It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that Mr Lee Sullivan has accepted the offer to coach the Senior Men’s 2nd Team, effective immediately.

Lee has explained he sees his role as providing good quality organization for the Men’s 2nd team to allow ample entertaining and enjoyable playing time on and off the field for all those committed to Bayside Rugby.  He is also very mindful of his role to assist the Men’s 1st Team coach, Mr Rob Verelli, with the development and identification of players for the Men’s 1st Team.

The Executive, Club Management and Coaching staffs are very excited to have Mr Sullivan in this role.  Mr Sullivan’s long time commitment to the Bayside Athletic Association as a player and coach at all levels – Junior, Senior, and Representative – bode well for the ongoing development of Bayside Rugby.

On behalf of everybody in our organization, I welcome Mr Lee Sullivan to his new and critical role within the Club.


It would be appreciated if you would complete, by Nov 23/15, the Surrey Parks and Rec survey at:

This is extremely important for our clubhouse construction.  Also, please consider forwarding the link to as many friends and family of Bayside Athletic Association as possible to complete the survey.

Please place this link on as many social media sites as you can access.

While many have completed this annual survey in the past, and even though our project is in the development phase, it is still extremely important to have another good response from the Rugby community. The importance of this survey cannot be understated or the response underestimated.

The 2 week survey ends Nov 23/15. Time is of the essence. Please notify all of urgency to respond

The last survey we had 268 responses (96 adults, 172 youth).  Let’s reach a goal of 500.

Critical questions worthy of comment are:

9. How satisfied are you with the “availability” of washroom facilities in Surrey’s athletic parks.

11. Would you support and make use of concession services in the park if they were available?

15. How satisfied are you with the customer service, provided by City staff, in relation to general inquiries, field booking information or response time to reported issues? – Delay in the start of construction

16. Please rank the following items in order of importance based on what you feel are the most important issues in Surrey Parks; #1 washroom and changing room availability.  Any comments regarding the club house would be beneficial



As a Club requirement performed every year we hold the Bayside Athletic Association Annual General Meeting.  Please be notified this year’s AGM will be held at:

ROTARY FIELD  HOUSE (14600 Rotary Way, South Surrey Athletic Park, Surrey)

Bayside u16 Sevens Team win Plate Final in North Star Tournament

The Bayside u16’s sevens team who participated in the North Star 7’s Tournament on September 12-13 were Plate Final Winners – Congratulations.
The team had five tough games and came across some very strong opposition including the Celtic Barbarian team from Calgary,  St. Georges and Capilano.  After a tough start to the tournament with a big loss against Capilano the team did well to secure wins against BC North Stars and Meralomas which took them to the Plate final with Capilano on Sunday.  With high spirits going into the final, the team took  their play to another level with great tackling and support which led to the boys running in three tries to one against Capilano.   Hard running and good tackling created great open play rugby with the whole team to be commended for their effort.

Bayside u18 Sevens Team win Plate Final at the North Star Tournament

The Bayside u18’s sevens team who participated in the North Star 7’s Tournament on September 12-13 were Plate Final Winners – Congratulations.
The team, which was made up mainly of u17’s, only had one loss in their five games against a very strong Celtic Barbarian team from Calgary.  Other teams in their draw included Capilano, VI Thunder, NWAA and BC North Stars.  Hard work, team effort, good tackling and exciting running sealed off a great two days of rugby with John Jubenvil and Jackson Silvester-Lee hooking up on a switch play which led to the victory try by Jackson against BC North Stars.u18_7s_Plate Winners_13Sep

Bayside Clubhouse Procurement Process

The following was of interest at the Bayside Clubhouse meeting on July 6/15.  People wanted to know how they could assist in the building of the Clubhouse.

We are currently working on the design of the clubhouse with the City and ThinkSpace Architects.  In order to maintain steady progress of developments, the City is starting to work on the procurement process.  They are currently working on a Prequalification for General Contractors. The Prequalification will be a Request For Expressions of Interest posted on the City’s website and BC Bid. Interested sub trades should contact GC’s to see if they are putting in an application. It is expect to be posted in the middle-end of August. GC’s who successfully qualify will be asked to bid on the tender when it is issued.

This is Bayside’s opportunity to identify a “Rugby” friendly GC.  I would like to have a qualified GC and sub trades from our Rugby community in charge of the construction.  This will help ensure we get the best bang for our buck, have a Clubhouse built by those that know what a clubhouse is for, and provide benefit to those that have been involved in Rugby.

Please give consideration to this request, pass on to any interested parties, and notify me of intentions by emailing
