Athletes interested in playing football for the Blue Devil program next fall, along with their parents, should attend a mandatory preseason meeting on Tuesday at 6 p.m. in the Davis High library.

At the meeting, players will have a chance to meet the coaches and get information on the upcoming season.

Davis Rugby Club

The Davis Rugby Club is organizing boys varsity- and JV-level teams to play in Rugby 7s tournaments in the Sacramento area this June and July.

For interested athletes, there will be an informational meeting on Tuesday, April 29, from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St., in Davis.

Players currently in ninth through 12th grades are eligible to participate and no rugby experience is necessary. Practice is expected to start in mid-May.

Recently re-introduced as an Olympic sport for 2016, Rugby 7s is a fast-paced version of the game with short running halves, requiring speed, strength and endurance. The Davis squad will be coached by Mike Purcell, a former USA National Rugby 7s team player and captain.

For more information, call Mike Goodison at 530-902-1312.

Junior Blue Devils

The Davis Junior Blue Devils will host a pair of information nights in the next few weeks for interested families to learn about the youth tackle football and cheer program.

The meetings are set for Thursday from 6:30 to 9 p.m., and Saturday, May 10, from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Both are in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St.

Registration for next season — which is open to players and cheerleaders ages 6-14 — opens on May 1. For more information or to register, visit www.juniorbluedevils.com.
