VANCOUVER, BC - The TrueBlue Mini Rugby Jamboree schedule has been confirmed for the Fall 2013 season with four events being held around the Lower Mainland and several jamboree events on Vancouver Island.

The Island mini season is already underway as Comox hosted the season kick off this past Sunday. For the Lower Mainland, the full season launches at Jericho Park on Sunday, September 29th, with the UBCOB Ravens hosting.

Mini Rugby programs are run by BC Rugby member clubs, who provide a safe and fun environment for our youngest players to learn all about rugby.  Not only do the "minis" learn the fundamental skills, they are provided the opportunity to make new friends at their club while competing in "mini rugby jamborees".

Minis are those players who are born in 2002 or later (for the 2013/14 season). Mini dues for the season are currently $75.25 + club  membership fees.  All players must register with BC Rugby through their club.
