Jim Drohan is pleased to announce a new Jr Director, Chris Kalbfleisch. See Jim’s missive below! 6 Nations Broadcasts and more will be detailed soon.
“It is with great pleasure I announce that Chris Kalbfleisch will be taking on the role of Director of BBC Junior Rugby. I have included many of the BBC sections and Rugby stakeholders in this note but I ask that you share the news with any others who should be aware.
As a second row he as cleverly cropped his ears out of all photo’s. He has 30 years of Rugby starting in Ottawa High-School and club play with Ottawa Beavers. In 1999, he commenced wearing the blue and gold of the BBC and played 10 seasons – primarily with the Mighty Thirds of TRU legend. Chris has a deep commitment to the club and rugby is a passion. Chris is a multi-sport junior coach (rugby, hockey and baseball) with his Respect in Sport and IRB Level 1 certification. He started coaching junior rugby at the Beach in 2015 and is committed to making the experience a fun and engaging way to bring kids into the rugby community and grow our great game.
I greatly look forward to supporting Chris in the transition to his new role and continuing in my capacity as treasure for the program in 2017.
For those of you already committed to the program for 2017 I thank you in advance for your continued support. We are in the hunt for additional coaching support for 2017 with a very specific need for help at U16. We have lots of need for additional help outside coaching and anyone interested in assisting with the program should contact Chris . We have on-going needs for; team/parent communication, equipment management, fund raising, field painting, tour management, etc.
