A regional identification camp for rugby players from Langley, Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows takes place this weekend.
The Langley Rugby Club (21280 Crush Crescent) is hosting a player development and identification camp on Saturday (May 26) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Registration begins at 10 a.m. and the camp gets underway a half hour later.
Two teams will be selected: a U16 squad (for players born in 1996 and 1997) and a U18 team ((born in 1994 and 1995).
The session will focus on basic skills (kicking, passing, tackling), as well as defensive alignment, offensive strategy and set pieces.
All players must bring mouth guards, their own tape — a trainer will be on hand to assist — scrum caps, water bottle and a small lunch or snack.
The Central Fraser Valley teams will compete at the provincial regional rugby championships, which are being held July 6 to 8 at UBC.
Players who make the team will practice on Tuesday and Thursday nights for the month of June.
