Good luck everyone!

Oct 1, 2021
I want to wish all the coaches and players the very best of luck ahead of the new 21/22 season. After almost 2 seasons of inconsistent rugby, I am pleased to announce that rugby officially kicks off for the club in October! Minis, Youth and Seniors will all be hoping that all the hard work during the off-season will be paying dividends in the months to come.
 
I urge the community to get behind our players and join me in wishing them the best of luck for the season.

Junior Netball continues to train at DC College this season.

Sep 13, 2021

After following various leads for new training locations within DB, we have been forced to concede to Discovery College’s new hire rates. Moving forward we will continue to explore other training options for next season. Unfortunately Covid has eliminated all other viable options for this season so we are forced to train at DC at a huge cost to the club. All of the netball section is overwhelmed by the support we have had from the Pirates and the local community, Thank you! At least we can now get the juniors training on a court, so let’s get back out there.

19 parent coaches complete the L1 course

Aug 23, 2021

 

Congratulations to all 19 of our newly qualified parent coaches that braved the heat on Sunday the 22nd of August and successfully completed the World Rugby L1 course.  
 
As the Head of Rugby, I was honoured to be able to run and deliver the course to our community.  And I was proud to see the level of professionalism and commitment that our coaches brought to the course. I wish the newly qualified coaches all the best for the upcoming season and look forward to seeing them put into practice the skills they’ve learnt. 
 
As a Rugby Club we are committed to providing the best possible experience to all of our players, as well as training opportunities to all of our coaches, so if you are interested in upskilling another L1 course will be popping up in the very near future.

Winners at 2021 Kellet Island Cup for our Dragon Boaters

Jun 15, 2021

A long and bumpy season for our stoic dragon boat cohort finally found joy last Sunday, winning first place in our first race of the season as a newly combined team with Lantau Boat Club at the 2021 Kellet Island Cup. The combined team, named the LBC Pirates, drew on experienced ladies, mens and mixed team members from both clubs. The women’s team stormed home to win on the day, with much (socially distanced) celebrating afterwards and big cup to prove it! Kudos to our passionate coach Jo Jones, and stoic steersman David Steed for getting all of us ‘over the line’! Our men’s team made it to the semifinals, so a great result for the day, and a reminder of why we train so hard and have so much fun doing it! New members are always welcome, so please get in touch with head_dragonboat@dbpirates.com if you are keen to give this crazy sport a try – men and women, all ages, all fitness levels.

Netball off to a classy new season!

Nov 3, 2020

After a very long wait, DB Pirates Netball Seniors welcomed their first game of the season this week in their classy new kit, designed locally by one of our own! Featuring a decorative skull motif across the front and back in our club colours of green and black, with a sassy white shoulder. Everyone loved getting back on the court, and although the Black Pearls, featured here, didn’t have a win, they felt winners anyway just getting out and playing after such a long hiatus.

Also featured are the Jolly Rogers, Black Jacks and Swashbucklers. Go Pirates!
