New Players are always Welcome!
Registration is now open for Summer 2021 Outdoor Season.
The U11 program is currently co-ed and is 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 registration fee is reduced in 2021 as it is unlikely we will get to play full contact rugby. In order to reduce waste, shorts and socks are not included in the fee. We encourage returning players to reuse any shorts and socks they may have from the previous season. New socks and shorts will be available at the field for purchase (socks $10, shorts $25-$35).
The socks and shorts should be worn to all games. 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. All jewelry should be removed or covered with plasters at the very least and long hair should be tied back.
Further gear can be purchased at our store however, it is not essential to play the game: https://bowvalleyrugbyclub.entripyshops.com/
A child's age grade is determined by their age on January 1 each year. i.e. A child that turns 11 years old on January 2, would still fall under a U11 registration even though they are 11 years old at the start of the summer season.
Mondays and Wednesdays 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).***
THIS IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO AHS OUTDOOR SPORT RESTRICTIONS.
The season should have started at the beginning of May but has been delayed to AHS Outdoor Sports Restrictions and runs through to end of June. 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.***
Under 11s will be added to Teamsnap once they register for the summer season to enable ease of communcation.
New players are always welcome to come along and chat with players/coaches before registering.
