This course will educate coaches on the specialist skills and attributes needed in the sevens game to further develop rugby sevens in Canada.

Held at Burnaby Lake on Sunday, March 27, this course will be available at a highly reduced registration fee of $75.00 per coach. High School coaches are encouraged to contact BC Rugby Manager of Member Services Louise Wheeler at 604-737-3065 or at lwheeler@bcrugby.com to register as early as possible as the course is limited to 50 attendees.
