To foster an inclusive, welcoming environment so that players of every shape, size, gender, age, ability, and skill level are able to participate in developmentally appropriate, controlled, competitive and enjoyable games. Use the game as the best teacher for teamwork, co-operation and respect between participants, coaches, players, officials, parents, and fans.

MISSION

Use a player-centred and development driven model to continually assess, adapt and improve appropriate law variations for all ages across Canada. We seek to ensure integrity, passion, solidarity, discipline and respect are central tenants for all considerations, decisions and variations made.

WHAT IS MASTERS RUGBY?

Masters rugby is the variation of rugby for players over the age of 35. The game is played with a combination of the World Rugby Laws of the game and additional variations explained throughout the Masters Law Variations Document. The variations are in place to ensure players of all ages and experience level can continue to participate in a safe and inclusive environment. The number one priority of the Masters Law Variations is safety and the variations explained throughout the document have been put in place with the welfare of the player in mind.
