The Capilano Rugby Football Club is a Canadian rugby union team based in West Vancouver, British Columbia. The Capilano Rugby Football Club currently play in the British Columbia Premiership and have won the BC Premier Championship three times.

History[edit]

The Capilano Rugby Football Club is the product of the amalgamation of two rugby clubs, the North Shore All-Blacks and the West Vancouver Barbarians, in 1969. Before the merger the North Shore All-Blacks were dominant in the 1930s capturing the British Columbia championship three years in a row from 1933 to 1935 and again in 1937, 1948, and 1955. The Capilanos continue to be a strong contender in the modern era winning three championships of their own in 2004 and 2005. Most recently, the Capilanos defeated James Bay Athletic Association 22-21 in the 2011-12 BC Premiership final to win their third provincial championship as the Capilano Rugby Football Club.[1]

Facilities[edit]

In 1982 a deal was struck with West Vancouver to designate Klahanie Park the home of North Shore Rugby and continues to be the home ground of the Capilano RFC.
