Program Information

For the 2019 season, Rugby Ontario will continue to further expand on the successful regional model that was established in 2018.  With over 350 Jr athletes engaging in the Jr Blues program, Rugby Ontario was able to work with and develop over twice as many players as any season prior.

This year the regional model will expand to include all age grades, meaning reduced travel and additional touchpoints for all athletes selected.
