Edmonton Gold Academy
We are looking for players to become part of the Gold Player Development Academy. The goal is to identify and develop young players in Edmonton at the U18 and U16 levels (players born in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 & 2006) who have potential to play the game at a higher level and increase their skill level.
This is an opportunity for players to grow and become more proficient at specific rugby skills identified in the Rugby Alberta pathway. This program is about becoming a fundamentally sound player and being prepared to transition from high school/club into higher level representative teams (Gold, Alberta, Wolf Pack, and Canada) and have the opportunity to work on your skills during the off season.
Location: Commonwealth Rec Centre. Please register online, in advance: https://forms.gle/WnCmtMyP9CeCvaLNA
After the first session, we will assess what our numbers and if we will need to limit our numbers. The indoor training's will run from January through March alternating between boys and girls. All dates will be sent out in an email to those registered as well as posted at www.edmontonrugby.com The cost will be $50 for the program.
If you have any questions, concerns or trouble filling out the form please contact Danielle.Weran@gmail.com

Please click the link in header above to read the Referee Abuse Policy from the Edmonton Rugby Union (ERU) and the Edmonton Rugby Union Referees Society (ERURS). This policy is effective immediately and applies to all coaches and spectators.
Player abuse of referees will continue to be dealt with according to the World Rugby and ERU Rules and Regulations.
The ERU Club Presidents have committed their support of this policy. The clubs have pledged to work with the ERU and ERURS to curb referee abuse. Be reminded that it is the CLUB’S responsibility to control spectators as per item 2.3 in the Rugby Alberta Rules & Regulations
We ask that if you see any instances of referee abuse (or volunteer/staff abuse), that you let your board members know so that it can be dealt with. Or speak to the coach or spectator yourself if you feel safe to do so. If we do not curb this trend we will continue to lose referees and the game will suffer.
