The Club’s objective in running junior rugby programs is to encourage the growth of the sport, and to develop player skills and character.
The junior girls compete in the Eastern Ontario league against the Ottawa Ospreys, Ottawa Irish, Barrhaven Scottish, and teams from the Seaway Valley. Games will start in late June and run until the end of July.
The team is open to players aged 14-18.
The OBBRFC adheres to the highest standards of player safety. In addition to following Rugby Canada’s PlaySmart guidelines and Ontario's Rowan's Law, junior players must attend a minimum of 2 practices before they can be permitted to participate in games.
As always, junior players receive a club t-shirt with their registration, as well as team shorts and socks paid for by our Club Alumni.

The junior teams practice on Mondays and Wednesdays at Glebe Collegiate from 6:30pm-8pm.
Junior dues for the 2022 season are $165, which is the absolute lowest price-point that can the Club can offer (100% of costs go towards Rugby Ontario and Canada registration insurance).
Notwithstanding, the OBBRFC junior program strives to ensure that financial reasons do not present a barrier to entry into the sport of rugby. If you or your child is interested in playing junior rugby but the registration fee is an issue, there are a number of volunteer hour opportunities available over the course of the season that can be used to reduce an individual player’s dues as well as to count towards high school volunteer hour requirements.
