New Touch Rugby balls for the “Potential” upcoming 2021 Spring season

Look what arrived all the way from Australia!!! New Touch Rugby balls … can’t wait to try them out.

For the “Potential” upcoming 2021 Spring season, the executive are working on our Operation Plan for the Return to Play. Plus we have delayed the start of the season to begin late May.

We would like to have a 8 week season (7 weeks of regular season and the 8th week is the Playoffs/Championship). Also as a FYI the Emera Turf field rental cost have increased in 2021.

So, stay tuned as we work out the details.

PS really looking forward to be on the pitch (aka field) again!

2020 “Potential” Winter Season at the Irving Oil Field House – Survey

The Executive met this evening to go over the upcoming potential seasons for the SJTRL.

The first on the list is a ‘potential’ six week Winter season (Feb-Mar) at the Irving Oil Field House following COVID protocols/procedures. Plus all players must sign a WAIVER in order to participate in the Winter season.

It will be 5 v 5 format and will consist of four Co-Ed teams of 10 players per team. Which means the League can have only 40 players max.

If this is something you are interested in, please take the time to fill in the survey so that we can get an idea when the majority of players would be available to play.–kNYQhWE9r4A/edit?usp=sharing

Covid-19 Update – 2019 Winter League Playoffs/Championships – Cancelled

Due to the unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic along with NB in a state of emergency, it’s no surprise that we have to cancel the 2019 Winter Playoffs & Championships.

As of right now, the Spring League is cancelled. This would been our 5th Anniversary Spring League as we started this league back in the Spring 2016.

On the bright side of things, we are looking to a possible Fall league at the Field House. Otherwise we are planning on a Winter League again.

Be safe out there and we hope to see you again on the pitch (aka Field).

Covid-19 Update – 2019 Winter League Playoffs/Championships – Suspended

The Saint John Touch Rugby League (SJTRL) is first and foremost committed to the health and safety of our players and officials. In keeping with this commitment, we have made the decision to suspend the 2019 Winter Playoffs & Championships that are scheduled on Wed March 18th until further notice.

We are aiming to have them rescheduled in the near future given sufficient evidence that it is safe to resume Touch Rugby otherwise they will have to be cancelled.
