Halifax Tars RFC Hall of Fame

The Halifax Tars RFC Hall of Fame pays tribute to the great personalities of our club, who through their unique commitment and dedication have in some profound way set an outstanding example for others to follow and in doing so, have immeasurably enriched our organization while promoting its standing within the rugby and civic communities.


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.


Nominations for those to be considered for induction into the Tars Hall of Fame’s class of 2021 must be submitted to the Hall of Fame Committee at the email address shown below no later than Jan 1, 2020.  A nomination must be accompanied by a brief description of the candidate’s contributions to the club. And while it is an earnest goal of the Hall of Fame Committee to honourably recognize contributions from individuals of all eras, the Tars Hall of Fame Committee does not affirm a minimum nor maximum number of Inductees from any particular Era into forthcoming Hall of Fame classes, due to the vagaries of the nomination process.

Subsequent to receipt of the nominations, the Hall of Fame Committee will review the names put forward and publish a list of finalists within 2 weeks of the Awards Banquet.
