Rugby a team effort at Journey Middle School

Both boys and girls have teams entered in league play

Rugby is a team effort at Journey Middle School, says teacher Robert Bryan.

With the emphasis on enjoying and learning the fine art of rugby, both boys and girls have entered teams in league play this year, under the auspices of the Journey Rugby Club

The goal is for every student to learn how to play rugby safely, to understand the rules, to develop the skills appropriate for their age level and to have fun, Bryan said.

Partnering with EMCS rugby staff and students, Canadian national team coaching staff, parents and staff at Journey are preparing their teams for the Middle School Rugby League which begins in the first week of April.

“We’ve been practicing since the end of February with touch rugby at lunchtime and the students are excited and keen to begin full contact games with other schools after Spring Break” said Bryan, the new boys rugby coach at JMS.

The girls rugby squad is led again this year by Journey teachers Katrina Abell, Grania Bridal and Claire Wilkie.
