Spring 2015 Youth Rugby Programs

It's time to list our Youth Rugby Programs.

Girls & Boys Under 10’s (Gr. 3 & 4, 9 or 10 as of as of Jan. 1, 2015) & Under 8’s (Gr.1&2 (6, 7, 8 as of Jan. 1, 2015)

Flag rugby is a program to introduce players to the essential skills of passing, catching, running and team play which are necessary to be successful at any level of play and sport. A player is stopped when their flag is taken. Play resumes with a pass from the stopped player to his/her team mates—there are no scrums. After five stops the ball is turned over to the opposing team.

In May the Rugby Club will have a House League Flag Rugby program open to girls and boys ages 6 -14.  The sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 – 6:30.  Registration in the “May Program” provides insurance coverage and membership in the Canadian Rugby Union.  This format will allow children, new to the game to,” try it out at a reasonable cost as well as providing returning players time to improve on skills and have some fun   At the end of the four week session players and parents can decide to continue with the traditional program through the summer or stop at that point.  There is an additional cost to continue in the traditional May – Sept. schedule.  Participation in tournaments is optional for players and their families.  Playing time at tournaments is guaranteed as the Club can enter several teams.

In August, a Flag Rugby program (U8, U10 Girls & Boys), will be offered.  It will operate much like the House League Program in May. Players who played in the May program are welcomed to join this at a reduced fee.  We are hoping to run this program at Wilson Fields in order to make it even more accessible to the youth of the area.

Modified Contact/Tackle Rugby -Girls & Boys U12’s (­Gr.5&6, 11 or 12 as of Jan. 1, 2015)

Skill development (running, passing, catching) are still the focus of his program. Tackling and contact are introduced in a safe and progressive manner. Modifications to the regular game have been made to ensure safety. For example, scrums and line - outs are uncontested.  When a player is tackled they are allowed to stand up (no play while a player is on the ground) and play resumes with a pass to the tackled player’s team. Tackling will be taught in a safe, controlled and progressive manner.

During sessions, players will rotate through skills activities for the first part of the session and play games during the second part. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 6:30. The schedule in the past has run from May to Sept. with teams entered in tournaments with other Rugby Clubs. There are programs for Under 14 Boys (Gr.7&8) and plans for an Under 15 Girls.

In August, a Flag Rugby program (U8, U10 Girls & Boys), will be offered.  It will operate much like the House League Program in May. Players who played in the May program are welcomed to join this at a reduced fee.  We are hoping to run this program at Wilson Fields in order to make it even more accessible to the youth of the area.

Support Bingo Bingo!

Sunday is our night for Bingo Bingo to support the junior programes at the club. As a revenue generation, it has been the mainstay of the juniors but is in decline. We need to support Bingo, so consider once or twice this season to get a group of friends together and go to Bingo Bingo on a Sunday. See our calendar here.
