A relatively new nation on the international rugby stage, Canada is growing in reputation every year. The rugby season in the eastern states runs from late April until early November. In the west it is played from September to April.
Canada is also a popular destination for women’s sport, especially ladies’ football which is played to a high standard throughout the country.
Cricket, football, hockey and netball are all played during the summer months so a combined tour is certainly a possibility.
Tours to Canada either head west to British Colombia or east to Ontario and Quebec. In the west, teams tend to play their fixtures in Calgary, Edmonton & Vancouver and tour the spectacular scenery of the rugged Pacific Coast, the Rocky Mountains and National Parks of Banff and Jasper. If you time things right, you can even take in the Calgary Stampede!
In the east, a tour takes you around the vibrant cities of Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec and incorporates a trip to the fantastic Niagara Falls.
SIMON VINCENT, Tour Leader, Bryanston School Rugby Tour to Canada – July 2016
We all had a great tour and thoroughly enjoyed all the activities laid on. As it turned out there was a nice pace to the tour and the break at the Eco lodge came at a great time. Particularly good from the boys’ point of view were the training sessions at the Molson Stadium and the Tim Horton Stadium, which made a real impact.
