The spring rugby season is off to a great start at Chatelech Secondary School.

On Friday, March 28, the Chatelech rugby team travelled to North Vancouver for an all-day rugby camp hosted by the Capilanos Rugby Club.

"The camp involved instructors who are playing for or in the national team program as coaches," said Chatelech coach Brian Scarr.

"Andrea Burke of Canada's Women's Sevens program was on hand. She can outplay a lot of the guys at the premier level. It was great for our boys to be coached by such a great female player. We are making plans to bring Andrea up to the Coast to help us get a girls program going."

Scarr said the camp was phenomenal with 15 players from Chatelech in grades 8 to 12 taking part.

And because several of Chatelech's players could not attend, a number of the instructors will be coming up to the Coast for a follow-up session.

Scarr said Chatelech has specific Sevens goals in place, including entering a junior boys team into the upcoming Lower Mainland Sevens provincial qualifier later in April in North Vancouver.

"We're keen on getting games for all levels," he said. "We are still in training pre-season mode, but we have certainly started out in a top-notch manner."
