Havelock North Junior Rugby Club
Anderson Park
22 Te Aute Rd
Havelock North

PO Box 670

Havelock North
Our club caters for all grades from Kindy Rippa 3yr & 4yrs then 5 year olds to Intermediate School age.

Over the years we have developed an excellent reputation for turning out talented young rugby players, many of whom have gone on to play for the All Blacks, NZ age group, Super Rugby, Hawkes Bay Magpies and Olympic, Worlds and Commonwealth Games Swimmer.

We are equally proud of the many young adults who have achieved success in other areas of life, using the attributes of team work, fair play and personal achievement they developed while with the Havelock North Junior Rugby Club.

Our mission is to install in each child a love for the game of rugby, in a safe and nurturing environment. In doing so, we want to ensure each player reaches his or her full potential, by emphasising the ideals of team work, sportsmanship, fair play and striving to achieve their personal best.
