EORU Junior Rep Academy Announcement

Announcing the EORU Junior Rep Academy

EORU was excited to send four junior teams and spend this weekend at the Ontario Summer Games. But oh well, OSG 2021 is not that far off! So, we’re preparing for our first ever online EORU Junior Rep Academy meeting!

The academy is open to all interested junior players born 2002-2008.

We will be using Google Classroom as the platform to connect with the players throughout the 2020-2021 season. Over time, we will use this platform to:

  • review the laws of the game
  • view video (ie. games, practices, skill demonstrations, etc.)
  • post training schedules, locations and plans
  • discuss potential tournaments and tours
  • explain how any and all in-person sessions will be COVID-19 Safety Compliant
  • develop our team culture.

The EORU staff invites all 2002-2008 players to join this platform.

Our first meeting is scheduled for Thursday, August 6th, 2020, from 7 to 8pm. You will receive an invitation after you’ve joined Google Classroom. Steps to do that are listed below. We’ll introduce our staff and lay out our program for everyone. We’d love to see everyone join, but understand if you have a conflict. You’ll be able to access the notes from the meeting afterwards (including any media), and you will continue to receive invitations to future meetings. If you’ve got any questions you’d like asked in your absence, be sure to submit them to leeellenrugby@gmail.com ahead of Thursday.

In preparation for our season, EORU players are asked to:

  1. Have a gmail address where your username is your real name (no nicknames will be permitted). Do NOT use your school email even if it is gmail compliant.
  2. Download the Google Classroom App to your smartphone.
