Nomads Excelling! Let’s Support Their Rugby Dreams

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

The conclusion of this summer’s Ontario and Canada trials, camps and selection processes has resulted in an unprecedented number of Nomads representing either our province or our country this summer.

We are tremendously proud of these players and we wish them all the very best in their respective upcoming events.

Some of these athletes have started GoFundMe pages to help finance the costs of this honour. As you all know, we operate within a pay-to-play representative model in Canadian Rugby and this can create challenges. If you wish to support these young Nomads, please go here and give generously;

The Nomads Junior club remain supportive of all player efforts to raise funds in order to represent themselves, their families and our club at provincial and national level. At this current time, we commit to sharing and advertising all funding pages set up by players or players’ families. Going forward, we hope to announce exciting evolutionary developments in this space as the junior club grows and evolves its role in the lives of our fabulous young athletes. After all, Better Never Stops.


Go Nomads


Mark, Ross and the Nomads Juniors executive.
