There are three teams for boys: Under 45 kg, Under 55 kg and Open Weight.  The girls’ team is Open Weight.

Players are expected to commit to at least one practice per week at a time agreed with their coach.


Trials for all teams are held late in Term 1 or Term 2 depending on ground conditions.  Trial dates and times are published in daily notices.


The three boys’ teams compete in the Central Zones competition in Term 2.  There are also several lead-up games against local schools, all held during school time.

The girls’ team competes in the Central Zones competition in Term 2.

For 2023, the CZ competitions will be held on 31 May 2023.


The only cost associated with participating in rugby is bus transport.  The school provides uniforms (apart from boots).

Coaching and Team Management

Teams are coached and managed by volunteers so we rely heavily upon support from parents and friends to ensure that our teams participate.  We also rely on parents for transport to some games.

During the registration process, there is an opportunity to indicate any assistance offers.
