Bayside is a community Rugby Club in Surrey, BC. We support men’s and women’s teams, beginners to international level and players from age 5 to 75. Our Goal at Bayside is to create an environment for players to develop their rugby skills as individuals and to build a strong and positive team environment.
In 1988 two young rugby clubs merged to form the Bayside Rugby Football Club. Tsawwassen RFC, situated on the north shore of the bay and Semiahmoo Old Boys RFC on the south shore had similar approaches to the game and their marriage was cause for optimism.
Over the past twenty-five years, the growth has been steady and successes have been earned. Bayside has twice been BCRU Premier Men’s runners-up, the last being in the spring of 2007. They won their first National Championship in the game of Seven-A-side rugby in 1997, have been perennial favourites, and are host to the hotly contested annual Bayside Sevens. as a result, Bayside emerged as one of the top Premier clubs in the country.
The future of the club is indeed a bright one. The rugby community in British Columbia has watched with surprise as Bayside made its way to the top of the Premier League standings. Bayside is a very young, progressive club that boasts the finest playing facilities in British Columbia. Our home field is located in South Surrey Athletic Park and provides a full international size pitch that showcases the high standard of play that Bayside has become famous for. Bayside enjoys a very high profile in the community of South Surrey.
The club fields 3 Senior Mens’ Teams, Women’s Div 1, U-19 Boys and Girls, U-16 Boys and Girls and U-14 Boys and Girls. The club also sponsors a Mini-Rugby program for boys and girls aged 5-13 years. Excellent coaching allows all players to play the game at the best of their abilities in a positive sporting environment.
The club takes great pride in the development that has been made over the past few years. Our goal is to continue to provide opportunities for all to play this great game in the true spirit of competition. it is no mistake that Bayside is recognized nationally as a hotbed of great young talent and we look forward to having the tradition continue into millennium.
