The Westshore RFC Board of Directors are pleased to announce an exciting new initiative. The Westshore Wizards 7’s Rugby program, spearheaded by former Canadian International Team member – Mike Scholz.
Training sessions are open to both men and women and will host free sessions to youth players throughout the year. The program was designed to cater to the ever increasing growth in sevens rugby and will provide a platform for players wanting to play sevens at a higher level.
Mike Scholz started playing rugby in his home town of Oakville, Ontario starting with the Oakville Trafalgar High School and then the Oakville Crusaders Rugby Club. In 2007 Mikes raw athleticism and natural ability would lead him to the world stage being selected to represent Canada at the U-19 World Cup in Ireland, and again in 2008 at the U-20 World Cup in Wales. A member of the mighty Niagara Thunder, and later won a CRC championship with the Ontario Blues. He won his first Senior XV’s Cap in November of 2009 in a win vs Russia and was a member of the 2011 World Cup squad. Sevens would become Mikes sole focus post 2011 World Cup as he earned his first 7s cap at Hong Kong in 2010, and was a member of the National Mens 7’s squad until 2016. He won a Pan Am Games gold medal in Guadalajara, Mexico in 2011 and represented Canada at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014. Retired due to injuries in 2016.
