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 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.
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.
