2024 Junior Rugby & Rippa

The Junior section of the club provides a positive and healthy environment for the children of the community. 

Children from the age of 5years have the opportunity to play at the club, starting with Rippa Rugby – a non-contact, easy to play game for both boys and girls, then moving in to Tackle Rugby or branching off to Girls Rippa or Boys Rippa.

​​​​​​​Rugby for the juniors incorporates the Small Blacks Development Model taking the kids through the different phases of learning rugby.

The Helensville Rugby club caters for both Rugby and Rippa Junior players (boys & girls) from the age of 5 through to when they finish at club rugby and start high school.  

We have a thriving player base and a passionate and committed community of parents supporting them.
