Touch Rugby in Winnipeg

touch rugby 2Something fun and exciting is coming to Winnipeg, with a flavour that will certainly appeal to Aussies, Kiwis and others in our club and beyond.

Caleb Stick is the founder of Winnipeg Touch Rugby. Kiwi born and raised, Caleb has been living in Winnipeg for six years, and is looking to introduce others to this great sport.

“I am hoping to raise awareness about Touch Rugby, which is now officially launching in Winnipeg. It has a governing body as well as partnership with Canada Touch Rugby Inc. Five provinces are in the final stages of launching Canada on both the national and international stage.”

Touch rugby is a minimal contact sport for all skills levels, abilities, and degrees of fitness. The first session will be held from 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm beginning on Sunday April 10 at River Heights School at 1350 Grosvenor Ave.

All members of the public are invited to participate, and there is no cost to play. The Winnipeg group is open to both men and women, with a minimum age of 18. Newcomers are more than welcome!

Simply show up and learn a new sport with minimal rules.
