COSTS AND EQUIPMENT

COST TO PLAY 2009-10 (Sept 1 to Aug 31): $175 (Cheques to ARFC)
* please note that if money is an issue, please come out and talk to the coach about options

PLAYING FEES: The cost to play rugby this year is $175. This price includes registration and insurance through Rugby Canada ($115), referees, year end banquet and awards, and helps subsidize operating costs, such as balls, equipment, medical supplies, field paint etc.  This fee has increased slightly since last year as Rugby Canada increased the insurance rates.

JERSEYS: If players do not own a jersey, they must purchase one at the online Kukri store coming soon. The jerseys are new this year from Kukri, but the same design as previous years. 

SHORTS: Players will need black shorts. These can be purchased independently or players can purchase ARFC black Kukri shorts for available at the online store coming soon. Soccerwest on George Ferguson Way also sells black shorts.

SOCKS: Players will need red socks. These can be purchased at Soccerwest on George Ferguson Way or through the Kukri online store coming soon.

MOUTH GUARD: It is mandatory that players wear a mouth guard on game days. Mouth guards molded at the dentist are most comfortable and can be acquired at Venier Dental or most dental offices. Soccerwest on George Ferguson Way also sells mouth guards.

CLEATS: Players will need cleats, especially in wet weather. We recommend having a pair with long studs for the fall season. Many rugby players wear soccer cleats. Metal cleats are fine as long as they do not have a toe cleat (football cleats) or sharp metal (some baseball cleats). Cleats can be purchased at most sporting goods stores, including Soccerwest on George Ferguson Way.

OPTIONAL GEAR (SHOULDER PADS, HEAD GEAR AND STICK MITS): Some players choose to wear additional safety gear, but these items are not mandatory. Items such as shoulder pads and head gear offer additional protection and some players find stick mits help with handling. These items are available at Soccerwest on George Ferguson.

OPTIONAL CLOTHING: It is recommended that players have clothing for all types of weather. Practices are rain or shine, so track suits and practice jerseys that can get dirty may help athletes perform in cold weather. Some players also like to wear 'sliders' or spandex shorts under their rugby shorts, which again is optional. Soccerwest carries such items and will also be carrying a variety of ARFC apparel items in September.
