This past summer saw the largest enrolment for Mini and Junior rugby for the Ajax Wanderers with over 200 girls and boys playing summer rugby for the Wanderers!
Wanderers Mini program successfully ran Co-Ed U6, U8 and U10 flag rugby teams and a U12 Intro to Contact Team. The U6 team enjoyed learning the game of rugby through fun Friday practices, while the U8, U10 and U12 teams participated in tournaments in various locations around the GTA against many of the other clubs in the area. Tournament highlights include festivals in Oshawa, Peterborough, Lindsay, Markham, a beach rugby day in Cobourg and the final festival day hosted by Rugby Ontario.
A lot of fun was had all summer long along with many new skills and a growing love for the sport of rugby. Registration for the 2018 Wanderers Mini Rugby programs will be open in the new year through the website: ajaxwanderers.com
