Rugby Canada Identification Camp

large_news1154912_1100753-1.jpgLast weekend, some of the top female rugby players from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, and Newfoundland were invited to the East Hants Sportsplex to participate in an identification camp run by Rugby Canada’s Senior Women’s head coach Sandro Fiorino. Three of our students, Amy Marchand-Dion, Morgan Rogers, and Camryn Kleynhans were invited to participate.

Morgan and Camryn were both able to attend the two-day event, while Amy was unable to attend due to her basketball commitments here at School. Over the course of the weekend, the girls took part in both on-field sessions to improve their skills, but also off-field ones which focused on their individual goals and the pathways available to them through the national program.
Provincial coach, Jack Hanratty, who also facilitated the weekend, has been very impressed with these two girls’ progress over the last 18 months. “Camryn” commented Hanratty, “was invited due to her raw ability [and though] she is still very young, we are excited to see how far she can get”. When speaking about Morgan, he noted that “she was a crucial part of our national Silver medal winning (U18 Provincial) team, and she is such an athlete she can play numerous positions”.

While both of these girls remain committed to their respective winter sports, they are eagerly anticipating the start to our spring rugby season.

We want every child to find an activity he or she can pursue with passion. With three seasons of sports and over 25 different choices, we are pretty sure your child will find a few to love. Download our Athletics Photojournal to discover more sports at KES.
