Dear Junior Rugby Players and Parents,

Despite the poor spring weather, the coaches and management teams for each respective program are ready to kick-off the 2018 Rugby Ontario High Performance Rugby Season.

A great deal of planning has gone into the upcoming season. The Cross-Border Series presented by the University of Guelph (July) and "AAA" Ireland / "AA" Nova Scotia Tours (August) are all booked, budgeted and ready to go.

With this in mind, we felt that it is very important to communicate an estimate of the costs that families will need to budget over the coming months. You can find all relevant budget documents below. By getting these numbers out early (with set payment dates and Rugby Ontario supported fundraising opportunities) we feel that it provides the support that families will need for their High Performance athletes.

Please review all budgets, fundraising initiatives and payment timelines for the Southwest, "AA" and "AAA" programs found below.

We have also confirmed dates and locations of the upcoming open sessions. Please see the 2018 Jr. Blues Program-Wide Training Schedule or visit your desired team page at

To attend an open session, you must register and pay the registration fee by following your registration link on your age's team page (links below):
