  2. What’s "dual membership"?
    A dual membership allows you to become a member of both TIRF and one of our partner local rugby clubs. With this dual membership, you can play subsidized club rugby at a reduced price ($40) and also participate in TIRF programming and events. 
  3.  How do I know which rugby club I should join as a dual member along with TIRF? 
    Here’s a link to a list of rugby clubs that are partners with TIRF. We’re happy to make recommendations, but ultimately you should figure out which club works best for you considering your schedule, location, and other needs. If you live outside the city of Toronto, you won't be eligible for TIRF, but you search the Rugby Ontario website here to find other club options. 
  4. What does TIRF eligible mean?
    To be eligible for a TIRF membership, you must be between 6 – 19 years of age and either attend a TIRF school, reside in one of Toronto’s neighbourhood improvement areas, or require financial assistance to access rugby (determined on a case-by-case basis).

  5. What is this membership for?
    A dual membership provides you with the opportunity to become part of the TIRF network, enjoy TIRF programming, learn about volunteer opportunities, become eligible for scholarships, attend rugby-related events, and most importantly, covers your insurance to be able to play the sport. 
  6. I’ve never played rugby before, is that OK?
    Yes! All are welcome regardless of experience or skill level. 
  7. Does this cost money? How do I pay?
    If you sign up as a dual member with TIRF, the total membership cost for club rugby and TIRF programming is $40. Your annual membership fee is paid online via credit card through our membership software: Sportlomo. We know that not everyone has access to available credit, if you need to explore alternative payment options, please contact us. We will work with your chosen rugby club to arrange for you to be able to pay for your membership in a method that works for you and ensure that there is a record of payment. 
  8. How long does my membership last?
    Memberships last one year (April to April) and need to be renewed after each year. Be sure to periodically check your spam email folder to see if a renewal email has been sent.
