I would like to thank everyone for their patience. It has been an uphill struggle getting our rugby registration open.
This year, FLRFC is planning to run spring / summer programs. Rugby Alberta has put together a "Return to Play" plan that includes a phased approach inline with Alberta Government and AHS guidelines. Rugby Alberta's Return to Play plan is located here.
I will be holding a townhall session for all interested members (via Zoom) on Tuesday, March 30th. See our Calendar for event details. I urge everyone to attend. Your feedback, as the Society's members, is of critical importance. The purpose of the Club is to serve its members; the Board of Directors needs your input in order to shape our actions going forward.
Due to some limitations in the Sportslomo registration software, registration this year is a two-step process. The first step is completing Rugby Canada's registration using your Sportlomo login (this is the same as the last few years).
Registration (Step #1):
Navigate to rugbycanada.sportlomo.com. Select on "Alberta" as the province and "Foothills Lions" as your Club. Double-check to ensure that you have selected the correct Club, as the Club name does not show up in the following registration screen (as shown in screenshot below).

For age grade U11 and up, the registration is the same as normal. For U7 & U9 minis, the registration is set up as an event program. Select your registration type and then click on the "REGISTER" button that appears immediately below.
On the next screen, sign in to your existing Sportlomo account (or register for an account if you are a new member).
Ensure the selection is correct then carry through the registration process.
Important: If you need to register for more than one category, e.g. adult player and coach, only register for a single category at a time or you will be double charged. After the initial registration you can return and upgrade to add the additional categories. If this is the case, contact Jamie Mior for help.
Registration (Step #2):
Following the Sportlomo registration described in Step #1 above, you will need to complete a Club-specific registration using your SportsEngine account. This is the same account used by the website for team and club communications.
This registration introduces you to the Club's Code of Conduct and Respect in Sport policies, COVID training, and PIC for coaches, trainers, and volunteers. Please complete the secondary registration as soon as possible. The Club registration is located at:
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.
Also, see more information on our Return to Play page:
At least one hour before every training session, each player and coach / volunteer must have completed a COVID-19 attestation.
This attestation is available through your SportsEngine account. See your team page for the link.
Be sure to enter the training date that you are creating the attestation for into the form.
