Come and Try Rugby Events are intended to provide an opportunity for Rugby Clubs to offer a session where kids, youths and/or adults can Come & Try non-contact rugby activities.  Come & Try Events do not require new participants to register through the National Registration System, for the Come & Try Event. Each new participant is able to attend 1 Come & Try Event prior to registering.

Prior to hosting a Come & Try Rugby Event, the Rugby Club should have the event sanctioned by Rugby Canada.  To apply for sanctioning please CLICK HERE and select ‘Come and Try Rugby’. All applications must be submitted two weeks prior to the event date to avoid being charged a late processing fee ($50).

Each Rugby Club can access 2 FREE Come & Try Event per calendar year.  Any Come & Try Events that need to be sanctioned thereafter will cost $50.00.  To access the two free Come & Try Events, each club will need a discount code before they go through the Sanctioning process.  To be provided with your discount codes please email your Provincial Union if you have not recieved your codes.
