2021 Registration


The Ottawa Ospreys RFC 2021 rugby season is open for Registration!  Effective Friday, July 16, 2021, all sanctioned rugby clubs in Ontario are now permitted to begin contact training activities in Modified Phase 4 of the Rugby Ontario Return to Play Plan.  

Phase 4 of Rugby Ontario’s Return to Play Plan includes:

          • No limits outdoors / 50% capacity indoors
          • No time limits on the length of practices, outside of normal age-grade restrictions
          • Full Contact Training for Sanctioned Clubs & Games Permitted
          • No Activity Restrictions
          • When athletes are not active, they must remain 2 meters apart

        Registration remains open for all returning and new athletes. For those currently registered in the “Non-Contact” categories, you will need to upgrade your memberships (less than a $40 increase) to be properly insured with Rugby Canada and Rugby Ontario for contact practices and games. New registrations will proceed as usual in choosing “Contact” based on their program levels.

        Safety is always first in this sport. The Ottawa Ospreys RFC will follow the World Rugby Competition Ready Guidelines to prepare our athletes for fall competition adequately. We are encouraging all of our members to continue to spread the word that rugby is back! If you are interested in giving rugby a try, please reach out to the responsible program director!
