Come and Try Rugby is a fun sports program for boys and girls aged between 5 and 14 years.

It caters for all abilities and experiences and provides safe, fun activities and modified Rugby games.

The on-field program focuses on the development of basic hand eye coordination and movement.

Parents are welcome to get involved, or they can socially enjoy the Rugby activities from the sideline.

Come and Try Rugby is aimed at such a large range of ages and experience, the activities are based on the philosophies demonstrated within the ARU's modified games. They have been specifically adapted to be more suitable for the players’ stage of life, physical capability, health status, skill level and previous experience. They are safe to play yet still challenging. They have altered aspects of adult rugby laws to make them more suitable, such as the size of the ball, the playing area, the length of games, and the number of players on the field.

Each Come and Try program is unique, therefore look carefully at the targetted age groups.
