Rugby camp for kids Thursday nights

Camp will help kids take their game to the next level

Westshore rugby spring academy has begun.

It is an eight-week co-ed program for kids aged eight to 14, and players from all clubs are welcome. Kelly Hanvey, director of youth rugby at Westshore RFC, said not to worry if kids missed the first session, they will take new players all the way through the eight-week program.

Hanvey said they had just over 20 athletes attend the first camp. It is a higher intensity camp for kids to work on strength and conditioning, and elite skills with instruction from ex and current international rugby players.

Spring academy takes place every Thursday 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Juan de Fuca fields and the Westshore Velodrome until June 28.

People can register in person or can visit online at bit.ly/2KeRvws.
