Tawa Junior Rugby Football Club

"Its not just a game, it's about belonging"

Our Kaupapa

The Tawa Rugby Football Club is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of our community (players, families, coaches, referees and administrators) through providing a safe inclusive environment on and off the field.

It is the aim of our club to provide a positive experience for our community by putting our players at the centre of our decision making on the present and future of our club. By doing so, we aspire to provide the best chance for them to develop their rugby and life skills.

The club believes that it is important for our community to show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of all others. Therefore, we encourage everyone to be open and share their thoughts, feedback and or concerns that they have about any aspect of our club.
