U8 – U10
Victorian Rugby run a non-competition age group from 8 years old to 10 years old in a fun format for all abilities. These non-competitions are run for the purpose of introducing the sport of rugby, with an emphasis of having fun and everyone getting involved, rather then winning.
This is a great way to get your child involved in the great game of rugby in a safe and positive environment.
U11-U18 is structured competition rugby. All teams play in a round-robin competition which lead to a finals series in August/September.
The competitions cater for all who wish to get involved with the game, with many age groups broken down into "A" and "B" competitions.
