Senior Men

Our men's team is currently a member of the ORU Marshall Premiership. We annually yield strong results on the field and have an extremely active and supported social aspect off the field. We draw a player base from all parts of Ontario but specifically the Aurora and greater York Region.

We are committed to excellence and as a result, have a diverse and competitive pool of players. Our primary goals are to give our player base the ability to play rugby on the highest level and to promote our sport positively in the community.

We welcome any potential member to feel free to come to one of our training sessions or to join us in any of our numerous social events. We have various teams available for different rugby skills and ages and provide a safe and informed atmosphere for learning the game.

Registration can be arranged by contacting the Director of Senior Men's Rugby.
