Our coaches certainly enjoyed the atmosphere and were impressed with the positive experiences the athletes provided.
The goal of the four camps was to reconnect, evaluate and support aspiring athletes on a Rugby pathway.
Additionally, we aimed to support regional coaches reconnecting with Rugby players in preparation for the 2022 Provincial Regional Championships and to prepare male and female BC players for future representative opportunities in both 7s and XVs formats.
Athletes had their work cut out in a mixture of attacking and defensive drills, as well as performance testing. They were also challenged in a variety of non-Rugby activities, including team building puzzles and fun games that aided the development of their teamwork and problem solving skills.
The first three days of each camp focused on different themes, with coaches running drills for each specific area: Attacking, Get The Ball Back and Fight to Play! The final day saw athletes contest a Touch Rugby tournament, using all the skills they had learned in the previous days.
