2021 AGE-GRADE FINALS

Welcome to BC Rugby’s page for the 2021 Age-Grade Club Finals. Here you will find all information and details for both venues.

The 2021 Age-Grade Finals take place at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium (Mainland) and Cowichan Rugby Club (Island) on Sunday, December 12, 2021.

BC is still in a State of Emergency and with rain, snow and low temperatures predicted both on Vancouver Island and in Vancouver this week, BC Rugby will continue to monitor the situation ahead of Sunday’s finals.

Safety is always the primary concern. Please be aware that decisions may have to be made at very short notice – especially if fields are frozen overnight. In the unexpected event of cancellation, we will endeavour to communicate this as quickly as possible.
