*Rugby Ontario would like to thank the Toronto Arrows for providing their game field to our young athletes free of charge. We encourage all athletes and parents who plan to attend to purchase Arrows Game Tickets in advance. 2:00 pm K.O.
GOAL OF SESSIONS:
THIS IS NOT A TRY-OUT. The goal is to provide an opportunity to athletes that may not necessarily be on the Jr. Blues radar to show their stuff. (Players that have been to our Winter Academy and RO Provincial Teams are also welcome)
Focus will be Pass/Catch and Running Lines with a variety of non-contactgame play.
The final session will be a technical session focusing on 1 on 1 ruck/ball pinching work followed by RUCK TOUCH Game Play.
*Note to High School Coaches: We will not be bashing your athletes. This is purely an identification session.
HIGH SCHOOL AND CLUB COACHES:
Please encourage your BESTathletes (especially those who have not previously been involved in the Ontario Provincial Junior Program) to attend. I guarantee that they will have a great time playing with other High-Performance Athletes, as well as seeing our own TORONTO ARROWS in action.
WHAT DO THE PLAYERS NEED TO DO?
Players just need to pre-register on the link below and they will be eligible to attend (By pre-registering, Rugby Ontario will cover the players insurance).
Two great weekends of rugby development as well as watching YOUR TORONTO ARROWS in action.
See you all on the pitch.
