Practice starts full time Tuesday and Thursday nights at Rillito Park from 6 to 8pm. We have welcomed the Barbarian players onto our team with open arms and are supporting a new kit this year. Thanks to our sponsors to helped make it possible.  Our first match will take place Friday, January 20 vs. Red Mountain and the rest of the schedule will be posted soon.


We are excited to announce the Engage committee is hard at work to plan a fundraiser and clinic for OPRFC's charity program. The fundraiser is tentatively scheduled for June 10 at the Temple of Music and Art. Money will be raised to fund this year's Engage clinic, and the plan is to expand Engage into a full blown youth program this Fall. Further details will be announced very soon. For more information about our charity, email or check it out.
