COST TO PLAY FOR 2013:
$TBA ALL REGISTRATIONS WILL BE DONE ONLINE AND PAYMENTS CAN ONLY BE MADE BY CREDIT CARD AT THIS TIME.
The cost to play youth rugby is $TBA. This price includes registration and insurance through Rugby Canada, referees, year end banquet and awards, and helps subsidize operating costs, such as field usage and lights fees, balls, equipment, medical supplies, field paint etc. This fee has increased since last year due to the city's new field usage fees.
If players do not own a jersey, they must purchase. The jerseys are new this year from Kukri, but the same design as previous years.
Players will need black shorts. These can be purchased independently or players can purchase ARFC black Kukri shorts. Soccerwest on George Ferguson Way also sells black shorts.
Players will need red socks. These can be purchased at Soccerwest on George Ferguson Way or through the club.
The ARFC has signed a 3 year exclusive contract with Kukri rugby wear and will be encourage our members to be fully outfitted in Kukri playing apparel (excluding cleats). Kukri is launching an online rugby store with lots of options for ARFC apparel.
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.
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.
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.
