Junior Rugby

St. Albert provides a minor rugby program administered by the Edmonton Rugby Union (ERU). All players from the age of 3-19 (male and female) are welcome to play. 

Games are, for the most part, against other member clubs of the ERU. The ERU grounds are Ellerslie Rugby Park at 11004 Ellerslie Rd SW, Edmonton.

New players are welcome to sign up anytime! Weather permitting, the season starts late April / early May and ends in mid-July for U5-U15 players. U17 and 19 players start training in June, with their first games in early July. Their season ends in late August.

A player’s age group is determined based on their age before January 1, 2020.
