About The Club
Formed after the end of the 1971 season, the Bytown Blues Rugby Football Club have been representing the rugby community proudly over the past 42 years, on and off the pitch. The 2013 season will be no different.
With three senior men’s squads and a full junior program, the Blues have a full summer schedule and a place for any and all of those that are interested.
The Blues 1st XV and 2nd XV both play in the Quebec Rugby Federation, in the Super League, with Championship titles in 2016 and just recently secured top spot in 2017. The club has participated in the McCormick Cup for the last 3 years, and will do so again. 2018 will see the return of the Blues 3rds team, in the EORU Division
The Blues Junior program is an established and successful program, its strength is due to the dedication of the coaches, managers and players within the club. We have represented EORU at the provincial championships for the last 10 years, repeatedly. As well, the club has placed doxens of players a year on the regional, provincial and national team levels, at all ages.
In 2018, we will look to startup the Blues women’s Junior program; with U13, U15 and U17 teams.
The Blues started the minor (flag) program in 2016; with 18 players. With the successful introduction of Try Rugby sessions last winter, the Rookie Rugby program has grown significantly to over 47 players at U6,8 and 10, for both boys and girls.
The U12 program, which started in 2015 with just 8 dedicated players, has grown to over 48 players, boys and girls. The team just finished a most successful season fielding 4 teams at the U12 level, and an amazing season results.
