The BC Games Society has announced that the 2018 BC Summer Games will take place in Cowichan. Up to 2808 athletes, 543 coaches, and 373 officials representing 18 sports will gather on Vancouver Island for four days of celebration and competition, July 19-22, 2018. Rugby Sevens will once again be part of the action, showcasing some of the best young female talent from across the province.
“2016 was a huge success for girls rugby in the BC Summer Games. It was the first time we were able to field a team in all eight zones and it has contributed to the growth of rugby throughout all of BC,” said Darcy Patterson, Development Officer for BC Rugby. “It was the catalyst to the recent Inaugural BC Rugby Girls’ Invitational 7’s Rugby Tournament in Kamloops. “We are excited to have this opportunity in 2018 and will look forward to the lasting effects of the Games on the growth of sevens rugby in BC.”
