Girls Can Rugby is a province-wide initiative launched by BC Rugby aimed at inspiring more girls to play Rugby in a positive and enjoyable environment at local Clubs throughout BC.
Coinciding with International Women’s Day this year, BC Rugby Clubs from Campbell River to Fort St John hosted a Girls Can Rugby Day – a free tryout welcoming all girls aged 5-14 – that was enjoyed by 650 girls!
In the year of the Women’s Rugby World Cup, we want to see more girls under the age of 14 playing Rugby in a positive environment at Clubs in the province. This age range is traditionally dominated by male players, and we aim to readdress this balance and encourage more girls-only programming offered by Clubs going forward.
BC Rugby gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport in helping launch the Girls Can Rugby initiative.
