Rugby is Returning to Saskatchewan
As of September 1st, Saskatchewan has 5 clubs delivering rugby in the province! During this gradual return to sport Sask Rugby wants to recognize and congratulate clubs – and sub-unions – that have completed sanctioning requirements in order to deliver the game we love in a safe and fun environment. To all our registered clubs who were unable to deliver rugby this season, we thank you for all your work to sustain the rugby community and hope to see you on the pitch next season.
MacDowell Rugby Academy, Regina
MacDowellRugby is a Canadian rugby academy and mentorship program focused on developing high performance rugby athletes. We are open to any skill level from beginner to experienced! During the academy sessions, you will be provided with the opportunity to gain knowledge and ask questions of our position-specific coaches who will be available throughout the length of the program. Our specialist coaches work in one-on-one and mini-unit situations with the players, so you have the opportunity to observe and interact with these position specific specialists during this time. There will be a focus on problem solving in different game situations. You will discover the intricate details of each playing position and the various roles, responsibilities, skills, techniques, and physical and mental attributes that players require to play at the highest level.
Regina Minor Rugby, Regina
Regina Minor Rugby is back! After we had to cancel our spring sessions for the high school boys and for our minis, we knew that we had to do everything we could to get going in the fall again. Our goal this year was to keep the costs as low as we could, encourage kids to come out and remember how much they love rugby! Regina Minor Rugby always wants to grow the sport of rugby in Regina and we are proud to say that we have 40+ kids aged 4 to 14 joining us on Sunday afternoons at the RRU. We are doing skill based training with the kids, while limiting contact to the best of our ability!

Gophers Rugby is happy to announce that we have been sanctioned to return to play.

About Us: Founded in 1968, the Gophers Rugby Club has a long tradition in Saskatoon of combining serious rugby with a strong social atmosphere. We pride ourselves on being a family, albeit one that also likes to play rugby. Rugby is a game of teamwork, determination, and respect. As a club, we seek to embody these values off the field as well by creating a strong and supportive network of individuals that extends far beyond the chalked lines of the pitch.
Please contact the club to get details on how to register and the specific protocols that the club is taking to combat COVID-19. Our club email is email@example.com.
