**A couple of important notes** 

* Covid may force changes during the season so we ask you to please be adaptable and patient as we all work through it.

*Rippa will be traveling teams only like all other rugby grades for 2022. With the aim of having U6 & U7 teams. 

*The age of eligibility for Junior Rugby being 4+ years old from January 1st 2022. These decisions weren’t made lightly and there was a lot of discussion and feedback around these changes.  They were made with the aim to make Junior Rugby as enjoyable as possible and a positive experience for all players.
