Canada Touch Rugby is excited to announce that O’neills will be providing ALL teams in each of the CTR leagues with customizable jerseys for the upcoming 2018-19 season. Each team will be given the opportunity to create unique designs choosing their own colour, logos, and styles providing a more personal touch for everyone involved. O’neills will also be supplying all game balls for the season.

Richard McCarter of O’neills says, “it’s great to be involved with CTR and we are looking forward to continue developing the relationship over the coming years. O’neills is marking its 100th year anniversary this year and it’s exciting to see our products being used internationally from grassroots to professional level rugby.”

Founder of CTR, Steve Shortly believes that teams will appreciate the quality of the product O’neills has to offer. “In the past we have provided jerseys for our teams, which worked fine, but with O’neills on board, the quality of the product is far superior than what we have used in previous seasons. Not to mention, this gives our players the capability to design their own gear which is something we know people will appreciate.”

Registration for the Canada Touch Rugby Fall/Winter seasons will be available August 3rd, 2018. Venues include The Hangar (Downsview Park Toronto), Burlington Dome- Sherwood Forest Park, and Upper Canada College (Toronto- winter season only). For those looking to get an early jump on the season, to learn the game, or to get out to socialize while exercising (or all of the above) CTR is hosting a summer tournament in Burlington at Sherwood Forest Park on August 19th.

REGISTER HERE. O’neills jersey samples will be on display, and game balls for this coming season will be used for the tournament.

Please email for more information on any of the above.

Canada Touch Rugby is set to host the Grand Finals this coming Sunday from 1-3pm at The Hangar Sport and Event Centre. This year is unique in that the top three teams from each respective league (U.C.C., The Hangar, and Burlington) will be competing to hoist the ‘CTR Cup.’ In previous years, only the top team from each league was invited to compete.

“With additional top caliber teams in this years finals, we feel this tournament will be a true representation of the CTR Champions considering the growing talent pool in each of our member leagues,” Steve Shortly says.

What ever happens on the day it should be a fun day for all considering the Grand Final week is a ‘bonus’ rugby week for all teams invited to compete. With that being said, it sure would be nice to have bragging rights for this one. Teams competing are posted below and for those interested, the tournament bracket will be posted in the next few days.

Good luck to all teams participating this coming weekend!
