Coaches' Corner

A useful page of tips and tricks for our Rugby Coaches, as well as links to coaching resources, courses and steps to become one of our volunteer coaches. We'll help you build your skills and welcome you to an enthusiastic team who all want the best for the Pirates.

Volunteers

Help our teams be the best they can be. Volunteer some time to help us run the club, assist on match days or support our coaching teams. As a community club, we are all volunteers. We're all in this together and every very little bit helps!

Your Club Reps

The DB Pirates is a volunteer-run club. Each of the four sports nominate a Club Rep to represent their section. Club Reps meet as a group regularly to manage all-club business and plan for the club's future. Meet your Club Reps on this page. Got some ideas? Send us a message. We're all ears!

Our generous sponsors

Partnerships and teamwork is the Pirates' way. We couldn't do all this without our generous sponsors supporting and driving us forward. Find out more about our sponsors and any special offers.

Awards

At the end of each season, we honour our players, coaches and all the people who work tirelessly in the background volunteering their time and talents. There's a roll of honour for past recipients too.
See who got recognised here.

Events

(Note: Page still under construction)
The DB Pirates are a social crew, and there are always lots of opportunities to get to know each other and celebrate our victories and conquests, or lick our wounds. See what's planned for the next few months, and look back on what happened recently.
