Ed Knaggs

Coach - U12-U14 Girls

Ed Knaggs has had a long association with CW as both a player and now stalwart coach in the mini and girl's program.  He was born in Trinidad, grew up in Nova Scotia and made his way out to BC when he graduated from Dalhousie Engineering.


He plays a special role in the girls program as the bridging coach for our growing contingent of U10 and U12 girls.   He has a keen interest in moving these girls through to the U14 bracket as both of his daughters are part of the U10 and U12 age brackets.


He came to rugby in his late teens and excelled from the outset.    His career stared as U19 representative player for Nova Scotia and culminated in a total of 20 caps for Canada and stellar performance in the 2003 World Cup vs the All Blacks.


He also has extensive experience coaching and leading our mini program over the last 8 years before handing the reigns to Erin Vipond.


Ed works for the local branch of HES PV (one of CW's sponsors), Canada's leading Solar Electric companies.
