Updated: 2021 Minis Season is a GO! Practices Begin June 9&10

We are very excited to announce our minis program for 2021 is ready to begin! Registrations are open for U5, U7, U9, and U11 age categories. All minis players must be registered before attending any training or festival. Our minis program will be utilizing the 12-week, no contact pass being offered by Rugby Canada at a reduced rate for 2021, so please head over to the Registration Page and review the 2021 Registration Guide for a step by step process on how to register. The Respect in Sport program is also required for all parents prior to registering kids for rugby.

Pirates has successfully completed our Return to Play Plan and will be following all the Rugby Alberta and AHS protocol for youth sports. Please ensure you have reviewed the plan PRIOR to arriving at Pirates. There are some big changes during Phase 1 of reopening rugby this year such as no spectators, no facility access (except for washrooms), health check ins prior to arrival, and a traffic flow pattern requirement.

Practices will be on Wednesday’s for the U9 and U11’s (Head Coach: Katherine Poshtar) and on Thursdays for the U5 and U7’s (Head Coach: Jarret Barton) starting June 9 and 10, 2021.  There will be assigned cohorts with a maximum 10 participants with each cohort on different pitches. Here are some examples of the types of activities they will be able to participate in during Phase 1 of reopening.

See you on the pitch!
