By Matt Schmidt, 08/08/16, 1:00PM MST


Ladies and Gents,

*Our new website is up If you want to be a member of OPRFC, receive information, get membership perks and stay in the loop, you MUST register with our site. It takes less than five minutes. This will be our new way of collecting dues, informing the club of events, keeping track of current and past players. Even for non-players and alumni, registering with our site will give you up to date information, membership perks and a way for us to keep track of your occupation so we can send OPRFC members to your business when they need it.

*Starting August 3, we will have a rugby skills clinic every Wednesday night at Estevan Park at 6pm for one hour. Bring your friends and potential recruits.

*Every Saturdayday at 9am we will be at Estevan for those that want to get some touch in.

*Every Saturday afternoon we will be playing soccer at the Tucson Indoor Sports Complex. You need to wear solid athletic shoes (not cleats) and shin guards. Please show up at least a half hour early so we can get you registered, watch the game before us and develop a basic gameplan. Here is our schedule:
