Rookie Rugby

Thank you Rookie Rugby People!

We are sad to say our Rookie Rugby program has finished for the Spring.

We are delighted to say that the program was a great success and would like to thank all the Youth Development Officers, Volunteers, Parents, Coaches, Instructors and most importantly the kids for being a part of this wonderful program!

Rookie Rugby is split into 3 different categories/age grades. The following is a general breakdown of the age groups for each category:

Mini - 4 - 6 years old (DOB 2011-2013) - $60 registration fee

Flag - 7 - 14 years old (DOB 2003-2010)  - $65 registration fee

Tackle - 11 - 13 years old (DOB 2004-2006) & 14 - 16 years old (DOB 2003-2001) -  - $75 registration fee

The tournaments for our programs are for Flag & Tackle kids only.* 

Program runs from April 22-23rd until the end of June.

Rookie Rugby Spring 2017 - Session completed

Spring 2017

Our Spring 2017 Rookie Rugby programming has ended for the Spring.

Please look out for us in various Community Centers throughout the Summer leading into the Fall.


Rookie Rugby is typically a co-ed, non-tackling game for children ages 4-16 although we do have tackle programs for kids aged 11-6 years of age.  Rookie Rugby is a fun and active start to being part of a team through the joy of rugby.  By developing the principles for the love of physical activity, team work and the skills of rugby at early ages we are aiming to develop strong values and skills that can be used throughout a lifetime.

Registration is now  closed for Spring 2017!

*Some sites will host walk up registrations as well. Please contact your local club for details if they are hosting a walk up night

  • Please note not all sites hold tackle sessions. Please refer to the tackle tab below to find out which sites offer tackle times. 
  • And some clubs may charge an additional club membership fee, we will provide that information for you at registration as well.
