FALL 2020 TEAMS
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic the Abbotsford Rugby Football Club will be offering youth girl’s rugby sessions on Monday and Wednesday from September through to December. Practices are from 6-7pm at Delair Park. Practices are skill focused and will have small non-contact games played throughout the year. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, no contact games against other clubs can be played. Each player must be registered and submit a daily health check before coming to the field. Each group is limited to 45 players.
(Sept - December 2020) All teams are dependant upon numbers.
u16: @ Delair, 6-7pm

PLAYING FEES ($75 Sept 2020 - Dec 2020)
This price includes registration and insurance through Rugby Canada and BC rugby, and helps subsidize operating costs, such as field usage lighting fees, balls, equipment, medical supplies, field paint etc. These fees do NOT include shorts and socks
Team jerseys are supplied by ARFC
Players will need black shorts (these are not supplied by the team) These items are available at Soccerwest on George Ferguson.
Players will be expected to wear red socks (these are not supplied by the team) These items are available at Soccerwest on George Ferguson.
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 and HEAD GEAR)
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. 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.
