Marist Junior Rugby
We are a family orientated, a 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.
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 the 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.
