High-Performance Summer Camps to be held across BC’s four major regions in July 2021

May 26, 2021 – Vancouver, BC: It’s been a long time coming – but we’re excited to be getting Rugby back this summer.

BC Rugby is holding four High-Performance Summer Camps throughout the Province’s major regions this July.

Following the return of outdoor team sports as part of the BC Government’s Restart Plan, High-Performance Camps will be held in BC’s Fraser Valley, Interior, Vancouver Coastal Health and Island regions this summer.

The High-Performance camp offers elite coaching for male and female athletes, born 2002 to 2006. Training groups will be split by gender and age but spaces are limited! Each training group has a maximum of 40 athletes, so make sure you sign up now!

Rugby experience is NOT required, so if you’re feeling a little rusty, don’t worry! And if you have friends who are strong athletes that would like to give Rugby a go, please invite them to sign up too!

BC Rugby High-Performance Summer Camp Goals

The camps align with BC Rugby’s Purpose of growing, developing and managing the sport of Rugby in the Province of British Columbia. Our aim is to reconnect with athletes who aspire to excel within Rugby.

With another Age-Grade Representative season impeded by the COVID-19 pandemic, the goal of these four High-Performance Camps is:

  • Reconnect

    To reconnect, evaluate and support aspiring athletes on a Rugby pathway.

  • Support

    To support Regional Coaches reconnecting with Rugby players in preparation for the 2022 Provincial Regional Championships.

  • Prepare

    To prepare male and female BC players for future representative opportunities in both 7s and 15s formats, additionally supporting the National male Age-Grade selections (anticipated for late summer/early fall).
