At Waimea Junior Rugby, we have approximately 310 children across various ages from 5 years up to 15 years.

We are one of the biggest Junior Rugby Clubs in the Nelson/Tasman region.

With our quality coaching, these youngsters move up the grades and with good training and discipline can go on to represent the Waimea Old Boys Club in the provincial teams.
