Minor Pagans Programming

The Peterborough Pagans RUFC Minor Rugby program is for boys and girls from age 4 through 12.

The Minis program is a fun and safe way to be exposed to rugby and develop fundamental skills progressing from flag rugby to controlled contact.


The Peterborough Pagans RUFC Minor Rugby Program is a fun way to introduce and develop the joy of rugby in a friendly and safe environment. By developing the principles of love of physical activity, team work, and the skills of rugby at early ages, we are aiming to ingrain strong values and skills that can be used throughout a lifetime and career. Mini rugby is the start of a long term development model of a successful rugby player, or for some, simply the beginning of an enjoyable and healthy lifestyle.

We are proud of our committed volunteer coaches that work hard to create a fun and respectful learning environment whilst at the same time giving our Minis players a solid grounding in the wonderful sport of rugby.

ALL registered players receive a Pagans shirt with their registration fee.

Our Minor Pagans program focuses on the five Principles of healthy child development that the research indicates are essential for quality programs:

  • A Caring Adult
  • The opportunity to make Friends
  • The opportunity to Play
  • The opportunity to Master Skills
  • The opportunity to Participate

Please refer to the Rugby Ontario Age Grade Matrix for information regarding which age grade program you, or your child will be participating in based on their birth year.
