Marist Junior Rugby
We are a family orientated, community based club actively promoting the rugby experience. Our mission is to foster the participation, development and promotion of junior rugby in the Manawatu.
Junior rugby is great fun to play and is for all boys and girls under 13 years of age (as at 1 January).
The youngest grade in the Manawatu is U6 Rippa. We will register 5 year olds and confident 4 years olds in this grade.
Registrations for the 2020 are being held on the following dates at the Marist Clubrooms, Pascal Street, Palmerton North.
Sunday 23rd February
11am - 1:30pm
Wednesday 26th February
5pm - 7:30pm
Rippa rugby - U6 and U7
Tackle rugby - U8 to U13
Rip rugby - U8 and U9 (Non contact fast paced game that is a combination of Rippa rugby and 7's rugby where rips scrums and lineouts are formed and tags pulled)
Our fabulous team of volunteer committee, coaches and managers assist players to develop a lifelong passion for the game of rugby. Players learn the importance of fair play within a competitive team atmosphere whilst developing a positive attitude towards the hard work and practice that is needed to produce results in a team environment.
Marist Junior Rugby is proud to be a part of the Palmerston North Marist Sports Club and enjoys the use of the club-rooms and facilities in Pascal Street.
