Collegians Mini Rugby was reformed in 2010, with Morne Truter & Mike Seba being the catalyst in this re-emergence of the junior rugby section. Since inception in 2010, Collegians Mini Rugby numbers have grown year on year and so too have the achievements of our teams.
The 2018 Collegians Mini Rugby Season will get under way on Wednesday 21/02/2018. (Please see flyer below and pass on to anyone you feel may be interested in joining our Mini Rugby Section) Actual fixtures & venues for the coming season are yet to be determined by the Durban Rugby Sub Union Youth Club Rugby Association.
From 21 February 2018 and for the duration of the school’s first & second terms, Collegians will practice every Wednesday evening from 17:45 till 19:00. Your child may wear any rugby shorts & rugby jersey to practice, but will be required to wear the Collegians Rugby jersey & shorts when games commence in April.
Our dedicated group of admin ladies will be on hand to receive registration forms and cash from 17:00 on the 21 February 2018 and on any practice night thereafter. All necessary registration forms are available on Wednesday nights or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for an email copy. Payments can be made at practices on Wednesday evenings – cash only. (No Credit Card or direct deposit facilities are available). If you are unsure as to how the forms should be completed, then please do not hesitate to ask one of the admin ladies for assistance on the practice evenings. ID photos will not be required this season, however please ensure that a digital pic is taken of your son when registering at the club. First time registrations will also require a copy of your child’s birth certificate. Those players who registered with Collegians in previous years, need only complete the Boksmart Screening Questionnaire. The first practice on 21 February 2018 will be more of an administrative / signing on session. Our priority on the 21st will be to get a lot of the admin work out the way. Kids can still come along in their practice gear for an “informal” session.
Club Fees: R800 per child for the season, NOT per month. R500 for second & third child.

Personalised Name: R60

** There is no need to purchase kit again for 2018 if you still have last year’s kit and it fits.
