Those interested should contact Thompson at sthompson@bcrugby.com

The competition has been confirmed for July 12-13 at the University of Victoria. As sevens rugby continues to build momentum towards its Olympic debut, Thompson and his tournament organizers have decided to open the competition up to more divisions, featuring both boys and girls participants.

The 2013 edition will feature the following competitions, with more details to be provided in the coming weeks. Please note the teams in U14 and U16 divisions will be regional representative sides (not club) and are to be selected in a similar format to the Provincial Regional Championships (ie North Vancouver Reps, Fraser Valley Reps, etc)

- Under-18 Boys Elite Division (By Invitation Only - Birth years 1995, '96)
- Under-16 Boys Representative Division (Birth years 1997, '98)
- Under-14 Boys Representative Division (Birth Years 1999, '200)
- Girls Division (Age grade TBC)

The tournament will also feature a International Coaching Symposium. Teams interested in participating are asked to contact Tournament Director Shane Thompson at (sthompson@bcrugby.com) to confirm the team name, and the age groups of interest.
