Now that the BC Championships and school rugby are over, it's time for representative rugby. The typical summer path includes being selected for your regional team (Valley) which competes at the PRC's (Provincial Regional Championships). From there athletes are selected to the Provincial Team (BC), with which they compete at the National Festival. From this tournament, Canada selectors identify players they feel deserve to be invited to Canada camps. Read more for the info that has been released for summer trials thus far.
