Ravens Rugby Club is proud to support youth rugby in BC. Ravens Rugby Club hosts rugby for all age grades during various periods throughout the school year.
Ages 5-12. Mini-Rugby is held on Sunday only and alternates weekly between practices held at the Ravens' home fields next to Jericho sailing centre, and regional tournaments (called Jamborees) held throughout Vancouver and the lower-mainland. Tackling is not aloud in Mini-Rugby, during this time the kids play: "touch-rugby," only. Mini rugby is co-ed.*
