Vancouver, BC – March 13, 2020: BC Rugby and Elite Youth 7s Boys Head Coach Adam Roberts are excited to announce the BC Elite Youth 7s Boys’ Dream Teams from the 2020 Vancouver Sevens Invitational tournament. Roberts, as well as the four regional team leads, expressed their excitement for the growth and popularity of the Elite Youth 7s program.

Elite Youth 7s Boys’ Head Coach Adam Roberts:

“It was a fantastic two days for the newly re-vamped BC Elite Youth 7s Boys’ program at the Vancouver Sevens Invitational. The program has been split into 4 Regions (Mainland, Interior, Island, and Valley) over 2 age groups (U16 and U18). The leads of each region have done a fantastic job, cultivating the interest in sevens rugby in their region and getting the most out of their development.

Our philosophy heading into the BC Elite Youth 7s Boys’ season was to engage the various regions, engage as many athletes as possible and really start to build the base of skillful rugby players in BC. The program’s on field success was highlighted by the amount of kids we exposed to the sport of 7’s. However due to all the development over the past 2 months the teams all found success through winning.”

BC Valley Team Lead Phil Llewelyn:

“We have had a training group of over 40 players pushing each other. Our skills and understanding of the game has improved tremendously since the start.”

BC Interior Team Lead Leana Marton:

“The exposure to more high level competition throughout the year with the Elite Youth 7s program has been exactly what the boys from the interior have needed.”

BC Mainland Team Lead Aaron McLelland:

“We need to continue to evolve these programs. There is a demand for sevens rugby, and with the VSI in our backyard, this is a great place to build the next generation of sevens players.”

BC Island Team Lead Dustin Dobravsky:

“The players have responded very well to the training, and have shown a keen interest in this program. We have so many kids wanting to get involved it is a great problem to have.”

Following the conclusion of the tournament, Roberts announced the BC Dream Team selections for the BC U16 and U18 boys’ programs.
