About the BCEY7s
The objective of the BC Elite Youth Sevens program is to create and deliver a development pathway for junior athletes, who can develop skills to represent Canada with distinction at future Rugby World Cup tournaments and the Olympic Games. Based on the current development initiatives offered in British Columbia, it is the intention of this program to augment current high school and club 15-a-side programs with a focus on identifying athletes who would be suitable to represent British Columbia and Canada in the future.
