Registration is now OPEN!
FLRFC's winter training academy registration is now open.
Please note: This academy is for birth years 2009 and older.
Due to COVID restrictions, there are only 46 spots intended for full-time athletes; training will be Tuesdays and Fridays starting on Tuesday, November 17th, 2020 and continuing until mid-February. Schedule will be posted on the calendar on our website. We are still waiting to see the final schedule, but it is expected that we will need to run Saturdays in High River during January if tournaments are booked at the Crescent Point Fieldhouse. Final details to follow as they are determined.
If you can't attend full-time, or the full time spots have already been taken, please register on the wait list. If the current provincial guidelines change or if anyone can't complete the training commitment, we will use the wait list to fill empty spots. As usual, our preference is to get everyone playing but we are currently being restricted due to government regulations.
All activities will be completed at the fieldhouse this year. On Tuesdays, FLRFC has arranged for a strength and conditioning coach to work with the athletes for one hour of the two hour session. The other hour will be rugby related skills. Fridays will be rugby only.
To register, you will need to use your SportsEngine account (the same as our website). There are instructions to set up your SportsEngine account under the "Registration" tab on our website if you don't already have one. Cost is $425.00.
Registration can be accessed at the following link:
Finally, anyone who can't attend academy, but would be interested in a winter tour, should also register for the wait list.
You can find FLRFC's COVID-19 Return to Play documentation located here.
As always, I am happy to answer questions.
At least one hour before every training session, each player must have completed a COVID-19 attestation.
This attestation is available through your Sportlomo account. Use this link to go to the login screen.
See the video below for instructions on how to fill out the form.
World Rugby has created some COVID-19 awareness modules which are provided free of charge to the rugby community. Modules take around 20 minutes to complete.
FLRFC will require all members aged 16 and older, and at least one parent of every member under 18, to take World Rugby's COVID 19 - Return to Play Awareness for Coaches and Players.
This module will educate our members on the requirements being mandated by World Rugby onto your local rugby community.
FLRFC believes that education and critical thinking is in the best interests of all participants. As such, this training is required to be completed by end of day Friday, September 11, 2020.
Once complete, course certifications must be downloaded and sent to FLRFC's COVID coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
