Good afternoon rugger families!
Welcome to the fall season of EORU 7s!
We begin our training this upcoming Sunday morning. See attached schedule (version 1). Please note the training fields do change on a regular basis.
This year Rugby Ontario is featuring a three stop FALL 7s SERIES: Toronto, Ottawa and Brantford. EORU will be selecting rep teams to compete in each of these tournaments – the rosters will change for each tournament, depending on skill development at training, player availability and division/s we are entering. The first tournament is in Toronto in less than two weeks – so we will select our teams after this Sunday’s training session.
The fees for the fall outdoor training are $50 and are due this Sunday09, or at the latest on Sunday/16 September.
When the sessions move indoors to the Ashbury gym and the Algonquin dome (TBC late November/early December) the fees are an additional $350. They can be paid in full on December 01, or half on December 01/18 and the second half on January 19, 2019. Fees can be paid with cash, cheque (made out to EORU) or eTransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org password EORU7s .
The fee for each tournament is set as soon as we have completed registration, reserved the vehicle/s, accommodations and food. In past years, each of the “away” tournaments in the Fall 7s series cost anywhere between $95 and $130 per player. We will continue to try and include as many meals as possible, to make it easier on both the pocket book and logistics.
We will cap our Fall season with the popular New York 7s tournament, held over the American Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. This tournament usually runs between CAN$600-$650 per player.
If you do not have EORU kit from this summer’s OSGs (or ECCs for girls), you will be required to purchase new kit (polo shirt, training shirts, game shorts and socks) for the tours. We hope to offer hoodies as well. Prices are TBA. We will put in one order mid-September.
If you’ve got any questions, please feel free to reach out to me.
On behalf of the coaches, thanks for your continued interest in Eastern Ontario Rugby and see you Sunday.
EORU 7s Manager
