Senior Rugby

The Pirates offer senior rugby programs for both Men and Women. We welcome experienced and new players and have a policy of playing those who come to practice.

We will be offering the following teams for the 2017 season:

Men- one Third Division team
Women – one Premier team and one Second Division team

Coaching:

Senior Men: TBD

The Pirate men are currently going through a coach search for the 2017 season.  Please see the 2017 Mens Coach Posting for more details and feel free to share with anyone who may be interested.

Senior Women: Randi Hamre

This will be Randi Ross-Hamre’s second season coaching with the Pirates.  She comes with many years experience coaching teams in Edmonton and Alberta, including the U of A Pandas, ERU Gold teams, and Rugby Alberta Representative teams.  Randi is looking forward to the challenge that adding a Premier team to the women’s side will bring.

Fees:

Senior Dues (2017 season): $410 (plus service fees associated with online registration).  There is also a volunteer expectation where all senior members will serve on one (or many) committees that help manage club activities.  To sign up for a committee, please see your team representative.

Players will not be able to play in games until online registration is completed.

Season schedule:

Games will begin in May for both men and women’s programs and run through September/October, depending on playoffs.  Outdoor practices commence as soon as the fields are clear of snow, usually sometime in April.

OUTDOOR TRAINING:  Women will train on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Mens’ trainings will likely be the same days and times, dependent on the TBD coach.  Be there to warm up and stretch around 6:30 PM, training begins @ 7 PM.  All outdoor training occurs at the Pirates fields (1904 – 167 Avenue).  All current members (including social — $50/year) are invited to attend.  Anyone who is interested in trying the sport out is also welcome to attend — please contact our VP’s of Senior Rugby (see contact page) for more information.
