Director - Girls Youth Program & U19 Girls Head Coach
Olly will not only be on point for all of our Girl's Age Grade programs, he will once again, specifically serve as Head Coach for the Girl's U19 team. Olly, a native of Montreal, came to our program from UVIC over seven years ago. As an education student, he began working with our younger girls (U14) in his first year. As his young charges grew, he has grown along with them and is now a qualified teacher, working in the Sooke District with an impressive coaching resume. Olly is a NCCP & World Rugby Level 2 coach and is currently working towards a Master’s degree in Coaching Studies at UVIC He has made significant contributions at the club, school, regional (Tide) and provincial (BC) teams. This will be Olly's fourth year with the U19s and he will be paired with our stalwart contributor to the CW youth program (girls and boys), Aaron Cook.
Always willing to contribute, he has been both a coach, trainer and referee in the girl's program and he manages to do all of this while still playing senior men's rugby. We are excited to have him back for his sixth year with the girls program.
