May 4, 2014 (ISN) – The Dog River Howlers Rugby Club are sending one U-16 boys and two U-17 girls sides to the Heidelberg International Youth Sevens Rugby Tournament being played in Heidelberg Germany on June 14 and 15.

This is the third year that the boys will have competed placing 3rd in 2012 and 5th in 2013. Our girls team will be part of the inaugural girls division. The 21 team tournament has national teams from Holland, Israel, Monaco and Kenya along with provincial sides from France, Germany and Canada (BC is sending a U-16 boys team).

Former Canadian National Team players Shannon Kane and Derek Daypuck are coaching the girls sides with current University Of Victoria and former Canadian National 7’s coach Doug Tate heading up the boys team.

For many of these young aspring players this will be a stepping stone towards reaching their ultimate goal of playing for their country,especially in the Olympic Games !!
