The Celtic Barbarians Rugby Football Club is a North American based program that has grown from two clubs joining to tour California in 2008, to a membership of over 300 players and staff. Along our travels, we have gathered like-minded rugby enthusiasts who share the same principles and characteristics that we believe make rugby unique worldwide. We pride ourselves in offering touring experiences for athletes of both Developmental and Elite levels.
Our coaching staff is primarily comprised of:
- Rugby Canada coaches
- Provincial coaches from BC and Alberta
- USA University and EIRA Regional Rep. coaches
- International coaches such as Waisale Serevi and Orene Ai’i.
Invitations to our group are based on character reference by our network of staff and players spanning North America and the UK. Billeting is a key component to our travels and players are expected to be Ladies and Gentlemen ambassadors of rugby. Through our competitive play and ability to entertain, we have hosted several touring sides from the United Kingdom over the past decade.
Our touring squads have now developed relationships throughout North America and Britain with boys and girls squads ranging from U12-U19 and our new elite men’s and women’s 7s teams. We have just completed our 44th tour worldwide to the LA 7s with recent Gold Medals for our boys and girls at the Paris World Games.
