Our clubhouse is at Klahanie Park – 305 Klahanie Court, West Vancouver, B.C. V7P 3P5.
The clubhouse is also the home of Capilano RFC who formed in 1969 after the amalgamation of the North Shore All-Blacks and the West Vancouver Barbarians, two teams that had been playing locally since the 1930s.
From its humble beginnings playing on “borrowed” fields and using a small second-floor warehouse space at the bottom of Lonsdale as a clubhouse, the Capilano club took steps to move forward and secure permanent grounds with an adjoining clubhouse. In 1982 a deal was struck with West Vancouver District to designate Klahanie Park the home of North Shore Rugby. “Klahanie” in the local First Nations dialect means “Welcome”.
After ongoing numerous renovations and improvements, the clubhouse and field facilities have become the park of choice for hosting major games in British Columbia. In the past few years Klahanie has been used for a variety of B.C. representative, Canada Junior and other feature matches. Test sides from Canada, Japan, Georgia, the United States, New Zealand, Hong Kong and England have all used its grounds and clubhouse for training.
To celebrate the 75th anniversary of rugby on the North Shore, the Club has undertaken the steps to improve the facilities — doubling the size of the clubhouse, adding a new bar and kitchen, change rooms and showers and upstairs washrooms.
