2022 Rugby is Back! SIGNUP NOW!
The Senior season is soon starting up with our Senior men training at Vincent Massey Park until we get to Canterbury, May 17. The university players are returning from school and should be filling out the teams. Please register now as your 2021 registration ends April 30. For university girls, you can sign up for Blues, train with our U18s in June and play on an EORU combined team (Wolves, Ospreys are low on numbers so there will most likely be a combined team).
Our minors program (U6-U12) starts May 17th, Wednesday nights at Canterbury HS. For U14s we also start on May 17th at Canterbury HS, Tues & Thurs nights.
The Junior U16 & 18 boys and girls will start up the first week of June, Tues & Thur nights; boys at Canterbury HS, girls at St Patrick's HS. Signup now to reserve your spot
on Ottawa's best and only full service rugby club in central Ottawa. Schedules should be published in the next week or two, once we get information back from Rugby Quebec and EORU.
