GILBERT AWARD WINNER - BYRON McALLISTER
Bryon McAllister is the Director of Junior Boys at Castaway Wanderers Rugby Club and has been on the executive for three years now. He’s seen their registration numbers grow over the past few years. His home club was one of a few clubs still offering rugby training during Covid, following stringent guidelines. Bryon now is also the chair of Junior Tide Rugby. Tide is the representative team on South Vancouver Island that participates in the annual PRC tournament in Vancouver. From this team they’ve had many players selected to play for their Province and some for Canada selection camps. This past summer Bryon took on one of the manager positions for the Western Canadian U16 Champions, BC Bears. He found it to be a great learning experience and opportunity to be exposed to provincial level programs. He is also involved in Middle School Glanford and High School Claremont, rugby programs. Being a point of contact to handle any organizational duties so the coaches can focus on coaching, is Byron's mantra. 'onya, Byron
