Rugby Ontario Under-15 Regional Junior Development Program Head Coaches (6) & Assistant Coaches (12)


Rugby Ontario is proud to introduce its new regionally-focused U15 boys provincial representative rugby program, which will now operate as the Rugby Ontario Under-15 Regional Junior Development Program.

The six teams will be regionally based in locations across Ontario: Eastern Ontario (Ottawa), Toronto East (Oshawa), Toronto North (Markham), Toronto Central (Toronto), Niagara (Burlington), and Southwestern Ontario (London).

More information regarding the Program can be found here: http://rugbyontario.com/AboutUs/NewsStories/LatestNews/tabid/15402/sni%5B20577%5D/3796/language/en-US/Default.aspx

Each regional team will have one head coach and two assistant coaches, and will be overseen by Tom McLeod, the Under-15 Regional Junior Development Program Coordinator. McLeod is no stranger to the Junior Blues program; he served as the head coach of the 2013 U14 Jr. Blues team, as well as an assistant coach of both the U16 Jr. Blues (2011, 2012) and the U15 Jr. Blues (2010).


As the final plans are being put into place for the upcoming season, Rugby Ontario is currently accepting coaching applications for these regional head coach and assistant coach positions (please note that coaches will need to attend a NCCP Introduction to Competition course prior to the season, if they are not already certified.).

Applications, which should include a rugby coaching resume, can be sent to Rugby Ontario’s Manager of Operations & Administration, David Patterson (dpatterson@rugbyontario.com). The deadline to apply is May 2.
