At Northcote, we are always referring to the ‘Cote Family’ and we welcome everyone to join and be a part of that. With many forms of the game, we often refer to ourselves more as a sports club and aim to be seen as a great place to learn about being in a team sport.
We have contact and non-contact rugby sports for 5-15-year-old boys and girls. We start with mixed non-contact rippa rugby for 5-7 year-olds. Mixed tackle starts around the age of 7 through to the age of 12 and we have some girls-only tackle looking to start this year at the U13 level. Also running is the very popular non-contact Rip Rugby with boy and girl grades all the way through till the age of 15.
You can find more details about our sports and grades on our sports page.
At Northcote, we provide information and training for everyone involved - players, coaches, managers and parents/supporters. Our club doesn't run without all these people and we look to make it as easy as possible for you to be involved.

Wednesday 16 June at Northcote
QBE North Harbour will play their pre-season "Battle of the Bridge" game vs Auckland at Northcote Rugby Club on 16 June, 6:30 pm kick-off. Our J1 team will be taking on ECB in the curtain-raiser at 5 pm.
Entry is free, but we will have collection points for non-perishable food donations for distribution to local charity organisations.
There'll be hot food available from the Tour Team tuck shop, the Coffee Guy will be here and the Cotehanga Bar will be open for refreshments.
Our mid-season prizegivings are a great opportunity to recognise players who have stood out over the last couple of months or achieved personal milestones.
Due to the large number of junior players, this event is held in two sessions on Sunday 13 June.
Session 1: J8, J7, J6, J5, Girls U9 & U11 Rippa from 1:30 – 2:30pm
Session 2: J4, J3, J2, J1, Girls U13 & U15 Rippa and Boys Rippa from 3:00 – 4:00pm
At Northcote, you can expect support and inclusion. We are not looking to develop the next All Blacks but we are looking to develop the future supporters of the game. Not just players but coaches, refs, and parents. We hope you have many years of involvement but no matter the length we want that involvement to be spoken about with positivity for the rest of your days.
We could not operate without the people that sponsor the club and the kids. We highly appreciate their support and put all their support directly towards supporting the kids and parents of our teams.
We were lucky to have the All Black, Kieran Read come and be at the Swisse Kick for cash event and take some time to train a few kids.
