MARIST JUNIOR RUGBY CLUB DAY - Sunday 26th March 2023

At the Marist Clubrooms, 17A Pascal Street

It is important to attend Club Day, as this is when you find out what team your child is in.  This is also the first opportunity for players and their parents to meet their Coach and other members of their team. 

Times will be posted closer to the time as we will be holding up to 3 sessions for rippa, U8-U10 and U11-U13 grades.

JUNIOR RUGBY UNIFORM   -   All players MUST turn out in the correct uniform

Your jersey is supplied by the club and is to be returned at the end of the season.  Marist Junior Rugby socks and shorts are available from Kellys’ Footwear, on Main Street.  Shorts are $39.50 and socks $14. 

Kellys’ run a special offer for all MJR families – when purchasing a pair of rugby boots, let them know you are from MJR and receive a FREE pair of MJR socks (RRP $14).  Players in all grades must wear rugby boots.  Please note that for safety reasons players are not permitted to wear boxer shorts under their rugby shorts.  


We are introducing a new style Marist Junior Rugby Hoodie for 2023, this will be a sports performance material with a green lined hood, drawstring and stitching across the shoulders, with the ability to have a name of your choice printed on the back at the bottom. Our logo, which was updated last year, will remain the same.  

Childrens sizes (4-12) will cost $52 inc GST and Adults sizes (XS-3XL) $57.

Marist Junior Rugby T-Shirts are available, in stock, and can be purchased at registration days.  We are not ordering any more stock of these in 2023.  Both children and adult sizes are $30. 

Hoodies can be tried on for size and ordered at our Registration Days.

(N.B.  Orders will not be completed unless full payment is received).


The season begins on Saturday, 29th April and finishes on Saturday, 19th August.  We wrap up the 2023 season with the Marist Junior Rugby 7’s Tournament on Sunday 20th August.  Prize giving will be held at the Marist Clubrooms on Sunday 27th August.
