Rippa Tournament (Year 4, 5 and 6)

Kia ora Whanau,

Today was the last day for getting in Rippa Rugby forms for the upcoming tournament. We have plenty of really keen kids, it will be a great day down at the fields. In Toroa class we have already starting training for this event. From Week 4 we will be receiving some formal coaching from the NZ Rugby Union, when the tournament rolls around, our kids will be feeling pretty confident in their abilities.

the rules than the open grade. ‘A’ grade teams are competing to go to the Taranaki
finals and try to win a spot in the Nationals
 We run an open grade ‘B’ grade for a range of Year 4-6 kids. You van enter more than
one team in this grade. This is a great developmental opportunity.
