Any player, potential player or even mildly curious friend is welcome to join us.

WHERE: Brookfield Christian School
WHEN: Tuesday
TIME: 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

The Fall season schedule will be posted within the week so check back to see the details for our pre-season practices and Fall match schedule.

And remember... the off-season is the time to focus on personal fitness. By our individual efforts, we are collectively stronger.

End of the Season

It was a great end to our season with a win under the lights at home. The Bruisers dominated the visiting Norhshore team with an impressive 47-7. The A-side victory was a great way to close the season, as the Bruisers set their sights on the fall conference schedule.

The B-side struggled to stay on the board, suffering a 20-0 defeat. Although the B-side was not able to put points on the board against the athletic Northshore B-side, the Bruisers were dominate in the rucks and demonstrated a lot of clear potential for the fall.

If anyone has pictures lets post them.
