Junior Rugby

Girls Touch 7's (non-contact)

Rugby Victoria run two Girls Touch 7's competitions at the U11 & U15's age groups.  Because of the non-contact format of Touch 7's the age range for each competition is larger with players who are aged 8 and above able to play in the U11's and players aged 12 and above able to play in the U15's.  All teams play in the one location each week and enjoy a competitive but social environment.


Southern Districts has teams in both age groups and welcomes all new players to the club and to give Touch 7's a go. 

Girls Contact Rugby

Rugby Victoria run a girls contact Rugby competition at the U16 age group.


Southern Districts is aiming to form a Girls Rugby team in 2022 and invites all interested players to contact the club here.

Pathways (U6 & U7)

Rebel Rascals is a program delivered to the U6 age group and is designed to teach basic rugby skills through fun activities, games and small sided rugby games.  Rebel Rascals is initially delivered by Rugby Victoria Development Officers and then passed onto team coaches once the teams are established.


U7's play friendly seven-a-side games of touch rugby with the focus on skill development and sportsmanship.   

Junior Rugby (U8-U10)

Rugby Victoria run a non-competition age group from U8's-10's in a fun format for all abilities. These non-competitions are run for the purpose of introducing the sport of rugby, with an emphasis of having fun and everyone getting involved, rather then winning.

Junior Rugby (U11-U18)

U11-U18 is structured competition rugby. All teams play in a weekly home and away competition which lead to a finals series in August/September. 


The competitions cater for all who wish to get involved with the game, with many age groups broken down into "A" and "B" competitions which are based on team ability.
