School Rugby Tour to Canada

Best time to travel: May to July

A school rugby tour to Canada will give your team the opportunity to experience a country where the sport is becoming increasingly more popular. One of the areas where rugby is most popular is Ontario, which is why you’ll stay in its capital, Toronto.

You’ll enjoy the famous Canadian hospitality and spectacular landscapes. You’ll also have the chance to make a real impact on the rugby scene here, by taking on local opposition of a similar standard to your team

There’s also the added bonus of being able to have a go at a number of North American sports rarely played in the UK, such as baseball, basketball and American or Canadian football.
