BCRFC Official statement on Rugby Canada Dues Increase

Burlington Centaurs Rugby Club official statement on Rugby Canada Dues Increase:

 

While the Burlington Centaurs RFC supports our Canadian National Rugby Programs we are disappointed and do not support passing the financial burden directly to the athletes at the grassroots level.

As registration of our annual rugby dues were already established and launched for the Burlington Centaurs RFC, which includes the registration dues for Rugby Canada and Rugby Ontario, this season our club will absorb the Rugby Canada dues increase on behalf of our senior players.

As a result, this year we are asking for the support from all players and membership to help our club offset this burden through the following avenues:

2018 Player Recruitment Program – Any club member referring a new senior registered player, and upon full payment of their dues, will receive a $25 gift card redeemable at the clubhouse.

Increase Club Volunteer Participation– we are extremely fortunate to have our very own clubhouse that the Centaurs call home. The maintenance of the clubhouse and running of club events involves a lot of planning and hard work from our Executive. Ask your divisional directors how you can volunteer and help out your club.

Build our Centaur Rugby Family– encourage family, friends and teammates to support all divisions at our home games and club events. Everyone is welcome to come upstairs to enjoy snacks and refreshments in our clubhouse while watching a game of rugby from our balcony.

Support our 45thAnniversary Weekend – We will be celebrating our 45th Anniversary through August 24th – 26th,. Get involved and support our Golf Tournament on the Friday, the Alumni Game and 45th Anniversary Dinner on the Saturday and our Centaur Breakfast on the Sunday. We will also be commemorating the club’s history with a “Centaurs Through the Years” memory book available for purchase.
