Under 6 – Under 12

Ever dreamt of being the next Wallaby like Israel Folau, Quade Cooper or Adam Ashley-Cooper?

Well the new Try Rugby Kids Pathway has been designed especially to help get you started and on your way to a lifelong involvement in this great game called Rugby Union.

The TryRugby Kids Pathway – for all U6–U12 year olds

Aim and philosophy

The aim of the new Kids Pathway for U6 to U12 players is to provide a series of age-specific modified rugby games. These modified rugby games progressively develop the individual skills, fitness and team work of all players in accordance with their physical maturity and understanding of the game.
The philosophy is child-centred and ensures all players receive the greatest possible participation and enjoyment from playing the game of Rugby.

Why the change?

The new Kids Pathway has been developed to:

  • Increase activity levels for maximum participation and enjoyment.
  • Meets the developmental needs of young Rugby players in line with the safety focus of the modern game.
  • Provide an integrated and consistent approach to the development of U6 to U12 players, coaches and referees across the country from 2011 and beyond.
