We are thrilled to announce that Rugby Victoria will be running a dedicated Girls Rugby competition in 2018!

This is a fantastic milestone that all of the Victorian Rugby community can be proud of and one that we are absolutely delighted by, given the role that our girls have played in making this possible.

If your daughter would like to be part of this historic first season, we would love to have her part of our great girls program.

Here are some basic details:

Under 12-Under15s Touch7s
Non-contact, great fun for all girls turning 12-15 in 2018.  Play for your Club for the chance to win the inaugural Girls Touch7s trophy!  Make a little history, register now or come down to our open training nights to see if Touch7s is right for you.

Training nights: Tuesday 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Game time: 12:30pm – 1:30pm Saturdays, from 21 April, 2 games played each Saturday

You can join in Tuesdays, Saturdays or both!

Under 11 Touch7s
Non-contact, great fun for all girls turning 7-11 in 2018. Get together with your friends or make some new ones playing Touch7s.  It’s great fun and really easy to learn – if you can run with a ball in your hands, you’re playing Touch7s!

Training nights: Tuesday 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Game time: 12:30pm – 1:30pm Saturdays, from 21 April, 2 games played each Saturday

You can join in Tuesdays, Saturdays or both!

Saturday’s games for all girls will be played at one ground to continue to build the buzz around girls rugby.

What if I want to play traditional contact rugby?
We encourage all girls to try the contact version of rugby which from 2018 will be governed by weight-for-age bandings.

Rugby offers a way for kids to test themselves and learn to manage their physical capabilities in a positive, welcoming, team-based environment.   Our game is truly ‘a game for all’ – no other sport provides an opportunity for all kids, no matter their size or shape, to play and enjoy sport.

All our junior contact teams are mixed, meaning girls can play U8-U12 tackle rugby in Hawthorn in 2018.  We want YOU! Register now!
