RESPECT IN SPORT
Prior to registering your child with a club, parents are required to take the Respect in Sport course. This course is aimed to aid in the prevention of bullying, abuse, harassment, and discrimination (BAHD). The program’s mission is to empower participants to recognize signs of BAHD and eliminate it from the game, through a global culture of respect.
For more information or to take the course please visit the Rugby Alberta Website

The U5 age group focuses on gross motor skills such as running with the ball, kicking and learning to pass.
The U7s program begins with an introduction to flag rugby wearing tag belts, with an emphasis on learning how to pass backwards and run forwards.
Our U9s program builds on the skills learned at U7s and adds in passing between 1-2 players before a score will be allowed, kicking and offense and defense break downs
INTRO TO CONTACT
The U11s programs begin to introduce contact and tackling after the first few weeks of flag rugby and are separated into gender based teams. Safety is paramount at this level and all players are taught the best ways to tackle and receive a tackle safely.
U13 & U15
The U13 and U15s programs transition to more of a full game which includes scrums and line outs and is usually played with 13 players per side. Coaches ensure safety is a top priority and players are comfortable with contact before games begin
U16 & U18
Players at the U16 and U18 level play a full 15 a side game. Individual Player and position specific skills are taught as well as a focus on team plays, supportive team work and a higher degree of competitiveness.
