Some weekends, teams will need to travel to Waiheke, if this is your team, the ARU will subsidize $200 – which you obtain from Sandra to help with the fares for the players ONLY. The manager from the Waiheke team will contact our team manager to organise the trip over and will give you further details for the day.

All Junior coaches must attend a Small Black Course or a Jnr Coaching Expo - the NZRU have stipulated that this course is compulsory.
U8 teams must also attend an ARU Tackle Box event. This is where the ARU sign off that the coach and players are using the correct technique when tackling.
