Rugby is one of the most beloved sports around the world, and a sport that is seeing passionate support growing from fans across Canada. Supporting our men’s and women’s teams does not only mean on the world stage, but also on the journey that begins at the grassroots level leading right up to our national teams.
How well our players are assisted in the vital years of their development impacts their personal and team achievements at the highest level.
At Rugby Canada, we are committed to building a system for developing the most competitive athletes possible. Our goal in 2018 is to provide the best access to the resources our athletes need most to succeed. Now, more than ever, assistance from enthusiasts like you are instrumental in their success.
Participation has reached an all-time high and through programs such as the Rugby Canada’s HSBC Rookie Rugby, presented by Honda, this trend is sure to grow. With the success of our Canadian athletes competing in Rugby World Cups and Olympic Games, it is our hope that every young player is inspired and has access to the resources that will help them reach their greatest potential.
Rugby inspires camaraderie and respect among players, teaches discipline, and rewards hard work and passion. Rugby is a sport that creates a community; it’s one that is inclusive of all players regardless of background or culture, and it unites our country from coast to coast.
Together, we can empower our Canadian athletes to reach for winning performances that will catapult us on the world stage. It’s up to us all to invest in the dream and to envision our game being played in every school and community, and with pride in stadiums around the globe.
