Ottawa Indians Rugby Football ClubThe Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club is a community oriented rugby club, based out of the West End of Ottawa, Ontario, the capital city of Canada. The Ottawa Indians offer several programs that range from mini rugby for kids, junior competitive rugby for high school ages and premier competitive programs for senior men and women. The Ottawa Indians welcome people from all backgrounds and diversity for our social and competitive teams. The Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club is a non-profit organization that is committed to developing the growth of rugby in Ottawa and in Eastern Ontario, from grassroots to high level competition.

The Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club

provides its players with a great opportunity to learn, develop, and refine rugby skills and leadership from top level qualified coaches. The coaches main priority is to create a positive environment where to grow the club and the Eastern Ontario Rugby Union programs by providing all the players with engaging and motivating instruction.

Established in 1962, the Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club have been part of the Ottawa community by coaching in local high schools, by participating in the Ottawa’s Annual Spring Clean Up, and with some of our social events supporting charities such as the Canadian Paraplegic Association.

The club is named after the actual Ottawa Indians tribe, which traces their origins to the Ottawa River area, although through many forced migrations now live in Oklahoma.

The Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year, 2012.

History of the Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club

The Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club was founded in 1962 (yes this year – 2012 – is our 50th anniversary) after a split from the Ottawa Beavers. This split was coordinated to increase the number of clubs playing in the Ottawa area.

At the time the Beavers had to travel to Montreal and Toronto to play all of their games. As such the Beavers and ourselves are the two oldest clubs in Ottawa and still get along quite well off the pitch (on the pitch is a different matter).

The Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club today

This brings us to today. Currently the Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club runs two senior men’s teams, one senior women’s team, and the U16/U18 junior boys and varsity junior women.

Additionally the Ottawa Indians Rugby Football Club youth program has teams for all ages such as U6, U8, U10, U12 and U14.

Twin Elm General Manager – Job Description

Two weeks ago Ottawa Indians RFC member Conor Mullen was selected on the bench for team Canada U20 in a match against U BC.  To go one better this past Saturday night at Westhills Stadium and the Canadian Rugby Centre of Excellence, Conor started as hooker for the same Canada U20 team against U Vic Vikes. Unfortunately the team was beaten 16-10 by U Vic, but this is a huge honour for Conor and I wish for you to join me in congratulating him on his achievement as the only player currently playing for an Ottawa club and one of only two players on the roster from the Ottawa area.

Congrats Conor!
