Boarding School Rugby Programs


There are so many reasons to love rugby. While boarding school rugby can be a great starting point if you have aspirations to professional rugby, it can also be a challenging secondary sport if you are pursuing other athletics, or it can simply be a riot of fun. And there is strong talk that rugby sevens will be included as an Olympic sport by 2016.

Rugby can be seen as a model boarding school sport – and as the most physically demanding and essentially toughest team sport in sports history.

Boarding school serves as one of few places where high school aged students can get a taste of rugby. Rugby – for both girls and boys – is an ideal way to challenge yourself to be your best. Many first time rugby players are surprised by what a unique challenge it is. As one rookie rugby player told us: "You have to co-operate really well to make it work. I never played it before I came here."

The Canadian Association of Independent Schools holds an annual three-day invitational tournament, at which boarding schools such as Ashbury College most often figure strongly in the winner's circle.

"Never in my life would I have tried it. I was afraid I might get hurt. But when all your friends are playing and they tell you how fun it is and how great the tournaments are, you want to try it too."
