I am transgender, can I play on a side which aligns with my gender identity?
Yes! Whether you play on a men’s team or a women’s team depends only on how you self-idenfiy. All of the games we play are sanctioned by organizations which have clear non-discrimination policies. Rugby Ontario, which sanctions all of our league games, states this in their operations manual as follows:
… the principle and practice of fair and equitable allocation of resources and opportunities and to encourage participation by all Ontarians regardless of race, and ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex (gender), sexual orientation, sexual identification, disability, age, marital status or family status.
