September 28, 2020 (Toronto, ON) — The Toronto Inner-City Rugby Foundation (TIRF) is a Toronto-based non-profit organization that aims to use rugby as a tool for social growth in low-income communities. As a youth-serving organization based in one of the worlds most diverse cities, TIRF has always believed in the strength of diversity and inclusion. As TIRF continues to uplift youth from at-risk communities throughout the GTA, they are excited to launch their newest diversity-driven initiative that is geared towards establishing inclusive athletic communities across Canada. 

In partnership with the Department of Canadian Heritage, TIRF is launching Everyone’s Game. The activity-based toolkit is designed to empower youth, support caring adults; and build partners-in-play. The toolkit equips coaches, facilitators and stakeholders with the skills and resources necessary to help athletes overcome the barriers of participation. 

Created using Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the toolkit focuses on three pillars that are essential to sparking the on-boarding of youth and caring parents from all diverse backgrounds into athletic communities. Designed to help youth unlock their full potential, Everyone’s Game is where innovation truly intersects with inclusion.

“Play is a fundamental human right,” says Amanda Neale-Robinson, the Executive Director of TIRF. “Together, we can help ensure youth today and tomorrow can become the best version of themselves on and off the field.”

With the introduction of Everyone’s Game, TIRF aims to redefine the meaning of diversity within the Canadian sport landscape. As the quest for social change is stronger than ever, Everyone’s Game possesses all the resources needed to continue creating social change within all sport communities. 

TIRF has always been a rugby-based, organization. However, this new initiative goes beyond the borders associated with their norms. Meant to be used by coaches and facilitators within any sport setting, Everyone’s Game is truly intended to be for everyone. 

Scheduled for Wednesday, September 30th, join the Toronto Inner-City Rugby Foundation for the official launch of the Everyone’s Game Toolkit. Joined by former professional athlete and motivational speaker Kwame Osei, the event will take place at 6 PM (EDT) via a virtual celebration.  For more information about Everyone’s Game and the official launch event, please visit thisiseveryonesgame.com
