We are a Buderim based Junior Rugby Union Club, playing in the Sunshine Coast Rugby Union Junior Competition.

We welcome children from all schools to enjoy our wonderful team environment and facilities.  Our clubhouse and playing fields are situated on the beautiful grounds of Matthew Flinders Anglican College, on Ballinger Road in Buderim.

You DO NOT have to attend the school in order to play for the junior rugby club.

Players and their families will become a part of our broader rugby club family and we’re confident you’ll enjoy being involved in many of the fun events we plan for the season for both children and older family members.  Children will learn to embrace our core values of integrity, courage, innovation, excellence and respect.

We run mixed teams to cater for children aged 5 to 13  (age groups U6 – U13).

Under 6s  and Under 7s play touch rugby.

Contact rugby is safely introduced at U8 and minimally contested scrums are introduced at U10.

All coaches and match officials will be aided to meet minimum training qualifications to ensure player safety is paramount.  Contrary to popular belief, there is a lower proportion of  injuries in Rugby aged 6-13 than in Soccer.
