Wests Junior Rugby Club
Nursery Grade for 3 and 4 year olds. The sessions are held on a Sunday morning in the Wests indoor training facility. The focus of the sessions are on basic skills, ball handling and lots of fun. The sessions are about 45 minutes each and will be held throughout the standard junior rugby season.
Small Black Rugby for players who are below the age of 7 on 1st January of the playing year. These are non-tackle grades where they will play “Rippa Rugby”. The games are 7 aside and each team usually contains 8-9 players. We do our best to keep players within their school groupings. The games are 20 minutes per half.
