New Players are always Welcome!
Registration is now open for Summer 2019 Outdoor Season. Click here to register.
The minis rugby programs are all co-ed with the U7 and U9 programs being non-contact tag rugby (aka flag rugby) and the U11 program, being an introduction to contact rugby. The aim for all our minis programs is to achieve the goals set out in the Rugby Canada Long Term Athlete Development Plan with an emphasis on personal development and what we call ‘Fundamental Team Identity’. Fundamental Team Identity covers our primary objectives, being Fun, sportsmanship, team work, respect and discipline, inclusivity and hard work.
The cost for 2019 season is $189 ([plus Sportlomo registration fees). This fee includes a shorts and socks and insurance for the whole season (summer and fall).
The socks and shorts should be worn to all games on Saturdays. Cleats are also required - please ensure they are soccer cleats i.e. they must not have the extra toe cleat required for some other sports. Mouthguards are essential at both games and training as Under 11s play contact. All jewelry should be removed or covered with plasters at the very least and long hair should be tied back. The reduced fall rate does not include shorts and socks but does include insurance. Anyone joining for the fall season can purchase socks and shorts for the season if they would like but they are not compulsory.
A child's age grade is determined by their age on January 1 each year. i.e. A child that turns 9 years old on January 2, would still fall under a U9 registration even though they are 9 years old at the start of the summer season. There is an option for a child to play either higher or lower than their age grade. This is determined by height, weight and experience. If you feel your child fits into this category contact F Horton at email@example.com as forms and assessments may have to be carried out for safety purposes
Mondays between 6.00pm - 7.00pm at Mitford Ponds, Cochrane
Saturdays 9:30am - 10.30am at Calgary Rugby Union, 9025 Shepard Rd SE, Calgary, AB T2C 4R6 (this can sometimes overrun depending on the number of teams available to play).
The season starts on April 29th and runs through to June 24th. We break for summer then we resume back at the end of August and run through to the end of September.
***All of our dates are dependent on the weather. If the fields are covered in snow or waterlogged then the Town of Cochrane may delay the opening. The best way to always find out about field closures is to ring 403 851 2552 option 2 after 4pm on every practice day. We will always try to get word out to our teams in time via Facebook and Teamsnap but for those travelling a great distance please do check this line before you travel. CRU very rarely closes but if they do decide to for whatever reason, notification will generally go out Friday evening and ,of course, we will get word to you through Teamsnap.***
Juniors and minis will be added to Teamsnap once they register for the summer season. All dates and locations are already inputted for the season.
New players are always welcome to come along and chat with players/coaches before registering. As this age level play contact rugby, they would only be able to play once registered.
