Dear valued players, coaches, and volunteers,
Due to circumstances beyond our control, it is with great regret we announce the 2018 Rugby Alliance skills clinic will not be taking place this year.
The Rugby Alliance skills clinic has grown to be an extremely popular event and a season-opening tradition for many. But, unfortunately, we were not able to secure a suitable venue this year as all the fields and facilities that met our requirements were either booked up or closed for maintenance across the period of late April to May.
While it is unfortunate that the event is being cancelled this year, we are looking forward to hosting the youth rugby clinic in 2019 at Lamport Stadium. This will be hosted by our new partners, the Toronto Wolfpack. The Wolfpack are the world’s first transatlantic professional sports team and compete in the British Rugby Football League system. The team won League 1 and promotion to the Betfred Championship in their inaugural 2017 season.
The Wolfpack are working to support the development of youth rugby in Canada in all of its forms, driven by their vision that the world is a better place with more rugby balls in more kids’ hands. The Wolfpack have pledged their support to the Rugby Alliance network already by adorning our text logo on the sleeve of their 2018 season jersey.Despite not being able to help us deliver a specific event in 2018, the Wolfpack’songoing support for the cause includes donating their expert coaches and elite players to mentor the next generation of rugby stars across the Rugby Alliance network.
Those looking for more information on Toronto Wolfpack or to get in contact with a Wolfpack team representative can reach out through the contact form on their website www.torontowolfpack.com.
In the meantime, we will work to keep involved throughout the summer, so please check back on our website for schedule updates. For instant updates, sign up for our mailing list.
Thank you to all the players, coaches and volunteers for your continued support for the sport of rugby and your participation in our Rugby Alliance events.
The Rugby Alliance.
