History:

The uOttawa Gee Gee’s Men’s Rugby Club was founded in 2002 and played its first game in the fall of that year. The team is a certified, registered club with Sport Services of the University of Ottawa and is a member of Rugby Ontario and Rugby Canada.

Where the team is going:

2016 marks the first year the team will participate in a league playing against other university teams guaranteeing us more games and steady competition against other strong rugby teams.

UOttawa will carry two teams, a Division 1 and Division 2. The team is also moving to a full school year program, continuing training and competing into the winter months.  

The team will be welcoming a new coaching team this year. It is an exciting time to be part of the program!
