Comments Off on Junior Touch – Cheap – Fun- Convenient

TOUCHRUGBY is once again pushing hard to grow and promote the beloved game to the Juniors of Auckland. Its about kids “running with the ball in hand” and off course keeping off their devices!

We have a special, low cost, school-based Junior Touch competition model that works well for kids and their busy parents. Our competitions are played in TERM 4 and TERM 1 of the regular school year. They are run in 2 7-week seasons. Kids, through motivated parents, coaches and teachers are grouped into their school years (and not age or weight). TouchRugby does all the admin of each competition but likes to partner with the LOCAL rugby clubs who are only too happy to allow use of their club rooms and facilities. Of course Auckland council, certainly comes to the party by providing well-marked, safe and sports grounds free of charge.

Depending on the location, Touch Rugby can charge between $30 to 40 per child per 7 week season, which as far as kids sports goes is very reasonable. We provide referees and a comprehensive draws and results package, trophies and of course official pathways for the talented and ambitious players to represent their Province!

Kids are encouraged to get together with school mates to enter. If their school does not play TOUCH or don’t promote the sport, Kids can ask their Winter sports mates (Rugby, Soccer, Netball etc) to group together and enter. Finally, and not without a lot of extra hours spent, individuals can be teamed up with other to form composite teams.

Once a team is formed, kids simply arrive and play their weekly fixture. Kids in school years 1-4, play 5-aside and are allowed a coach on the field at any time. A dropped ball or forward pass only counts as a TOUCH and not a turnover. Kids from year 5-8 will play proper FIT touch rules. The really talented children are also welcome to attend trials for one of the 3 Super City – Auckland, North Harbour or Counties Touch Associations.

Our 4 competitions are as follows
