Vancouver, BC – September 6, 2018: BC Rugby is pleased to announce the upcoming TRY Rugby events, set to take place across the Island and Lower Mainland in September 2018.  These events are run by local rugby clubs with support from BC Rugby and have the express aim of introducing new kids and their families to the sport of Rugby.  Events will take place on back-to-back Sundays, September 9 and 16, as a precursor to the Mini Rugby Fall Season, which caters to children aged between 5-12.

TRY Rugby is a fantastic opportunity to experience the game of rugby in a safe, welcoming & fun atmosphere.  A TRY Rugby Event gives children the chance to play Rookie Rugby, a non-contact rugby variation that is the perfect introduction to the game for young kids.  The rugby played at a TRY Rugby event is different to what you see on televised games.  There is no contact between players and the emphasis is on fun, enjoyment, ball handling skills, socialising and exercise.  It is a great way for young people to get a first taste of the wonderful sport of rugby.

Events will be held at the following clubs over the next two weekends:

September 9th
Brit Lions & Surrey Beavers (Mainland)
Comox Valley Kickers & Westshore (Island)

September 16th
Burnaby Lake, Capilano, Meraloma & United (Mainland)
Castaway Wanderers (Island)

There is no need to pre-register for these events, just show up on the day and let your children join in the fun and games.  Start times vary from event to event, so parents are encouraged to visit for details and contact information for each host club.
