U8-U10: Tackle rugby with boots played on half field

Playing Times and Locations 

U6-U7: Teams play on Saturday mornings from 8.30am to 12.00pm (times to be confirmed) at Arataki, on a half field. 

U8-U10: Games are played at Blake Park from 8.30am to 12.00pm throughout the season.

U11-13: Games are played at the Domain or away throughout the season.

Please refrain from contacting the committee and requesting teams or friends that you wish your child to play with.  The committee, when putting teams together, try to ensure continuity from year to year for existing players and for new children to the club, putting them with someone from the same school.  Please appreciate putting over 20 teams together is a massive exercise and we do our best to ensure this is done as fair as possible.
