TrueBlue BC Rugby Under-15 Provincial Team
As a result of the capacity established through the Under-14 Provincial program, a youth elite player base exists for both a BC Island and BC Mainland U15. Each team will take on NCYRA’s Junior Varsity team (those players under the age of 16 years) as a curtain raiser to the U17 fixtures in Vancouver and Victoria. Sessions to select the teams will be held leading up to the two fixtures.
In addition to drawing from the previous year’s Under-14 Provincial teams, it is anticipated the U15 squads will also feature 14 year olds looking to make their regional squads in this summer’s Under-16 Division at the Provincial Regional Championship.
