We are very excited to get back to a regular season of rugby for Senior Women in the spring and summer of 2022. Rugby is one of the most affordable sports you can play in a supportive, family based environment.
All are welcome – NO experience is necessary – just a willingness to learn! We are an LGTBQ+ friendly club and encourage everyone to come out and try a session with our team! We hold several fun, inclusive social events through out the year including games nights, karaoke, Club Nights with themed food and drinks, ski/board trips, and much more!
Training sessions are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Rockers clubhouse (6840 88 Street Edmonton, AB) starting in mid-April (dependent on snow melt).
Games during the summer of 2022 will be held Saturday afternoons starting May 14 and running until the middle of September with the exception of long weekends.
The Senior Women have previously been coached by two internationally known rugby players: Forrest Gainer and Jen Kish.
Forrest Gainer played for Rugby Canada and was scouted to play professionally in Europe for more than a few years. Forrest’s rugby career has taken him to many countries including Ireland, France, Germany & Chile. Since retiring from playing rugby professionally, Forrest has been coaching in the Edmonton Rugby community. His expertise and intensity led the Rockers to Edmonton city semi-finals in 2018 and 2019.
Jen Kish is most recently known for her Olympic efforts at the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro and her representation at the Canada level for over 10 years.
