Saints Bi-Weekly Newsletter

Hello Saints! In this edition of the newsletter:

- Practice has started!!! ❤️
- Meet our president: Ryan Kemp
- Saints Face Mask now available! 
- Rugby match of the week: NZ vs. Wales

- and more!!


If you didn't already know registration is now open (so far we've had 80+ register 😍) and practices are running Tuesdays and Thursdays. It's the same Saints training you love with some COVID alterations to make sure everyone is as safe as possible.

Did we mention that the Saints aren't charging any dues?! That means you get two months of rugby for a bargain price, so if you know of anyone who has always been wanting to play rugby this is a perfect time to bring them out. All practices are NON-CONTACT. 

Saints COVID Protocols

As we mentioned, there are many COVID protocols in place to ensure everyone gets to enjoy rugby while remaining as safe as possible.

COVID-19 Mitigation of Risk Requirements:
- Practices are limited to 60 minutes
- Cohorts are limited to 50 people
- All participants must fill out a daily attestation prior to attending practice
- Participants may only particpate in one sports cohort
- Hand sanitizer is provied at entrance and exits

All up to date Saints COVID information can be found on the COVID section of our website and in the Participant Information Package

Practice Logistics

Logistics Notes
  • Park in parking spots AWAY from the field. Do not park in the single row directly on the North side of the field – this creates many close contact situations as participants are trying to check in and you are trying to enter or exit your vehicle. 

  • Refunds: All registrants have 2 weeks from the date of registration to request a refund after which there will be absolutely no refunds. 


  • Must CHECK-IN

  • Attestations must include your FULL NAME in any box requiring a name or signature

  • Must leave as soon as their session is over

  • Must use hand sanitizer on the way in and out

  • If you arrive more than 15 minutes prior to your session you must remain in your vehicle

  • Cannot venture to another cohort to chat or visit at any time before, during or after practice

Parents / Non-Participants:

  • Can only stand on the far EAST side of the field, near the fence. 

    • Even if registered but not practicing

Saints Player Profile
Ryan Kemp

Calling Ryan a lifelong saint is an understatement (his father played saints for 15 years 1980-95). Ryan is an integral part of the Saints family and is currently serving his second term as club president. When he's not busy with the Saints, he's quite the adventurer outdoors, spending his spare time skiing and hiking.

Age: 32
Position: Formerly lock/prop
Years Playing Rugby: Player for 5 years (All 5 as a Saint!)
Favourite part about rugby: Commeradery and social life, and that it's a physically demanding team-oriented sport
