TRAINING

We would like to see more MEN’S players out. Currently there is a good mix, but the numbers are generally down. So those thinking of playing this season please come out Tuesdays and Thursday at 7pm sharp.

JUNIOR MEN

We are pleased to have Dave “Chili” Grisdale back in the fold. Dave has recently completed his Level 4 Coaching Certification and will head up the Junior Men’s team this fall.

Training sessions are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm-7:30. Please be punctual as we need to utilize the 1.5 hr. effectively.

All U-19 Men are welcome to come out. There is great potential for this year’s squad with a very good graduating group of U-17’s moving up. Games are on Sundays @ 1pm and other clubs involved are Comox, Nanaimo, James Bay AA(Victoria), Castaway Wanderers(Oak Bay) and Velox(Saanich).

U-18 WOMEN

Will again be coached by Alanna Skene and assisted by Kristy Hale and Caroline Gudmundseth.

The latest report has training on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 5pm to 6pm. The girls are very good and over the last 6 years have won 3 BC Championships.

WOMEN’S RUGBY

Players are slowly returning with 12 out on Thursday evening. The women will be coached by Taffy this fall and things are looking up.

Training is Tuesday and Thursdays between 6:30 and 8pm. Everyone welcome. Teams in the League are Comox, Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Velox x 2 and U-Vic.
