Unfortunately, the Barbarians Rugby Club will be canceling the summer 2021 youth rugby program.
If the Covid numbers reduce or new guidelines come out, we will look at a July start and a reduced season. Please feel free to register (There is no cost) and this will put you on our mailing list.
The Dollard Barbarians Rugby Club realizes that the future of rugby rests with our youth. With this in mind we provide fun, exciting and active programs for young rugby players. The training sessions are designed to help children develop better balance, physical skills, endurance, and strength while having lots of fun. Programs are also designed with safety in mind and to better educate players about the benefits of rugby.
Rugby is one of the fastest growing sports in Quebec. It is the second most popular sport in the world, behind soccer.
Everyone is welcome – no experience necessary – BOYS AND GIRLS
This is a sport for boys and girls of every shape and size. Youth rugby is about learning the sport of rugby, meeting new friends, and getting active. Children who play rugby become: more self-confident, more disciplined, more resilient, stronger and healthier.
The Dollard Barbarians will be following Rugby Canada’s Rookie Rugby mini program.
