Rising Stars

TIRF Rising Stars Enhanced Training Program

Do you have talent, drive, and determination to be a high-performance athlete? We want you to be the best version of yourself as both a young person and as an athlete. TIRF believes that a cost-to-participate shouldn’t stand in your way to play at a more competitive level. This is why we started the TIRF Rising Stars Program, to coach players just like you, who want to be a high-performance athlete. The Rising Stars program runs through the winter, starting in January and ends in April. Its inclusive curriculum looks to build well rounded athletes while focusing offensive and defensive mechanics.

By participating in Rising Stars, you have the opportunity to train with notable Toronto coaches and players, play in Canada Touch Rugby League, international rugby tours, scholarship information sessions and access to prep-for-rep sessions.

All that’s standing in your way is you. Join this year's Rising Stars. This is your pathway to competitive and elite representative rugby.


In order to train with TIRF Rising Stars, players must meet the following requirements:

  • be between ages 14 to 19
  • be “TIRF Eligible
  • be a registered junior rugby player or willing to register under TIRF
