Ravens Rugby Club is proud to support youth rugby in BC. Ravens Rugby Club hosts rugby for all age
grades throughout the club season of play, beginning early September.
All children ages 5-12. Mini rugby takes place on Sundays with events alternating between in house
practice sessions at Ravens’ home field, Jericho Park, as well as local jamborees that take place at
Vancouver clubs throughout the city. During the season the BCRU will organize several regional
jamborees which will expose the athletes to clubs from other Lower Mainland rugby hubs. Tackling is
not allowed at the U9 level, where kids play touch/flag rugby; but is coached and integrated into play at
the U10-U12 age group.

Age Grade Rugby
Note: To qualify for a specific age grade, an athlete can’t be older than the age grade indicated by the end of the season of play. For example, in the 2022-2023 season a U14 athlete cannot be older than 14 by the end of the season of play, 2023. An athlete turning 15 in 2023 is expected to play in the U16 competition.
Boys Rugby: U14, U16, U18
These age grades will practice one to two times during the week, with games taking place on Sunday’s starting mid-September through early December. The competition involves the fifteen-a-side version of rugby and is full contact. However, there may be variations of the game throughout the season.
