Girls rugby meeting
Coming off of a season that saw it take third in its division, the Davis girls rugby team is hoping for an expanded roster in 2014 and is now accepting registration.
Local girls who play on the team will be able to earn a varsity letter playing a sport that will be in the 2016 Olympic Games. There is no experience necessary to play and there is a spot on the team for everyone, regardless of prior athletic experience.
Girls in grades nine through 12 who attend school in the Davis Joint Unified School District are eligible to be on the team. An information night for players and parents is set for Tuesday, Nov. 5, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Davis High School library, 315 W. 14th St.

The Davis Aquatic Masters team is recruiting new members ages 18 and over who are interested in swimming in a coached workout environment. With 650 members, the local club is the second-largest masters swim team in the country.
DAM offers 10 one-hour workouts daily, two on Saturday and six additional hours of open swim on the weekend — all but one at the heated Civic Center Pool at Russell Boulevard and B Street. Workout participants are grouped by ability and, while the majority of DAM members swim for health and fitness, pool and open-water competitions are available.
Instruction comes from head coach Stu Kahn, who was voted USMS Swim Coach of the Year in 2012, along with his wife Mary and three other part-time coaches.
For swimmers who want to check out the club, DAM is offering the first three workouts for free. Parking and dressing room and shower facilities are also available.
