We're delighted to extend an invite to you and your primary school aged children/grandchildren and their friends (numbers are limited) to join us at our Kids Rugby Day on Tuesday 2 October (first week of the school holidays). We'll be welcoming players from the Taranaki team to facilitate this fun event.
This event will take place at Yarrow Stadium (Maratahu Street), from 11.30am - 1.00pm, on the number 2 field (Star Gym if it is wet weather).
A quick rundown of the day 11.15am
Children arrive and get ready for action, please note they'll need to bring rugby boots/ running shoes and comfortable clothes that they don't mind getting dirty and you don't mind cleaning!
Children will be introduced to the Taranaki players
Children will split into groups for passing, kicking, relays and rippa drills.
A rest and a water break.
Next rounds of passing, kicking, relays and rippa drills.
The rippa rugby games begin - note this is non contact rugby and kids will be split into two groups based on thier ages.
Please encourage your children to bring their jerseys, etc as they'll have an opportunity to have them signed by the players.
Wrap up with a BBQ
