BC Rugby’s Elite Youth Sevens Program is focused on identifying and developing talent for Rugby Sevens events.  The program is open to male and female athletes who were born between 2000-2003.  The program includes a talent identification process, followed by regional training and selection camps leading to final team selections.  More details about the process can be found on this page, or by contacting the program leaders.  Selected teams will have the opportunity to represent BC in tournaments in both Canada and the USA including the Vancouver Rugby Festival and Las Vegas Invitational.

Development

The BC Rugby Elite Youth Sevens (BCEYS) will be a direct pathway into the Jr. Maple Leaf 7’s Team and Sr. Maple Leafs 7’s teams.  To be eligible for selection into the Jr. National 7’s team players must be actively involved in the BCEYS program.  For the first time in histor, Canada will send a JR. National 7s Team to Las Vegas to qualify for the Youth Olympics.  Players involved in the BCEYS program will be on a direct pathway to represent Canada in the Qualifier and potentially the Youth Olympic Games!
