WHY RUGBY 7s?
Dive into the world of Rugby 7s, where speed, strategy and teamwork converge to create an electrifying spectacle! Here’s why you should be excited about the Club Age-Grade 7s Season:
Lightning-Fast Action: Rugby 7s is a high-paced game that keeps you on your toes. With fewer players on the field, there’s more space to maneuver, leading to breathtaking sprints, jaw-dropping passes, and lightning-fast tries.
Skill Enhancement: Whether you’re a seasoned XVs player or new to Rugby, Rugby 7s will take your skills to the next level. The emphasis on quick decision-making, accurate passing, and agile footwork will make you a well-rounded player, ready to tackle any challenge.
Team Bonding: Rugby 7s builds unbreakable bonds among teammates. The small squad size means you’re constantly working together, relying on each other’s strengths to secure victory. The friendships you forge on and off the field will last a lifetime.
Inclusive Atmosphere: The Age-Grade 7s Season is open to everyone, regardless of your experience level. If you’re curious about Rugby, this is the perfect opportunity to dip your toes in the water and discover the joy of the sport.
Thrilling Competition: The Age-Grade 7s Season brings together the best young talent in BC Rugby for an exhilarating showdown. Compete against other Clubs, test your mettle, and showcase your skills on a larger stage.
RUGBY 7s: PATHWAY TO OPPORTUNITIES
Rugby 7s is a popular format in British Columbia and presents athletes with many opportunities to represent at the regional, provincial, and national levels.
Athletes can be called up to their respective regional unions or zones to compete at tournaments such as the recent 2023 Provincial Regional Sevens tournament in Langford, and the BC Summer Games.
BC Bears Coaches use the Age-Grade 7s Season to identify and develop talent for their respective U16 and U18 Boys and Girls Provincial Teams. These teams compete at national and international events such as the Global Youth Sevens/World School 7s and Canada Summer Games, where the BC Bears U18 Girls won gold last summer and were subsequently nominated for Sport BC’s Team of the Year Award!
Further information on the 2023/24 BC Bears Girls and Boys 7s Programs will be released soon.
The 7s pathway can lead to national representation, with many of BC’s junior 7s athletes being selected to Canada’s National Sevens Teams and representing their country at events like the recent Commonwealth Youth Games, HSBC World Sevens Series, HSBC Canada Sevens events, Rugby World Cup Sevens, and even the Summer Olympic Games.
Rugby 7s is a truly global sport – don’t miss out on the excitement!
