Senior – “Train to Win” – Tues. and Thurs. nights, 6:30pm to 8:30pm
- The focus of this stage of development is on optimizing individual fitness, refining skills and peaking for major competitions. The focus of training is on optimizing performance through period-specific sessions, by addressing weak points in skills, and by continuing to learn how to “play to our strengths and attack opposition weaknesses.”
- Women’s Teams: Senior Women’s 1st XV, Senior Women’s 2nd XV
- Men’s Teams: Senior Men’s 1st XV, Senior Men’s 2nd XV
- The focus of this stage of development is on learning to perform in competition situations. This stage of development includes a focus on refining core technical skills (i.e. “getting better and better”), developing mental skills and developing decision-making skills. The focus of training is on using competition exercises to identify and address weak points in skills, as well as learn how to “read and react” to the situation.

Minor Development Program
- The focus of this program is on learning fundamental rugby skills, such as passing, catching, running, kicking and tackling. The focus of training is on introducing core technical skills and developing coordination and fine motor control.
- The focus of this program is on having fun while developing the ABCs of physical literacy – Agility, Balance, Coordination and Speed. Additionally, participants will learn how to “read” what is going on around them and make decisions during games. This program helps to build the foundation for skill development in any sport, while introducing participants to elements of the sport of rugby (e.g. rugby ball and basic contact skills, like rolling, falling and bumping).
