Welcome to Marist St Pat's junior rugby

Marist St Pats, one of Wellington's proudest and most successful sports clubs, has a strong family atmosphere.

We also have a vibrant club culture which extends to our large and well-run junior club. We offer:

  • a fun, family-friendly environment where school children can learn, play and develop their rugby
  • teams in all grades from under-6 to under-13, with non-tackle (RipRugby) for the younger players
  • family-friendly club rooms and regular Junior Nights

Junior grades in 2020

  • Little Rippas for kids aged 2 - 4 years - learn some basic ball skills and have some fun
  • RipRugby (non-tackle grades): fun for both boys and girls and a great way to develop basic ball skills - (separate under-6 and under-7 grades and now offering under 8/9 and under 10/11 grades in 2020 as an alternative to tackle rugby)
  • Tackle rugby (separate grades for under-8, under-9, under-10, under-11, under-12 and under-13)

Where we are based

Marist St Pats draws on Catholic and non-Catholic primary and intermediate schools throughout Wellington. Our gym is at Evan's Bay (view map), next to St Patrick's College in Kilbirnie, and our club rooms are in Hataitai (view map).

Coaching, managing and helping out

We need help with all aspects of running the Junior Club, especially coaching. Junior coaching is very rewarding. You'd be helping to develop young people's fitness, teamwork and confidence.

And full training is provided! Please let us know if you can help in anyway. Email junior convenor Bevan Brocklehurst if you have any questions.
