U16 & U18 Boys

U16 Boys team

Our U16 & U18 junior boys program welcomes all players no matter your skill level. We play full contact and our program is designed to introduce new players to the game of rugby, but also develop skilled, high level athletes capable in competing at provincial and rep level.

The coaches strive to give each athlete the personalized attention to develop their game.

Our focus is to foster an environment where athletes apply core values in both rugby and life such as respect, honour, discipline, integrity, teamwork and accountability. We aim to teach and develop all core and essential skills and understanding of the game.

This age group plays by full 15 a side rules with weekly games and 2 practices per week in the summer.  The 7s season begins in the fall and runs in tournament style on weekends.

Nomads strive to be a club that welcomes all and prides in building a strong sense of culture.
