Preparing learners for now and the future

Sports - Rippa Rugby

Term 4, Monday 30 October to Monday 4 December

Cost: $10.00 per player

RIppa Rugby is rugby without the tackle, instead you rip a tag. This local competition is run by BOP Rugby Union.

Any age children are welcome to give this a go, although 5 & 6 year olds take a while to understand the game. Games will be played on Monday afternoons at the Western Ave Sports grounds in Omokoroa.

Game times are between 4.00pm – 6.00pm, with our younger children playing first, 30 minutes per game.

For this tournament to be successful we are dependent on parents to offer to manage and coach our teams. Older siblings help with this too would be most appreciated. Please indicate below if you can assist. BOPRU will supply referees for this competition.

All children are required to complete the attached NZ Rippa Rugby player 2017 new registration, please submit the online form. The cost for Rippa Rugby this term is $10.00 per player and must be paid on registration.

A prize giving will be held on the last afternoon of play after the games. Please submit registration by due date to secure your child a place in one of our teams. Children registering late cannot be guaranteed a place on a team as all children and school teams need to be registered with the BOPRU to be able to take part in this competition.
