Rippa rugby is an entry level game introducing the kids to running with the rugby ball, passing and working as a team. This is non-contact and the kids wear a belt and tags to simulate a tackle. Games are played on Thursdays at Waipuna Park. All teams will be mixed with 7 players on the field with up to 3 substitutes that can rotate at any time. There must be at least one girl on the field for the duration of the game. All teams will need a coach. Referees and equipment will be provided by BOP Rugby Union. Players wear our school PE shirt and sports shorts. Players play in bare feet, no shoes or rugby boots.
Games are between: 4:00pm to 5:30pm - games are 30 minutes - A draw will be sent to schools for the season.
