Discover the joys and benefits of playing rugby
Engaging in rugby is not only a fantastic way for kids to stay active, but it also fosters motivation and keeps them mentally and physically fit.
Moorabbin Rugby Club have a proud history in Junior Rugby Development and we're always working hard to give our kids the best rugby experience possible.
Under 6 - Under 11 Age Groups
Have fun, make friends, learn rugby
Our younger age groups are given the opportunity to give rugby a go, have fun and build friendships in a supportive and inclusive environment. Kids train once or twice a week and then play a non-competition match against teams from other Clubs in the Rugby Victoria Junior Competition rounds. Discover the joys of rugby with our U6s - U11s program!
Under 12 - Under 18 Age Groups
Unlock your potential
As our kids grow and develop, playing rugby gives them the opportunity to unlock their potential, in a safe and positive environment. For our U12s - U18s, there is a clear shift towards a more structured training and competition format allowing our older kids the chance to unlock peak performance and maximise their potential. Rugby Victoria operate a round-robin competition whereby our U12s-U18s teams get the opportunity to play weekly games against other Clubs, ending the season with a thrilling finals series. The competitions cater for all who wish to get involved with the game and while kids have the opportunity to compete and develop their skills, they also unlock all the positives of the game including great team camaraderie and life long friendships.
In the 2023 Season, we fielded a number of teams in the Rugby Victoria Junior Competition from U6s right through to U18s. Our U11s and U12s teams both made finals and our U12s finished 2nd on the ladder and named the Rugby Victoria Runners Up for 2023.
Moorabbin Rugby Club have dedicated rugby facilities with modern club rooms, two playing fields, canteen and gym facilities. Conveniently located on Keys Road, Moorabbin, in the heart of Kingston City Council, Harold Caterson Reserve is within easy access to neighbouring Bayside and Frankston cities and is in close proximity to the M11 freeway and the surrounding areas.
