Junior Rugby at Balmy Beach

Junior Rugby at Balmy Beach RFC is an excellent introduction and development program at one of Canada’s most successful rugby football clubs. Our junior players have gone on to represent their club at the McCormick Cup, the province of Ontario and Canada at the Rugby World Cup. We have a dedicated team of NCPP Level 1 & 2 certified coaches and look for players, parents and supporters who are committed to making a positive contribution in an environment that fosters mutual respect, sportsmanship and a lasting love of the game.

We offer co-ed teams from U8 to U14, with separate boys and girls teams starting at the U16 level. The season runs from April to September depending on the age level, with opportunities to play festivals and host international touring sides.

Players can start at Mini-Rugby (U8/10), a modified flag-version of 7’s played on a smaller pitch. We emphasize, fun, friendship and development of the core skills needed to enjoy and advance the game.

At U12 modest contact is introduced, along with uncontested scrums and lineouts as the players continue to develop towards the full 15 player Union rules game.

From U14 onwards, players compete as a 15-a-side squad on a full-sized pitch with modified rules to encourage safety and correct technique.

On-line registration is open in March through Rugby Canada (link to be posted when available). We also host an in-person session in April at the Balmy Beach Club to give our players a chance to meet their coaches before the start of the season (dates to be provided).
