The 2018 Girls Rugby season was an opportunity for both returning and rookie players to hone their skills as rugby players.With fewer games than previous seasons, the girls team was able to experiment more with plays and new moves in practices, ultimately paying off by the end of the season where both the junior and senior teams took home silver medals in the final tournament. With over 35 members of the girls club, the FFCA rugby culture reflected the growth and popularity of the sport worldwide. The semi-annual trip to Victoria to watch the Langford Sevens Tournament also presented an opportunity to act on this growing interest in girls rugby. Fourteen of us piled into minivans and road tripped out the coast to watch and meet the world’s best women’s rugby teams, namely New Zealand and Canada. This year we also say goodbye to six graduating players. Thank you Heritage, Bri, Mikayla, Ayat, Aanchal and Naimah for your dedication and leadership over the past four years.
The Jr. Boys Rugby side had a great year of growth. We started out raw but steadily improved from both a fundamentals point of view and as a team. From some early season success in Strathmore, to teaming up with Westmount in Vulcan, to finishing strong at SCUL, we had a tonne of fun and played some great rugby!
