Tour IN

July 9 2019 Brentwood Schools (England) u14 & u16 this school team proved to be very good on the pitch and gentleman off of the pitch in a fine School Rugby touring tradition. Traveling over from Essex, they came in for an afternoon match and had an excellent time meeting the club and playing some rugby. 

July 10 2019 West Monmouth (Wales) came over, third trip to the club and was billeted for a few days by our members. The touring team had a chance to see the lay of our land, by touring around Whatcom County, going to Mt. Baker and enjoying some our local eatery's. The rugby was well played and an even contest was on display. 

Can Am 7s Tournament

Congratulations to Bayside Men on their 7th win in the 41 year history. Congratulations to Budd Bay Women on their first CanAm 7s win! Great Day and really a wonderful example of our club coming together to be great hosts and volunteer so many hours to host this event! #oneclub

Summer Camp

Summer Camp for kids grades k-8 was a massive success and great to see how the kids progressively improved as the week went along. Camp Coach Chris Rowell did an outstanding job of recruiting 8 or so local coaches to come on out to give him a hand and to lead our Next Generation on improving their rugby. Really Good Stuff! thanks to Chris and the entire Coaching Camp Leaders on a great job! 

Community Coaching Education Session

Our club, lead by Chris Rowell and Caleb Schlack introduced and refined the "Rugby Tackle" on how our sport and coaching progresses with safer tackle techniques. This is our 2nd year we have hosted American Football coaches at the club to discuss this topic and to exchange ideas with other local coaches. All Good! All Good for the Kids!
