“Coaching the set-piece is always challenging, especially so at the Club and community level where training time can be limited. Having a workshop like this one, just ahead of the 2023/24 BC Rugby season, is a fantastic opportunity for our BC Coaches to come together and share knowledge and best practice. Front five play is always first and foremost, about providing a platform to launch your attack from and there are many facets to consider regarding having an effect and safe way of achieving that. The Coaching Summit will also run alongside our U19 Canadian Rugby Championships finals weekend at UBC, which will add a unique opportunity to analyze and work with some of the best young players coming through our pathways.” BC Rugby Technical Director John Tait
