If you’re a young rugby player between 16 and 19 with aspirations to play high performance rugby at university, in the MLR or for the national team then you should probably tap into the UBC Academy.
UBC has been one of the main suppliers to the Canada U20 men’s team and several of its players have moved onto MLR teams including Michael Smith (San Diego), Fraser Hurst (Utah), Nakai Penny (Seattle) and Ben LeSage (Toronto).
Leading the Academy is Curry Hitchborn who is well respected in the rugby coaching community and has contacts throughout the MLR.
