The Lethbridge Rugby Club practices twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at Palliser Playing Fields. Practices are run by the Lethbridge Rugby Club coaching committee, headed by Ryan McKeown, and comprise individual skills development, set piece drills, and free-form scrimmages. All components of practices other than full contact drills/scrimmages are mixed – the men’s and women’s teams train together. Tuesday evening practices will wrap with an optional fitness session from 8:30 to 9:00 PM focused on speed and agility development.
Thursday training sessions are followed by a club family meal – for only $5 players are provided with a meal and a drink – this is a great way to bond with your fellow players, and also offers an opportunity to speak to the coaching committee about your own development, or suggestions for future practices. When footage is available, Thursday nights will also be an opportunity to review game footage from the previous week.
