Rugby Academy

2021-2022 

Shoreline Middle School is proud to offer a very special athletic opportunity. The Rugby Academy Program (R.A.P.) is in its fourth year at Shoreline and we are building on the successes of the previous years’ programs. The R.A.P. is open to all students in grade 6, 7 and 8. Students who have completed all of their school work, have permission from their teachers and parents/guardians are able to develop their rugby skills as part of this program. 

It should be understood that no experience or area of expertise is necessary for students to engage in the program. In addition to the Rugby Academy Program offered at the school we also will be fielding tackle rugby teams in April and May. These are in addition to the R.A.P.  

In an effort to provide mentoring opportunities for the students involved in the program we have partnered with the Rugby Academy Program at Esquimalt High, the Thunder Rugby Program at the Songhees Nation and members of the UVIC rugby team. 

The program will begin on Monday, Nov. 29th and run on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons during block 5 (1:36 – 2:50). Students will meet Mr. Seaberg in the cafeteria and then go out on to the field for practice. Student-athletes will not require any additional equipment, however, a change of clothes is recommended given the winter weather conditions. Please be advised that we will be going outside rain or shine. 

Please reach out to Mr. Seaberg at mseaberg@sd61.bc.ca if you have any questions or concerns.  

Thank you,
