Junior Men

Welcome to the Junior Men’s Rugby Program!

For the past three decades, the Ottawa Ospreys RFC has been a recognized leader in supporting, promoting, and encouraging the growth of junior men’s Rugby within the region. The Program comprises U14, U16, and U18 teams that welcome all playing levels. The Junior Men’s Program strives to provide all members with an inclusive, safe learning and playing environment, promote community support, and promote rugby values.

The goals of the Junior Men’s Program:

  • Develop and grow the sport of Rugby in the Ottawa Area (specifically Ottawa West)
  • Generate a team environment that focuses on rugby fundamentals and team camaraderie.
  • Foster a fun and competitive atmosphere that encourages players to develop and compete at the higher levels of the game.
  • Promote and embrace the rugby values that can be carried over to life outside of the sport: courage, sportsmanship, discipline, and teamwork.

What does the season look like?

The season starts with Off-Season Training from January to April, which includes gym or dome training at least once a week. Outdoor training launches mid-May, where we practice for summer 15s in Kanata on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with games on the weekends from May to August. Fall 7s launches in September and will run from September to November.
