Polson was born in London, Ontario and moved with his family to Victoria, British Columbia when he was seven. His father was an avid rugby enthusiast and quickly involved his sons playing mini rugby with the Velox Valhallians RFC.

In 2013 he graduated after majoring in Humanities and took two years off from rugby to recover from an injury.
In 2016 Polson resumed playing rugby with Castaway Wanderers RFC in Oak Bay, B.C. In August 2017 he was able to satisfy a dream of playing for the British Columbia Bears as they became national champions at the 2017 Canadian Rugby Championship defeating the undefeated Ontario Blues 34-31at Calgary Rugby Park.
Head Coach Tony Healy said, “Cam is an excellent man and fantastic athlete with enormous potential. He relishes hard work and is ambitious to find his best. The Seawolves will be the happy beneficiaries of Cam’s aspirations.”
Polson said, “I am excited to be heading south of the border to join the Seattle Seawolves for the inaugural MLR season.” Polson said. “The league is clearly going to be a very high caliber of rugby and I can’t wait for our squad to impose some West Coast dominance on the pitch. I’m ready for some hard yards.”
