BC Rugby – Vancouver, BC – June 29-July 1, 2019: The Provincial Regional Championships (PRCs), sponsored by B2Gold, concluded yesterday after three days of action-packed youth rugby.  The tournament, one of the highlights of the rugby calendar in BC, took place at the Gerald McGavin Rugby Centre at UBC with nearly 50 regional teams vying for glory across six divisions.

There was a wonderful, festival-like atmosphere surrounding the venue over the Canada Day long weekend with scores of passionate supporters cheering on from the touchlines.  Near perfect weather and pristine pitch conditions set the stage for a thoroughly memorable event for all involved.

The top spots in each division were claimed by teams from Vancouver Island Tide (VIRU) and Fraser Valley East (FVRU), with both regions collecting three gold medals each.  Thompson Okanagan Rugby Alliance (TORA) claimed three silver medals while teams from the Vancouver Rugby Union (VRU) secured a total of five podium places and North Vancouver Island Tsunami (NVIRU) collected a bronze.

In total, nearly 1000 players were in attendance over the three days, along with hundreds of committed parents and supporters, dozens of coaching staff, match officials and organisers. Nearly 4000 minutes of competitive rugby were played, showcasing some of the very best Age-Grade rugby talent in the Province. The enthusiasm from the athletes was palpable and they consistently delivered exciting end to end rugby action, much to the delight of onlookers.

BC Rugby would like to make a number of thanks to groups and individuals. To the match officials, coaching staff, parents, supporters, players and volunteers who all played their part in making the tournament such an enjoyable and successful affair. Also to Canadian National Men’s Team players Admir Cejvanovic, Justin Douglas and Lucas Hammond for attending the event and inspiring the young athletes. Finally to our Sponsor B2Gold for their continued support of youth rugby in BC.
