Rugby

Mr. Assmus will be coaching rugby this year. An informational meeting was held on February 9, 2022 and the information/permission form is attached. Practices will start towards the end of February  with the season kicking off just ahead of spring break.

Who can play?

This is a pretty equitable program for all kids as there is truly a place for everybody. We go through a whole graduated introduction to contact process with the kids so no experience is necessary. There are many non-contact components as well so everyone in grade 7 and 8 is welcome. In June Mr. Assmus will offer some non-contact programming for grade 6s.
