- Rugby -

My name is Maija Weening and I am 16 years old. I have been playing for four years with the Rimbey Spartans. Starting in grade 8 I played for the junior Spartans team but was quickly recognized and was brought up to the U18 level at the age of twelve. When I was in grade 9 I competed with the Zone 4 summer games rugby 7’s team as the forward captain. I also played on the Titans U18 team for a summer and participated in the Titan’s first elite rugby tour to the United States. I have been invited to and have taken part in two University of Lethbridge scouting and training camps, both of which I was the youngest player that attended. During the winter of 2014-2015 I was also involved in a player development program through rugby Canada.
I am very excited to be participating in the ASDC training program during this off-season and look forward to achieving many goals in the future
