Yr 3-6 Rippa Rugby Team Information

COACHES NEEDED: For parents that are interested in coaching this sport, please email emmac@sunnynookschool.nz . There are free coaching courses organised by North Harbour Rugby.

OTHER INFORMATION: Rippa Rugby is a non-contact game designed to maintain the skills of rugby but without contact tackling. “Tackles” are made by ripping a tag from the attachers Velcro belt requiring the ball carrier to pass to another teammate. The grades that we enter teams in are 7 aside Year 3/4 Girls and Boys are 10 aside Year 5/6 Girls and Boys grades. If there are not enough girls to form a team, we are able to place girls into the boy’s team. Mouth guards are recommended and all players will play in bare feet.
