KRFC Selects Coaches for U17 and U19 Teams
Date: May 9, 1992
This article was taken from May 9, 1992 edition of The Rugby Sideline, a quarterly newsletter that was distributed by mail to the local rugby community by the KRFC Executive quarterly in 1992/93.
The coaches and managers for the Kelowna U17 and U19 teams have been chosen. These gentlemen will be involved in team selection in early June, and wil finalize a game schedule for our rep sides later this month.
The U17 side will be coached by Dave Arsenault, a quality coach with representative experience. Mike Roberts will be the U17 Team Manager. These two gentlemen will organize a few games in preparation for our boys competing for spots on the Okanagan U17 Team which competes at the BC Summer Games.
The U19 is fortunate to have Gord Marano as coach this year. Gord has successfully co-coched the Okanagan U17's to several outstanding performances at the Summer Games and will be taking his talents to the older players this year. Bob Rimmer and Ron Fazackerly will be sharing the managerial duties for the team. It is planned that the team will compete in exhibition games against Fraser Valley and Vancouver U19 sides this fall.
Players interested in U17 or U19 rep rugby should inform their school coaches of their interest. Tryout schedules will be distributed in the near future. U19 players not attending secondary school should contact Gord Marano directly regarding your interest. (h) 769-3563, (w) 769-4414.
