Many of the athletes, administrators and volunteers that we honour can be considered pioneers of rugby in Nova Scotia. Some have attained greatness on the pitch; others have dedicated unbounded hours and inexhaustible effort into the growth and development of our sport. Regardless of when or how their contributions were made, one common thread binds them together…their passion for the game. It is this passion that we honour by their induction into the Halifax Tars Rugby Football Club Hall of Fame.
Hall of Fame candidates, whether Athlete, Administrator, Coach, Trainer, Referee or any variety of volunteer must have made a major and lasting contribution to the Halifax Tars RFC. Athletes must be retired from competition for at least two years (however, the Hall of Fame Committee reserves the right to advance a candidate directly to the Hall of Fame by reason of outstanding pre-eminence and skill). Individuals may be inducted posthumously. A nominee’s candidacy will not be measured against the traditional benchmarks of categories such as player, administrator, builder et cetera, but rather on the candidate’s overall contribution to the club.
All members of the Tars Family, past or present, active or retired, player, official, builder or supporter; all members are invited to participate in the nominating and voting process for this year’s class of inductees to the Halifax Tars Hall of Fame.
