Venatour

Schools & Clubs - Canada

Magnificent destination for awesome sightseeing and sport!

You are spoilt for choice with Canada. Do you go East, West of Central or a bit of everything? The Eastern Seaboard is perfect for a tour in the summer months, where you can stick to the mainland and visit Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal, or add a bit of spice and include Nova Scotia or Newfoundland. Summer also lends itself well to including the likes of Alberta and the Rockies!

The West Coast is great for the October Half Term or Easter as the sport season is slightly different to the rest of the country. In Vancouver you are perfectly placed to hop over to Vancouver Island or make it a 2 country tour and drop down to Seattle.  


SPORTS & SEASONS

Rugby

May- Aug (East Coast)    Sep - May    (West Coast)               

You will play club or representative sides in most cases, although on the West Coast there is scope to play against schools where the rugby enjoys a good profile. Billeting is excellent and hosting out in the country areas is hard to beat!

Football

Sep-May

With the “Beckham” effect football has seen massive growth in recent years and a football tour to the Canada is most rewarding (They will love your accents). Full day coaching with stadium tours are also available.

Basketball

Sep-May

An excellent standard and fixtures widely available wherever you choose to travel to. Most touring sides make the most of the visit and have specialised coaching clinics with the pro clubs.


CULTURE 

With close links and English being the main language there are many similarities with the UK. Their love of sport is legendary and where possible you should try and get to watch a major sporting event, even if it isn’t a sport you are familiar with.

ACTIVITIES 

No visit to Alberta is complete without a visit to Head-Smashed-In-Buffalo-Jump! In Toronto you can head up the CN Tower or drive down to Niagara Falls, or in Vancouver visit Grouse Mountain or go whale watching from Victoria Harbour.

ACCOMMODATION

Plenty of choice from sports centers through to good 4 star central hotels – entirely dependent on your budget. Billeting not available.
