Where do you train?
Our home pitch is on Mitford School playing fields next to the parking lot.
All home games are played in Cochrane but we travel to other Clubs for some league games.
What equipment/clothes should I bring/wear?
You do not need to bring any equipment.
For training you need to wear sports clothing but no hoodies or zippers for safety reasons. Soccer cleats are usually recommended when the grass/mud is dry.
It is highly recommended to wear a mouthguard. Standard ones can be purchased at any good sports store. If gagging is a problem then a fitted one is recommended. Bow River Dental Centre - located behind Macdonalds in Cochrane (our adult team sponsor) can fit one for you in a couple of days but they do cost more than standard ones.
What else should I know?
During the Summer season 2012 the Grizzlies, were coached by Tyler Hawes who continues on with us for a second year. They played in the third division of the Calgary Rugby Union league, coming fourth in their first year as a team. To see the results of the 2012 season games please click here.
