OBBRF welcomes back new and returning junior members.
While juniors are welcome to attend practices now, official start to junior rugby will be June 11th. On June 11th, we’ll be providing registration information for those not yet signed up and a parents information session after the practice. The practice will run from 6pm until approximately 7:30.
Registration details can be found in the Join section of the website. Registration fee for juniors is $250, which includes a club t-shirt.
Practices will run from 6pm to approximately 730 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday practices will be held at Merivale High School and Thursday practices will take place at Immaculata High School.
Games for both Junior Banshees and Junior Beavers will be played on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. Full schedules are attached (Jr Banshees Schedule 2013, Jr Beavers Schedule 2013). Our head coaches for the summer will be Seb Cray for the Beavers and Jen Huntley for Banshees.
We look forward to meeting you out on the pitch!
The club’s objective in running junior rugby programs is to encourage the growth of the sport and to develop players for the future. If you or your child is interested in playing junior rugby but the registration fee is an issue, please touch base with one of the contact points listed above. There are a number of volunteer hour opportunities available over the course of the season that can be used to reduce an individual player’s dues as well as to count towards high school volunteer hour requirements.
