Rugby Academy

The Esquimalt High School Rugby Academy focuses on academics and creating well-rounded citizens while using the sport of rugby to facilitate and encourage high student achievement.  Not at all exclusive to elite level athletes, this academy is open to a diverse group of student athletes:  male and female, all academic paths, cultures and financial backgrounds.

This community integrated program will feature coaching and mentoring from Canadian National Team Athletes housed in Victoria and will work closely with Rugby Canada at both athlete and more importantly citizen development.  The academy focuses on academic excellence through the pursuit of school, community and athletic involvement

Students who wish to apply to the program must complete the Rugby Academy Application.  It is available at the main office or available of the ESQ website If a student is interested in exploring how the Academy can fit into their academic program they can make an appointment with one of  the counsellors by calling 250-382-9226.
