BC Bears U18 Boys and Girls 7s
BC Bears Boys and Girls Elite 7s teams will be heading to New Zealand this December, to compete at the 2022 World School Sevens.
The World School Sevens, taking place at Auckland’s Pakuranga Rugby Club on December 17-18, is an international Rugby 7s tournament for U18 Boys and Girls teams, attracting sides from all around the world.
It is a great opportunity for U18 athletes to represent BC and test themselves at a higher level.
BC Bears Elite 7s Coaches Adam Roberts (Boys) and Darcy Patterson (Girls) are continuing preparations ahead of New Zealand. Coaches will be using the Age-Grade Club Rugby 7s season, culminating with the Kamloops 7s on October 8-9, and XVs Fall season, ending with BC Rugby Age-Grade Club Finals on December 4, to finalize their squads.
BC Bears U18 Boys 7s
Athletes must be birth years 2005 and 2006.
A final squad of 15 will be selected by October 30, which will train through November and December in preparation for New Zealand.
The cost for this program per athlete is still under review, approximated to be between $2,500 – $3,000.

BC Bears U18 Girls 7s
Following Team BC’s victory at the Canada Summer Games, we hope the World School 7s will further test our BC Bears U18 Girls team.
Coaches will be watching Age-Grade Club 7s and XVs seasons, as well as taking into account players who impressed in previous competitions this past Summer – including the BC Summer Games and Canada Summer Games. Athletes will be contacted directly for trials and training.
The cost for this program is approximately $3200 per athlete.
Following Auckland, the program will rebuild in 2023 with open ID sessions slated for January 14-15 for U16 and U18 players – further details will be released in due course.
