Merriest Christmas Eve from the Knicks family!

Our annual holiday party is fast approaching. Gather your loved ones and your best holiday cardigan and join us for karaoke and cookies this Sunday @lostandfoundalbany #beaknick #merryoke #tistheseason

Day late, dollar short...but Happy Thanksgiving to all our players, coaches, families, and supporters!
The Knicks are extra grateful for their fall season. Both teams moved down a division and saw success. The men made it to the second round of D3 playoffs, ending their season 5-2. The women picked it up at the end of their season, sneaking into playoffs, falling in the first round with a final record of 3-4. Whether they won on the field or not, the Knicks always showed up to win the socials, especially at @getruckedtroy.
Our youth program also grew - flag, middle school contact, and high school contact.
We picked up some great sponsors - @katahdinstoneworks and @dorseysigncompany. And our long time supports continued their love - NYSTEC, @getruckedtroy, @thehealingmeals, Abele Tractor, @crossfitaevitas, and @thesassydietitian.
Looking forward to off season training - fitness challenge, Wedneaday night touch, and our annual touch tournament! And our women's team's 20th anniversary! Can't wait to see everyone out there!

With Thanksgiving this week, it reminded us how grateful we are for Abele Tractor & Equipment Co., Inc.. Playing fall rugby in the north gets difficult quick with the darkness taking over 20 minutes into practice, but every year Abele lights up our lives by donating a light for our field. We literally could not do it without them, so show them some support for all your tractor and equipment needs! Thank you Abele for your continued support!

Thank you to all that attended and helped with Albany Knicks field day!!! Field aerated and seeded. Shed cleaned out and cataloged. 2 new signs posted on the shed from our fantastic sponsors Dorsey Sign Company and Katahdin Stone Works!!!

After a sad loss for the men last weekend, our women head out for the final weekend of Knicks rugby! Heading to @newenglandrugby D2 playoffs in Fitchburg, MA for a redemption match against @providencerugby. The ladies fell to this club by 1 point at their last meeting! Everyone is looking forward to a hard fought battle out on the pitch! ๐Ÿ‰
#beaknick #beasiren #playrugby #nerfu

The men and women are off to the Boston area tomorrow! The men continue their playoff run against Boston Maccabi Rugby Football Club at MIT, kicking off at 3PM. The women will kickoff at 11AM in Lynn for a friendly against North Shore Women's Rugby as they prep for playoffs next week.
In the Boston area? Swing by and cheer on your favorite guys and gals in blue and grey/white!
And if you see a bunch of ruggers in Hawaiian shirts roaming the streets of Boston tomorrow night, it's probably the Knicks headed to the Charles River Rugby Halloween Party!

Maria Brown Memorial

A week ago the Capital District rugby community tragically lost one of its Siena College Rugby ruggers. Maria Brown was the women's president and 8 man on the women's team. She passed away suddenly on September 29th. Maria's legacy will live on within the rugby community and beyond. Her obituary can be found here:

Tytan Rugby have kindly opened a store on their website for the Maria Brown memorial collection. All proceeds will go to Maria's family to cover funeral costs, and to the Brother Ed memorial fund. Our hearts our with the Siena players through this tough time. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to Maria Brown's Family Orders ship within 2-7 days of being placed

Prop Trot Race Times

We will get some pictures up soon, but here is a link to the Prop Trot Race results. Please forgive us for shorting the course (2.8mi)!

North Albany YMCA has asked us to help out with a drive for school supplies for kids in the capital region who can't afford them!
What: As of now backpacks are on very high demand because they havenโ€™t gotten many of those. But they are also taking donations of notebooks, folders, binders, pens, pencils etc. pretty much just the basic school supplies. You can also donate money here:
When: By August 10th
Where: The EC and Board will gather all donations and deliver them to the YMCA. Please bring items to any upcoming rugby event: 5K on Sunday, practices next week (Tues for Women/Tues&Thurs for Men), or Canams. Otherwise, we can set up a few drop off locations, or contact me for a pick up. Or you can take directly to the Y.
Help out our community! Capital District YMCA - Albany Branch

Rugby family is the best family! Super huge shout out to the Bergens and their business Professional Chimney Services. Recently they have made sizable donations to both the Knicks 5k and, in honor of the Knicks Legends win at Saratoga 7s, the Jonesy Trust.
So if you are looking for some chimney work, look no further! Give Professional Chimney Services a call! Support your favorite ruggers by supporting our sponsors
And don't forget about about our 5k this Sunday! We are still taking sign ups!
