We’ve been working hard preparing for the 2020 Season, organizing events and working on new initiatives to move the club forward – and we are looking forward to our best season yet!

  • We’re very lucky and absolutely thrilled to welcome Scott Hendry as our 2020 Mens Coach and Andrea Burk as our Senior Womens coach (Andrea’s wikipedia entry) – both Canada players, very experienced coaches and phenomenal additions to the club. Watch for very good things in our Senior program this year! Please feel free to drop them a welcome note at senior.men@crusadersrugby.ca and senior.women@crusadersrugby.ca
  • A most grateful welcome to AutoTrader/Trader Corp as our 2020 Lead Sponsor. AutoTrader will be sponsoring much of our 2020 kit needs, will be a big presence at the club and will be making a substantial financial contribution to the club.
  • Try Rugby Day: Apr 5 and Meet the Coaches Day: Feb 29 – please spread the word.
  • Our Junior and Mini Summer Day Camps are beginning to fill up – register now! The mini camps were a massive success in 2019 and we’ve added more for junior players this summer.
  • Bar pricing: we’ve revised our bar pricing (which we’ve kept artificially low for many years) to help us ensure our bar is moderately profitable in 2020.
  • 6 Nations and Arrows away matches continue to be shown in the clubhouse, bar open – everyone welcome.
  • Good luck to the U14 Boys, U16 Girls and the U16 Boys, as well as the numerous Cru players on the NRU, TRU, Ontario and Rogues teams attending the Tropical 7s in April. We’re estimating as many as 50 Cru junior players will be representing various teams.
  • Crusaders Annual Fund: a new way to support the club and receive a charitable tax receipt for your donation!
  • Visit Oakville has offered the club sponsorship to help us support and develop our inbound tours and new tournaments.
  • New: 2020 Kit Exchange – save cash, help the environment and raise money for the club!
  • Save the Date: Join the Cru at the Toronto Arrows Club Day, Lamport Stadium: April 19 @ 12pm

2020 Membership:

  • Registration for 2020 Season now open
  • New Membership classes in 2020: Social Member and Alumni Member. In 2020, we’re making a concerted effort to open the club up more to parents, ex-parents, families, friends, alumni and the broader community – we really hope you’ll join and help us build upon what makes this club a fantastic family experience.
  • Touch Rugby Memberships for our growing seniors, ladies and masters touch rugby will be available in mid-March – stay tuned.
  • Membership Dues: after substantial consultation with members, the board has modestly increased the dues for some classes of membership for 2020 to reflect our increased costs and ensure the club’s sustainability. Rugby remains one of the most affordable sports for children, youth and adults in the region – and is certainly excellent value comparative to other sports, especially given the extensive facilities and programming the club offers to our membership.
