Minor Rugby with the OIRC

Our minor program is based upon Rookie Rugby, the nation-wide introductory rugby program for ages 5 to 12 that is a safe, fun, and inclusive non-contact sport to introduce children to rugby. Rookie Rugby is a game-based curriculum built on national guidelines for Health and Physical Education curriculum. 


Minor rugby will take place in the east end of Ottawa from 5:30-7:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Exact field location is to be determined.
