As a club, we strive to give back to the Toronto, Ontario, and Canadian communities that give so much to us.
Toronto Inner City Rugby Foundation
Toronto Inner-City Rugby Foundation (TIRF) is a rugby-centred community development organization that uses rugby as a tool for social good. TIRF, a registered non-profit founded in 2011, builds community through rugby in 31 of Toronto’s underserved, low-income and priority neighbourhoods. Working in partnership with Rugby Canada; Rugby Ontario, nine Toronto rugby clubs; school boards and community service providers, TIRF reduces the financial, geographical, and cultural barriers that prevent children and youth from participating in the sport.
Iroquois Roots Rugby
Iroquois Roots Rugby’s mission is to deliver an Indigenous-led program that promotes the sport of rugby to First Nations youth in Ontario. The community-driven group has been running free training camps across Ontario for the past two years, helping to reduce barriers to sport participation, promoting physical activity as a fundamental element of health and well-being, and building capacity in the Canadian sport system to be inclusive of Indigenous people.
The grassroots organization seeks to engage Indigenous youth in the sport of rugby while honouring Indigenous culture and recognizing the unique environments of First Nations communities in Ontario.
Toronto Muddy York RFC is an inclusive rugby club based Toronto, Canada. As an inclusive club, Muddy York is open to all people regardless of experience, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, or disability.
Established in 2003 and governed by its constitution, the club primarily competes against teams in the Toronto Rugby Union. Muddy York also travels for exhibition matches against other teams, and hosts the annual Beaver Bowl Tournament, when the club invites other IGR (International Gay Rugby) and regional clubs to join them in Toronto over the Labour Day weekend.
The club’s name – Toronto Muddy York – is a tribute to the original name of its hometown. Team colours – blue and yellow – come from both the City of Toronto’s coat of arms, and the Rugby School in Warwickshire, where the game was created in 1823. Blue symbolizes tradition, loyalty, unity, and strength; while yellow symbolizes success, athletic achievements and joy.
The club welcomes members of all skill levels, from absolute novice to seasoned player. Participants benefit from a rewarding game that is not only physically challenging, but also fosters a profound sense of camaraderie both on and off the pitch.
