Junior Rugby Raiders Ottawa-bound
The Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders are holding tryouts this month for a junior team travelling to Ottawa in May.
Athletes aged 15 to 17 are invited to the Tournament Capital Centre on Tuesday, Jan. 15, for the first tryout, which runs from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Fieldhouse.
The next two sessions are scheduled for Jan. 22 and Jan. 29.
No rugby experience is necessary. There is a one-time fee of $5 required to attend the tryouts.
Athletes who attend need runners, mouth guards and shorts.
Transportation to and from Ottawa will be covered by the YMCA, said head coach Trevor Johnston.
Fundraisers are expected to cover the remaining travel cost.
