Provincial Programs

Hello ladies,I realize that with all this snow on the ground that everyone’s mind isn’t shifted towards rugby quite yet.  However Rugby Manitoba is holding indoor sessions where we can.  I apologize to those who may need to travel a little extra due to not having access to proper fields yet and limited space available to us for indoor use.

I would recommend that if you want to get involved in Provincial rugby that you contact the coaches and let them know your intentions.  We are having some good players come out so far but we need to have more.

U18 girls Westman RUSH regional Team

The Westman Rush is a U18 Regional girls team, which will compete against other regional teams from Manitoba and Saskatchewan in thePrairie Regional ChampionshipsJuly 12-14 in Brandon, MB..  This is a great opportunity to develop your skills and to play rugby beyond the school and community level.  As a player, you will learn new rugby skills and be exposed to a positive team environment along with a coaching staff, which will help you achieve your personal and team goals.
 
If you intend to participate in the program or have any concerns, please contact Kathleen Muirhead or Kiya Towsend as soon as possible.

MB Sr Womens Training Sunday Cancelled

Weather is not cooperating, and gym space was challenging to get. Next training April 21st in portage. For more details contact coach Chris Chapman (chapper55@shaw.ca)

U18 Boys Westman Regional Team

I have heard from a few athletes, in the boys U18 category, that want to play PRC rugby this summer.
 
I would like everyone that is out there, playing in Westman, to have a chance to be a part of this program. With Sean Common as the backs coach, we have one of the best rugby minds in Manitoba at their disposal. I will obviously bring the average down, but these boys will still have a great experience, play some exciting, high-paced rugby, and if they want to - place themselves nicely for selection to the provincial U18 men's team that will be going to play at UBC in August!

Prairie Regional Championships- Westman Teams

The Prairie Regional Championships will be held inBrandon, MB at John Reilly Field onthe weekend of July12-14, 2013.  The PRC is a regional rugby competition with U16 and U18 categories for both boys and girls.  Regional teams participating will be announced later, but they will hail from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and possibly the United States. 
 
This is a great opportunity for athletes to develop their skills and to play rugby beyond the school and community level.  The players will be exposed to a higher level of competition and potentially identified by Provincial, National and University coaches.
