VANCOUVER - The 2013-14 TrueBlue Mini Rugby season will resume this weekend with a Jamboree hosted by Vancouver Rowing Club at Brockton Oval in Stanley Park. The event is set for a 10:00am kickoff and will feature teams from across the Lower Mainland.
Mini Rugby programs are run by BC Rugby member clubs, who provide a safe and fun environment for our youngest players to learn about rugby. Mini Rugby for the current 2013-14 season is for both boys and girls born in 2002 (Under-12s) and later.
The program is designed to introduce minis to the game, learn fundamental skills and provides opportunities to make new friends at a club.
Clubs across the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island are currently looking to add players to their Mini Rugby programs for the 2014 Spring season. Please note that all participating members must be registered with BC Rugby through their club.
