1st Rugby is 2012 CAIS and CISAA
Playing rugby at SAC
makes you part of a proud and successful tradition dating back over 45
Beginning in Middle School, our U13 squad sets the stage with a wide open,
fast running 7's league, while the U14 squad develops basic knowledge of
the 10-a-side game,
essential skills, and loads of fun: In either case no-one gets cut and everyone plays.
In the Upper School, the U16 team introduces players to competitive
rugby with an emphasis on skill development, positional and support play.
The hope is that a core group of U16 players will fall in love with this
most demanding and exciting of games and will play summer rugby with one
of Ontario's many excellent clubs or provincial teams.
By the 1st Team level we are looking to develop decision making and
tactical skills to produce a provincially competitive team. With 20
Championship seasons in the past 47 years our record is a testament to both the
program and the commitment of the players who have come through it.
Many of our players go on to play club, university and provincial
rugby, with a few rising to even loftier heights.
Something to aim for... Where do you want to take yourself?
