Rugby Camps

Ponsonby Rugby offer 4 day programmes each week of the school holidays in April and July. Our rugby programmes focus on developing the basics of the game, building confidence and ensuring our young players have plenty of fun!  

Most of our coaches have teaching experience and some have represented Auckland in Rugby therefore your child could be coached by tomorrows next superstar!

Groups are split into age.

  • Ripper Rats: Ripper Rugby for players aged 5-7 (must be at school)
  • Contact Club: Developing confidence in contact for players aged 7-8
  • ITM Cup: Players aged 8-10 that currently play tackle rugby
  • Super Rugby: Aimed at players that play full field rugby up to the age of 13.

Each player that completes the full rugby camp receives a free T shirt and there are prizes to be won each day!

Thank you to our 2017 prize sponsors Pita Pit Ponsonby, Uptown Bounce, Clip n Climb, Auckland Zoo and Around the World Mini Golf. Your ongoing support is much appreciated!

Here’s what some of the parents said about our previous Rugby programme:

"Thanks Ponsonby Junior Rugby Club for putting on another stellar week of junior rugby via the school holiday programme. Rugby Camp (as my boys like to call it) has been a great way for my boys to get back into rugby and prepare for a first season of contact. They had loads of fun, mixed it up with new kids and were very tired come home time. Thanks Nathan and all the coaching team for delivering a sporting week. We're all looking forward to the coming rugby season." - Tash

“This was a fabulous programme. Thank you so much Nathan, our son was very impressed with his coaches. They also had a great rapport with the kids. Well done! “ – Shane

“Thanks Nathan and team for a great week of rugby. William loved it and met some great boys who love rugby just as much as him! Was really well run and he learnt so much but also had heaps of fun. See you at the next one!” – Sarah

“ Our kids loved this programme! The coaches were awesome with the kids and taught them new skills and they gained confidence going into contact. We saw the benefit of being in your programme with improved performances from both our sons in their next games. We look forward to the next one already! ” – Jeremy
