Student Profile

Team BC Rugby member Dan Frost

Dan Frost

The support I received from Team BTC and my Scholarship helped to develop all aspects of my game and gave me the platform for my international selection. I particularly enjoyed the video analysis of my individual performance and it was a great insight into the aspects of my game I need to develop.”
