CANADA SUMMER GAMES

August 6-21, 2022, Brock University will host the Rugby Sevens leg of the Canada Summer Games. This will be the inaugural Rugby Sevens competition for the Canada Summer Games and the first-ever appearance of women’s rugby in the Games. Following a COVID-19 delay, Team Saskatchewan will be begin recruiting and training for this competition starting in June 2021. 

RUGBY IN THE GAMES

Rugby Sevens will be among 18 sports featured at the Games, taking place the summer of 2022 in Ontario’s Niagra Region. Consisting of more than 5,000 athletes and coaches, the 2022 Canada Games will welcome our nation’s next generation of national, international, and Olympic champions as the best young developing athletes from across the nation assemble to compete in Canada’s largest multi-sport event.
 
One of the oldest sports to be featured at the Niagara 2022 Games, Rugby Sevens has exploded in recent years, partly due to the success of the national Canadian women’s team. Men’s rugby first joined the Canada Summer Games program for back to back Games in 1981 and 1985, and after sitting out the 1989 Games, returned from 1993-2009. This will be the inaugural Rugby Sevens competition for the Canada Summer Games and the first-ever appearance of women’s rugby in the Games.
