Adam Roberts who has been heavily involved in rugby development in BC has taken the initiative to organize a meeting December 4th, specifically looking at growing the boys game at the high school level in BC. His note is below along with a link to register.
He provides some compelling stats on the need to reverse the trend at the high school level. A 22% decrease in high school rugby teams and a 28% decrease in rugby athletes from 2012 to 2017 in BC.
