Welcome to the Barrhaven Scottish Senior Men's Rugby Program

We are looking for players of all experiences and levels to join our club. We offer an inclusive, fun and dynamic program that focuses on optimizing the performance of all players through structured and highly motivating practices.

Our Senior Men’s program consists of two active teams; competing in the Eastern Ontario Rugby Union (EORU) League. We train twice a week during the evening with most matches on the weekends. Some matches are held on week nights depending on the schedule.

Our teams are made up of a range of experience including provincial and EORU representative players, University and College level players, as well as those new to the sport and seasoned veterans.

We believe that rugby is the greatest sport in the world and that community lies at its heart – so whether you are a new player or an experienced vet, you are welcome here!

Please get in touch with us at with any questions you may have!
