Junior Tide Rugby u19 program is represented by male athletes (born from 2005 to 2007) from Southern Vancouver Island selected to compete in the Dunbar Keg in September 2024.  The competition provides development and identification opportunities for U20 male athletes, enabling each region’s top junior boys to bridge the gap between competing in Senior competitions and help to retain them within Rugby programming.

BC Rugby will be the only provincial sports organization with a best-on-best Regional U19 competition that is strategically placed ahead of the annual Rugby Canada U20 Program selection and campaign. This competition will provide an advantage to BC U20 pathway athletes and directly benefit BC Rugby’s Senior Fall Leagues to develop these players for their respective Club’s season commencement.
