Minis Program (U5, U7, U9 & U11) is the largest and most successful in North America, producing many past, current and, most certainly, future Ontario Provincial and Canadian International players!
Join the Crusaders Minis program and become part of an inclusive playing and socially active volunteer based club that has been leading the way in Canadian club rugby since 1968!
The Crusaders Mini Rugby Program is a fun way to introduce and develop the joy of rugby in a friendly and safe environment. By developing the principles of love of physical activity, team work, and the skills of rugby at early ages, we are aiming to ingrain strong values and skills that can be used throughout a lifetime and career.
Mini rugby is the start of a long term development model of a successful rugby player, or for some, simply the beginning of an enjoyable and healthy fulfilling lifestyle.
We are proud of our committed volunteer coaches that work hard to create a fun and respectful learning environment whilst at the same time giving our Minis players a solid grounding in the wonderful sport of Rugby, one of North America’s fastest growing grass level sports.
Throughout the season CRU runs many social events, from Victoria Day Fireworks display to BBQ’s, touring team games to watch and a very socially vibrant clubhouse and deck where players and family are welcome to enjoy hot summer days and warm evenings watching rugby activities.
At the Crusaders you will be part of a club, not just a team!
