Canada Misfits Rugby Inc. is a registered not-for-profit organization, who were incorporated in June 2018 and a member rugby club of both Rugby Canada and Rugby Ontario.
The Misfit7s development model is to give our players/coaches the best possible avenue towards developing and improving their rugby skills with meaningful competition at an affordable price. Our goal is to develop and maintain a deep player pool that will feed the provincial and national programs with well coached and motivated young athletes and aspiring coaches.
The Misfits first took to the pitch with a U18 Boys side in the Mag7s @ Fletcher’s Field in July 2016. The tournament was a great success finishing as cup finalist with only 10 players and one practice. In 2017, the U18 Boys returned in full force and entered the Mag7s, QMeta Cup and NYC7s winning each tournament and the Plate at NAI7s in Utah. In 2018, the Misfits expanded their programming from just one U18 Boys Program to include the following:
January 2018- Entered 2 x U20 Men’s teams into Seneca 7s Classic, Finished 1st and 2nd
April 2018- Entered U16 Boys (Runners-up) U16 Girls (U18 Girls Open Champions) to Tropical 7s
August 2018- Captured U20 Men’s NAI7s title & U18 NAI7s NAHS7s Finalist
Fall 2018- Captured all 4 major RO7s Boys Fall Titles including: U16B Whitcu7s, U18B TIRF, U18B Whitchu and U18B QMetaCup and finished runners up at all U18 Girls tournaments with a team entirely U16 Girls.
November 2018- Re-captured our second straight U18 Boys Elite title and first U18 Girls Open titles at NYC7s. Also, entered our first Men team into competition and finished as Cup Semi-finalists in the Mens Elite Bracket.
December 2018- Opened our very first Under 14 Boys Winter Program in Hastings, ON with players from: Ajax, Aurora, Brock, Cobourg, Lindsay and Peterborough (Eastern- Toronto Rugby area clubs) partaking in the bi-monthly session.
April 2019- Enter our first U14 Boys team into the Tropical 7s. They had a strong 4th place finish
We are proud to be a 100% Player- Driven program.
