Youth Rugby Returns To The Pitch


Youth rugby is returning to Dauphin, albeit on a limited basis.

The U19 (2003 to 2005) and U15 (2006 to 2007) provincial programs are underway and the Parkland Pirates rugby club will be running training sessions, beginning, July 20, and continuing every Tuesday and Thursday until Aug. 19. Each training session starts at 7 p.m.

The camp is open to male and female players.

Pirates co-ordinator Aaron Miner said Brandon and Winnipeg began training sessions a couple of weeks ago.

“So we are joining in on a little bit of a development program with them, starting July 20 and ending Aug. 19,” he said. Minor noted Rugby Manitoba will host an ID camp, Aug. 21 and 22, to evaluate all of Manitoba’s rugby players that wish to attend.
