Updated: Apr 25

The OBBRFC is pleased to announce our return to TD Place!


Join us on Saturday, April 30 for an afternoon of rugby festivities at Ottawa's premier sporting facility, and we have a mix of contact and non-contact activities for both junior and senior players.


The event will open at noon with a Try Rugby 101 clinic for juniors aged 14-18 years old - no experience necessary! - before we host a friendly touch rugby tournament that will include juniors and anyone else not participating for contact rugby.


We have blanket non-contact rugby insurance for the junior clinic and touch tournament, so non-registered people may participate free of charge. We do ask that no one show up unannounced, so please indicate your intention to participate in the following form: https://forms.gle/xfEmGSizDufNgK4MA
