For the 2018 rugby season, players will see a reduction in the registration costs. The savings range from 32% - 95% on the club portion of the fees, as the Rugby Ontario and Rugby Canada fees are set.
The reason we are able to offer our fees at such a low cost is due to the hard work and dedication of our board, players and parent volunteers.
Our main fundraising efforts have come from our partnership with Domino's, which included selling pizza cards and space on our jersey's.
Our second and newest fundraising partnership is with OLG RAMA Meadowvale which began in December 2017. By volunteering at bingo for a few shifts every month, the club receives approximately $1200 to $2000 per month that will be allowed for use in enhancing our Youth Programs at our club. In offsetting our youth costs, we will be in a better position to reduce costs for the Senior Programs.
Cost can often be a barrier for to playing organized sports which is why it was a priority for the Blues to ensure our costs were as low as possible.
We are hoping that these lower registration fees keep players within our club and encourage new players to try out rugby, which is one of the fastest growing sports.
Registration fees are as follows and include shorts, a warm up shirt and insurance. (Sport Lomo System fee not included)
