2022 REGISTRATION AND RUGBY ALBERTA VACCINATION POLICY

March 7th 2022

**Update**

Rugby Alberta has released an updated Vaccination policy and as of March 15th, proof of vaccination will not be required to register for the 2022 season. Please visit our club documents page to review the release from Rugby Alberta in full.

**********************************************

Registration for the 2022 season is now open on our registration page for all age groups from Mini's to Senior's.

Get yourself, your kids, your significant other, that person you sat beside on the train or at the bar, get them all signed up for what's set to be a fantastic summer of Rugby!

With a new season upon us, Rugby Alberta, in conjunction with Rugby Canada have released a Vaccination policy for 2022 registrants to ensure a safe and competitive environment for all.

The policy was released prior to the Govt of Alberta's easing of restrictions. 

As the Provincial changes were brought in at short notice, Rugby Alberta have not been able to review their policy and determine if changes are required. Rugby Alberta had previously set a review date of June 1st however with the 'Return to Normal' approach, they are bringing this review date forward to February 28th. 

We would ask that all members have patience and if you have any concerns with registering and the vaccination policy, to reach out to president.saracens@gmail.com

A copy of the communication from Rugby Alberta can be found on our club documents page https://www.calgarysaracensrfc.com/covid-19

For all other registration questions and inquiries, please reach out to the following;

vpadm.saracens@gmail.com for technical support within the registration system

vpmen.saracens@gmail.com for general inquiries related to the mens program and registration

vpwomen.saracens@gmail.com for general inquiries related to the womens program and registration

CALLING ALL SOB'S

January 3rd 2022

A clubhouse flood.  

A world-wide plague.

Are you asking what could possibly be next? You are not alone!


It has been an incredible couple of summers for the world, and also for the mighty Saracens. Sports organizations around the world are struggling to stay afloat. After 2 years of very little opportunity to register players the Saracens are in a challenging financial state. Year to year, we rely almost exclusively on dues to stay afloat as a club.


In difficult times, communities band together to survive.


Ask not what the Saracens can do for you, but what you can do for the Saracens.


  1. Jump on board for any fundraisers or social nights that the club organizes

  2. Volunteer to  participate in the fall clubhouse clean up or to shovel through the winter

  3. Chip in by making a donation to the club $50, $100, or whatever you wish to contribute. Donations will be tracked  to the Order of the Green Crescent and will go a long way to helping the Saracens navigate these uncertain times.

  4. Sign up for a Social Membership, $50 for the year.

Donations and social memberships will help with on field costs and the on-going maintenance and up-keep of our beloved Clubhouse.


In solidarity, we thank you.
