A total of 188 teams and 1880 players will rip it up at in the final week of the Rippa Rugby and Quick Rip modules across the Western Bay of Plenty.
The TECT Rippa Rugby modules proudly supported by TECT have had students participating from year two to year eight in the five modules.
This term has seen the introduction of Quick Rip in the year five and six age groups following the success in the year seven and eight group.
Western Bay of Plenty Rugby Junior Rugby Manager Kendra Reynolds acknowledges the growth in the players over the past term.
“It is great to see the development of the kids participating week in and week out. With the inclusion of not just Rippa Rugby for our year fives and sixes it gives them that little extra taste into what rugby is all about in a controlled environment,” she says.
“It is great to have the support from all those who make these modules possible from referees to parents to the sports coordinators who make this all possible for the kids. Their help allows us to give kids the opportunity to participate in something active but loads of fun.”
