Administrative history

The Alberta Rugby Union (ARU) formed in 1960 and is the provincial administrative body for rugby in Alberta. Rugby had been played in Alberta since the 1880's and revitalized in the 1950's by immigrants to Alberta who formed clubs in Calgary and Edmonton which would compete against each other. In 1961 the presidents of the Edmonton Rugby Union and the Calgary Rugby Union became members of the ARU. The ARU aims to promote Alberta based clubs internationally and became a registered society in 1970.
