Green Island Junior Rugby Club

By GI Community Worker | Posted: Wednesday April 25, 2018

Looking for a great rugby club for kids in Dunedin? Yep, that's right.....footy season is on our doorstep already.

Quality Rugby:

Our Club has a thriving Junior Grade group, from Under 5 aged "Nippers" through to Under 13 "Junior Premiers". In 2017 we fielded 22 Junior sides, from rippa rugby through to tackle grades. We have great coaching resources within our club ranks (parents & senior players) to mentor the youngsters and help them grow into confident capable players.


Core Values are important to us at Green Island (GI) and this contributes to our strong club culture. We like to win just as much as any other club, but we also look to develop our players equally off the field.


Registrations for the 2018 season are now open.

If you want your child to play for Green Island, please register by clicking here and then we'll be in touch shortly about playing for our fantastic club.


Tight Club Bond:

Our senior club players and junior club players enjoy a tight bond that is the envy of every other club in Dunedin. It is common to see the Premier players down on the paddock assisting in Junior training skills & drills sessions and actively involved in prizegiving and other Junior events.

Most Saturday mornings you will find Premier & Senior players supporting our GI youngsters from the sideline; and then Junior players reciprocating by running out with the Premiers and then cheering them on fervently at Saturday afternoon home games!

Thriving Social Scene:

We have a thriving social membership of loyal supporters - diverse in age, from young to mature. We are sure you will find our members to be most welcoming, and that you and your kids will quickly find yourself happily settled at Green Island with a new band of friends. The Club endeavours to cater for all family members in the various events and functions organised.

So as you can see... we are a family orientated club, and a great place to learn the great game of rugby.


Fees for this year are $50 for 1 child and $90 for a family of 2 or more. Every child receives a free mouthguard with registration. A minimum of 50% of fees must be paid at registration, with a payment plan for the balance. Uniforms will be handed over upon full payment being completed.

Please contact Junior Club Secretary, Tracey Boereboom, here if you have any questions.

We are looking forward to a fantastic 2018 rugby season.
