The United Mini Rugby program plays primarily in the Lower Mainland against other clubs with Mini programs. Players are girls and boys, Kindergarten to Grade 6 (ages 4-12), and are divided by BC Rugby's Age-Grade variations. All teams are planned to be co-ed, but this can change depending on the makeup of the zone teams.
The teams progress from flag rugby at U6/U8/U10 to full contact for U12, with contact being safely introduced at Grade 5 by skilled coaches. Beyond Grade 6, players are eligible to play in our Junior program. Regardless of player age, all mini rugby games are played at the same location each week, making it easy to manage if you have multiple kids in the program. Our club plays September to December and again February/March to May.
United Rugby’s Mini season goes from September to May, with a break over the winter.
Games: Sundays at 10-11:30 am at various locations around the Lower Mainland.
Please arrive at the appointed field on game day at 9:30 am ready to warm up.
Wednesday evenings 6:30-7:30 pm at Maple Creek Middle School (3770 Hastings Street, Coquitlam).
This year we will be running teams in the following age groups:
U6/U8/U10 - Co-Ed Flag
U12 - Co-Ed Introduction to Contact
All players will be required to wear cleats (soccer cleats are acceptable) and a mouthguard to practices and games.
Players will need to purchase shorts and socks from the club at the beginning of the season. A jersey is provided with a $75 refundable deposit - when returned at the end of season in good condition.
