Rookie Rugby Girls


Rugby Manitoba is proud to announce our first ever, Rookie Rugby Girls program. This pilot program will be launching this Nov.15th in Steinbach, MB.

The program will run a variation of Rookie Rugby directed and geared towards girls between the ages of 9-14 years old. Rookie Rugby Girls is a non-contact, flag version of the program.

Each practice will incorporate empowering activities and help promote self-esteem, confidence and provide the young ladies the opportunity to do so while learning the game of rugby.

Our program leaders for this initiative are past players from the Steinbach Regional Secondary School Rugby Sevens programs. A program which launched last spring with such success that the school was able to roster two highly competitive teams last spring in their inaugural season.

Programs will run weekly on Wednesday nights from 7 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. at the Southwood School Gym.

Program dates: Nov.15th, Nov. 22nd, Nov.29th, Dec.6th & Dec.13th

Cost: $25 per child payable by cheque or cash by the first session.
