WITH YOU.

Call for Rugby Assistant Coaches

Toronto Muddy York RFC is a progressive, ALL-INCLUSIVE rugby club for male-identified players in the Greater Toronto Area. The club serves the gay community and beyond. Established in 2003, we primarily compete against teams in the Toronto Rugby Union. We also travel for exhibition matches against other teams, and host our annual Beaver Bowl Tournament, when we invite other IGR (International Gay Rugby) and regional clubs to join us in Toronto over the Labour Day weekend. We also participate in the bi-annual Bingham Cup (upcoming in Amsterdam 2018).

Muddy York welcomes members of all skill levels, from absolute novice to seasoned players. Participants benefit from a rewarding game that is not only physically challenging, but also fosters a profound sense of camaraderie both on and off the pitch. The team runs evening practices on Tuesday and Thursdays, from 6:30-8:30pm at Jarvis Collegiate Institutes; and travels on Saturdays (except for long weekends) within the Southern Ontario region to compete against TRU member clubs.

As our club grows and welcomes new members, we are looking for up to 2 assistant coaches to take part in developing the team’s skills. Assistant coaches will work directly with our Head Coach to:

  • Develop and execute coaching plans
  • Run drills and provide direct feedback

Playing skill is not a prerequisite. We are looking for individuals who have the attitude and dedication necessary to help develop Muddy Yorkers.

Muddy York is a non-for-profit that is run by volunteers. As assistant coach, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Receive mentorship to develop rugby coaching skills with hands on experience
  • Receive assistance for courses and seminars required for the NCCP coaching certification
  • Ba part of a dynamic, friendly and supportive community
  • Travel and visit new cities

If you’re interested in becoming an assistant coach, please send an email to volunteer@muddyyork.ca. Let us know a bit about yourself and why you would like to help coach Muddy York.

Blue symbolizes tradition, loyalty, unity and strength; while yellow symbolizes success, athletic achievements and joy.
