With a successful regular season in the books, it's time to start training for next season's slate of matches. We'll be conducting winter workouts at YSC again this year - it'll be a great way to not only stay in shape, but get in better shape before next season and give us an even greater advantage once the matches begin.

Hail Whitemarsh ... Hail Philadelphia Rugby Club.
