Stop the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and keep yourself and others safe.
The Pumas are committed to preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus and ask that all players, staff and supporters adhere to the Government guidelines.
On the 24 Sep 2020, the Track and Trace App was launched and organisations were directed to monitor the movement of members within their venues using the App in conjunction with the venue QR Code.
The Pumas have instigated this process at our training ground at Hook-with-Warsash CoE Primary School. In the future before training, players are to scan the Track and Trace QR Code which is displayed just inside the 'Shed'.
When playing in other locations such as Hunt Pond Road a copy of the QR is to be made available and 'all' attending are to scan in. As already instigated we will need to continue to keep a register of names too for the time being.
The sooner we get through this epidemic the soon we play ruby again, so, please adhere to the advice being provided.
For the England Autumn Nations Cup Internationals we are now inviting you to our "Puma Party" to support the England team.
Watch the game in the comfort of your own home on Amazon Prime (you need a seperate subscription), but join your Puma Clubmates in our virtual party room.
Bring your voice, bring your alcohol and bring your banter. The Puma Party room is open to all members (even the Welsh ones) for the entire game. If this is a success and something you want we can set this up for ALL nations games over the next month so you can share your banter.
Share this post with any existing or old members as would be great to reconnect with anyone that has been a Puma.
It was with great pleasure that we presented a cheque for £500 to Fareham Community Hospital our local NHS facility.
Following the great work shown by the NHS during the first wave of the pandemic the Pumas want to offer something back. The result was to commission a new Shirt and Vest top showing the united NHS rainbow on the design. The tops were made available to both the senior and Puma Cubs sections of the Club.
The profit on the tops reached £250 and the Committee decided to match the amount raised.
This initative is only one of a number of activities the Pumas are doing within the local community.
Many thanks to Puma Cubs Chair Hayley Selby for nominating Fareham Community Hospital.

Pumas help a great cause
After a very successful 2019-20 season the Pumas literally clear the way for the new season by gifting 30+ tired rugby balls, a set of post protectors and a season or two of old but serviceable boots to charity.
The charity this year are the Tag Rugby Trust who in a few days time will send a container of sports gear to Zambia where children and young adults will reap the rewards.
Essentially, Tag Rugby Trust implement a strategy to ENGAGE, EDUCATE and IMPACT – and in that order. The scale of the initial engagement is important, as mass participation in the sport provides a large and enthusiastic audience… education follows, and the impact is profound.
Following the UK Governments vote to put the whole of the UK back into lockdown Rugby finds itself back at STAGE A on the Return to Rugby chart.
Immediately all training and playing (Touch Rugby) sessions will be stopped. No Puma may gather with another to undertake any rugby activity outside of 2 people training together at a social distanced space.
The full RFU briefing is below.
But we are a rugby family and if the new Puma Support group wish to continue to meet up we are able to do so. Please continue to watch the Club WhatsApp group for further announcements and times these sessions will run. I urge anyone struggling at this time to make use of this opportunity to meet up in a social distanced enviroment. All discussions are completely confidential.
