CORE was founded in January of 2010. It was designed to grow and develop the sport of rugby in the Central Okanagan. CORE serves rugby enthusiasts, players, coaches, referees, trainer/managers in four Canadian communities – Kelowna, Lake Country, Peachland, and West Kelowna. Focused on three key types of rugby - 15-a-side rugby, sevens rugby, and touch rugby.
CORE plans to develop the infrastructure to achieve our vision by focusing on four key strategic areas. Development - building a youth touch sevens league to provide a foundation for all local rugby. Excellence - providing off-season training opportunities to dedicated elite rugby athletes. Sustainability - diversifying sources of rugby funding within the community. Community - re-connecting all local rugby enthusiasts to the sport they love.
