Cochrane Rugby

Coyotes Rugby Athletic Association is still looking for budding rugby players aged 6 up to 15, to represent the community of Cochrane during the 2011 Summer Season.  Boys and Girls play in coed teams and it is $100 for age groups Under 7s/Under 9s/Under 11s and boys only teams pay $180 for Under 13s and Under 15s, it is one of the few community activities that offers youths an environment of friendship, discipline, team work, respect, fitness and skills at a fraction of the cost of other locally based sports.  Co-ed teams play non-tackle rugby.

If you want to learn more about rugby, or would like more information about what your child would be exposed to playing rugby, then please call Francine at telephone: 403 932-7418, e-mail: or visit our website at  Alternatively, you and your child are welcome to join us at one of our Friday evening training sessions at Bow Valley High School between 6-7pm at no cost.  

The Coyotes are proud of their relationship with the residents of Cochrane.  Having recently successfully introduced rugby into Bow Valley and Cochrane High School, a community team at all age groups would be a fitting way to build upon the achievements already witnessed. Recent accomplishments include winning the Calgary and Provincial championship in 2008; featuring well in the Las Vegas sevens against the best teams in the US in 2010; and boasting 9 players that have moved on to represent the Province at different age groups.

With rugby now being one of the fastest growing team games in Canada, its’ future has never looked brighter.  The National Team is currently placed fourteenth in the world rankings and sevens rugby has officially been included in the 2016 Summer Olympics.

To register your child with the Coyotes, visit our website and complete the Rugby Canada Registration & Insurance Form as well as the Coyotes Registration Form listed under the ‘Registration’ tab. All completed forms along with registration fees (Cash or Cheque only) can be handed to one of the rugby coaches at Bow Valley High School on Friday night between 6pm and 7pm.

We ALWAYS welcome spectators and positive cheerleaders so come on out for the free entertainment!  See you there!  We have one practice per week and one game per weekend.
