Local Rugby Thrives Thanks to Key Sponsors

Date: March 15, 2018


As young rugby players prepare for another great spring season of play, we would like to recognize those local businesses that make the game affordable for kids.

Touch Rugby
For the fourth year in a row, three local businesses will contribute $3,000 to fund the local mini-rugby, elementary touch, and community touch sevens programs.  Their contributions have made the mini-rugby, elementary touch, and community touch programs very affordable for over 500 young players.  Local rugby thanks the following businesses for their touch rugby support:

Capri Insurance (Robin Durrant)
Code Three Emergency Vehicles (Eric Heffernan)
Columbia Bottles and Recycling (Clare Cassan)

CORD Academy
The following businesses and individuals have each contributed $400 to make the off-season rugby development program affordable to young male and female players.  Local rugby thanks the following businesses and individuals for their CORD Academy support.  More than 45 U12, U14, and U16 players can afford 24 hours of off-season training (much of it in the soccer dome) thanks to their annual contributions.
