National Youth Rugby Clinic
This is a rugby skills clinic organized by Ryan Hamilton (Canadian National 15’s Player) and Sean Duke (Canadian National 7’s/15’s Player). Our goal is to bring the youth of Vancouver Island together in a positive training environment in order to facilitate the growth and progression of rugby. Our plan is to bring in a number of National Team athletes to share what we believe to be the most effective and unique skill oriented drills that we have learned over the years of playing at the elite level. More importantly, we hope to project the core values of Canadian Rugby that commend teamwork, fair play, camaraderie, and having fun! In doing so, we hope to encourage the progression of Vancouver Island youth rugby. Our camp is open to boys and girls within the ages of 12-19. No prior rugby experience is necessary; we want to welcome everyone from seasoned players to those who are just beginning to develop an interest in the game.
We, as coaches, will strive to provide our camp participants with one-on-one coaching that will encompass the basic skills of rugby. Furthermore, position-specific expertise will also be made available. We believe our camp will offer a unique experience for a number of reasons. (1) It will provide clinic participants with the opportunity to work/interact with a number of national team athletes in a close quartered one-on-one atmosphere. Our goal is to provide a coach-to-participant ratio of 1:6. (2) It will include both male and female athletes, featuring both male and female national team members as coaches. (3) It will allow for clinic participants to train at the University of Victoria, which over the years has been one of Rugby Canada’s chief training grounds. In addition, all the clinic participants will get the benefit of training with the top of the line equipment that the Canadian National Team(s) uses on a daily basis.
