September 10 – Sr. Men in Tacoma Washington
A Sr. Men’s team will travel to Tacoma Washington on September 10, 2016 for a exhibition match. The Capilano RFC traveled to Tacoma last season and it was a great hard match to warm up for the regular season. The club looks forward to playing this great club again.

Capilano RFC U20 Men

The Capilano Rugby Club will again be running a U20 Men’s team in the Fall of 2016. The season runs from mid August to late November/early December. Again this year, the coaching staff will be made up of current Capilano RFC Sr. Men’s Players.

Trainings will take place Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00pm to 7:00pm at Klahanie Park. Games are Saturday morning at 10:00am or 11:30am.

The team is open to players of any skill level and experience. Players must be born in 1997 or 1998 to be eligible for games. This team will be competitive but will also have fun.
