Drew Stymiest/Head Coach

“We’ve got some really talented players-and the great thing about rugby in Canada right now is that kids are learning it at a younger age–kids are starting to play as young as 10 to 12 through mini programs at the club and also the under 14 program so there getting a good 3-4 years of rugby experience before they get to us….the biggest thing were trying to establish for them now is taking those basic rugby skills they’ve learned–catch-pass-tackle and bring them all together to make them work more as a cohesive unit….great group of kids–no issues–they come to practise–they work hard–there everything a coach could ask for.”
