    2016 SLS Rugby Academy

    Shawnigan Lake School will host the 7th Annual Rugby Academy July 3 to July 8, 2016.
    This camp provides a unique opportunity for girls and boys between the ages of 11 and 17 not only to develop their rugby skills, but also learn more about the underlying values of the sport, such as respect and self-discipline. Whilst the camp will be organized into a Junior (11-14) and a Senior section (15-17), the "As One" philosophy of creating a tight-knit rugby community focussed around an engaging group experience will pervade. The coaching staff will be led in 2016 by Canadian U18 coach Jim Delaney, and will feature former and current men’s and women’s international players.  These players will also live and sleep in the residences, which will allows the camp participants to rub shoulders with international athletes during their ‘down time’ away from the rugby field.

    Please contact amonro@shawnigan.ca for more information and to register.

    Youth Rugby Academy

Members of the National Canadian Representative teams will assist with activities, coaching and as house parents.
