We are very excited to get back to our youth rugby program for the spring and summer of 2021!!! Training sessions for ages U5-U15 are held on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 pm at the Rockers clubhouse (6840 88 Street Edmonton, AB).
Rugby is one of the most affordable sports your child can play in a supportive, family based environment!! Registration is open and you can register HERE!
We ask you to come with your water bottle filled and children changed for practice. Parents are welcome to bring camp chairs or blankets and stay to watch, as long as social distancing is maintained between families.
The U5s are learning to coordinate running with a ball, attempting to kick and working on passing. We play a lot of games and keep them running.
The U7s will be an introduction to flag rugby with an emphasis on learning how to pass backwards and run forwards. U9s build on the skills learned at U7s and add in passing 1-2 players before a score will be allowed.
U11s begin to introduce contact and tackling after the first few weeks of flag rugby.
U13 and U15 usually move into full tackle with the addition of scrums and lineouts but again this will be COVID dependent. We will plan to run every week until mid-July and re-assess when we get later into June.
A summer season has kicked off with Saturday festivals being held for U5-U11s and Wednesday evening games for U13-15s.
