CW Juniors, often referred to as Age Grade, fields teams in the Fall in U14, U16 and U18 Divisions. U16 and U18 compete for Provincial titles. CW has been Runner Up at the Provincial level, three times in recent years and also with U18’s on two occasions, as well as winning this title in 2008 and 2015. The U16 program has featured in Island Finals for the past seven years, winning the title on a couple of occasions and being current title holders. CW is currently, the B.C. U16 Championship holder. The success of the program in the recent past can be attributable to players “coming through the ranks” from Mini Rugby to age grade, coupled with qualified coaches providing an emphasis on fitness and strength; sequential individual and team skill development; development of player confidence and team cohesiveness. Many players have attained representative honors with Team B.C. at Nationals, International Sevens events, B.C. Games and Regional Championships, far too many to mention. A number of these lads have gone on to represent University teams and we currently have ten players playing Premier rugby with CW or another club, who have “graduated” from CW Juniors. Six players have recently come from our programs to represent Canada at either the U17 or U20 level. There is no player that would regret joining our Junior Programs which are also strongly supported by parents.
NB. Age Grade competition for the 2017/18 season will be for U14 (born 2005, 2006), U16 (born 2003, 2004) and U18 (born 2001, 2002).
