fourth championship cup match to date of recent and it all kicks off today in Woolwich Arsenal as title-holders Royal Arsenal open their new account for 2019 against Beasts From the East at the MOD grounds(Barracks Field Woolwich). So far the record is 1 game lost to BFTE and one game won-so a decider match as it were today!

For tag rugby supporters across east London, the feelings of expectation are akin to a kid’s on Christmas Eve: Hope, excitement, anticipation.
