Toronto Buccaneers Juniors
In 2012 the Toronto Buccaneers fielded the club’s first ever U16 junior team. Based on the great success of our young squad (making it to the championship match in our division!) the Buccaneers fielded an additional U18 junior side for the 2013 season, both of which have flourished to this day.
The Buccaneers are also proud to be a partner club with the Toronto Innner-City Rugby Foundation, a program designed to bring together schools, clubs and the rugby community to support student athletes from lower income and immigrant-rich neighbourhoods to improve their athletic skills and to adopt the rugby ethos of hard work, discipline, and mutual respect. TIRF allows some juniors from select schools to play summer club rugby at significantly reduced costs. To find out eligibility, and/or to register directly through the TIRF website, please visit http://tirfrugby.ca
The Buccaneers from Marc Garneau Collegiate Institute, part of the TIRF program, came up with the following video in support. Special thanks to 2012 captain Victor Cho for his filming and editing work:
