Beaconsfield Rugby Football Club has had the great privilege of having over 300 senior players (men & women) play for the club over the last 25 years. The BRFC alumni efforts are about keeping friends & people with a common past rugby experience connected. It is getting together at games, social events and reunions. It is bumping into somebody anywhere in Canada or the world and establishing a connection because you share something - your BRFC experience.
What does BRFC Alumni do? Our main role is to keep in touch with you. We have recently built the Alumni & Friends database to over 260 contacts. Many of these Alumni are still located in Montreal, but many are also spread out all over Canada.
The purpose of the BRFC Alumni & Friends initiatives is two fold:
1. To connect the Alumni to their BRFC friends and inform them of all BRFC activities (club updates, games, social & community events).
2. To support youth rugby in the West Island -- specifically to support local high school rugby programs, as well as our BRFC youth rugby (U10, U12, U14, U16 & U18) programs.
The next generation of BRFC players will continue to come from the local high schools, and our club's youth programs. It is wonderful to see so many Alumni kids, their friends and new members playing in the BRFC youth rugby programs.
BRFC Alumni & active players have contributed their experience, time and energy to coach and help out rugby programs at the following local high schools: John Rennie, Beaconsfield High School, Loyola, St-Thomas, Kuper Academy, Westwood High & PCHS. This is just a small example of how the BRFC Alumni is trying to make a difference within various local communities. We want to do more.
Wherever life may take you, please stay in touch.
