Head Coach of the BC Elite Youth Sevens program Shane Thompson will be holding identification sessions in Victoria and Vancouver in the coming weeks to identify male athletes in the U16 and U15 (born in '97-'98) age grades.

The sessions will allow Thompson to see younger players in preparation for the upcoming Victoria International Sevens (July, 2013) which will add a U16 division this year. This group will also be identified for next year when Thompson plans to take the Elite Youth Sevens program to Las Vegas and Hong Kong to compete in international events.

The one day ID sessions are currently set for Victoria, Vancouver and North Vancouver with additional dates in the North Island, Okanagan and Abbotsford and/or White Rock to be confirmed.

About the BCEY7s program
As a result of rugby sevens being included into the Olympic games for 2016 and 2020, the British Columbia Rugby Union created the Elite Youth Sevens program. The sevens academy is designed to help develop young athletes into the rugby players who will be best qualified to represent Canada with distinction at future Olympic Games and Rugby World Cups. The program is geared towards identifying, training and developing athletes who can go on to represent their Regions, their Province and Canada at Age Grade Level and beyond.
