We are very excited to hopefully get back to a regular season of rugby for Senior Women in the spring and summer of 2021.
We will be adhering to all Alberta Health Services, Rugby Canada, Rugby Alberta and Edmonton Rugby Union COVID-19 protocols and precautions in our Return to Play plan. Once we are approved to return to play, training sessions will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-8:00 pm at the Rockers clubhouse (6840 88 Street Edmonton, AB) starting as soon as the snow melts.
Games are usually held Saturday afternoons and Wednesday evenings. Previous seasons have ran from the beginning of May to the middle of September with the exception of long weekends.
Rugby is one of the most affordable sports you can play in a supportive, family based environment All are welcome – NO experience is necessary – just a willingness to learn! We are an LGTBQ+ friendly club and encourage everyone to come out and try a session with our team! We hold several fun, inclusive social events through out the year including games nights, karaoke, Club Nights with themed food and drinks, ski/board trips, and much more!
The Senior Women have previously been coached by two internationally known rugby players: Forrest Gainer and Jen Kish.
Forrest Gainer played for Rugby Canada and was scouted to play professionally in Europe for more than a few years. Forrest’s rugby career has taken him to many countries including Ireland, France, Germany & Chile. Since retiring from playing rugby professionally, Forrest has been coaching in the Edmonton Rugby community. His expertise and intensity has led the Rockers to Edmonton city semi-finals over the last two years.
Jen Kish is most recently known for her Olympic efforts at the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro and her representation at the Canada level for over 10 years.
