TIRF Rising Stars Enhanced Training Program

You’ve got 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, to transform into a high-performance athlete. The Rising Stars program runs through the winter (January to April) and the fall (August to November).

As a registered TIRF player, you have the opportunity to train with notable Toronto coaches, play in Rugby Ontario sanctioned tournaments, touring sides, access to prep-for-rep sessions, and, when available, financial support through an athletic bursary.

All that’s standing in your way is you.

Register today and 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 18
– be “TIRF Eligible
– be a registered junior rugby player or willing to register under TIRF
