Tars RFC is the largest rugby football club in Atlantic Canada. The club was founded in 1974 and has grown considerably throughout the years; currently fielding 4 Men’s and Women’s sides and our own Mini rugby contingent. Our 2019 registration boasted well over 100 players while our pool of alumni stretches far beyond Canadian borders, including those who are currently playing professionally and representing the country on an international level.
While all our sides have had considerable success on the pitch in recent years, our club prides itself more for our involvement fostering the sport of Rugby in Halifax and Nova Scotia. Many of our members also volunteer, coach or referee rugby at the high school, university, provincial, regional and national level. Our membership is comprised of a diverse mix of people of all ages and backgrounds from all areas of the world, much like the Tar sailors who first helped bring the game to Canada through the port of Halifax
