Get into Rugby

Get Into Rugby Schools is the new schools recruitment program being rolled out across Australia (previously known as Game On). The Australian Sports Commission has created Sporting Schools, a $100 million Australian Government Initiative to get children committed to a lifelong love of sport.

All Primary Schools can now apply for a grant between $1300 and $3100 per term, to start delivering their Sporting Schools activity using Rugby Union’s Get Into Rugby Program.

Rugby Union South Australia runs the Get Into Rugby  program in Schools across South Australia, with the main aim of delivering a quality program that the students will enjoy, learn about the game and the values and traditions of Rugby Union. Our Rugby specific trained coaches are best equipped to deliver our 5 week program that encompasses all the skills and drills of our non-contact version of the game Touch 7s (CLICK HERE for more info on Touch 7s)

South Australia sends a Under 18 Schoolgirls & Schoolboys team to the championships each year. The state has had a number of school players go on to play in NRC for various states. In 2014 and 2015 Pembroke’s Mackenzie Sadler was selected for the Australian Girls Youth Commonwealth Games team to compete at Nanjing (2014) and Samoa (2015), with Australia successfully defending their Gold Medal placing in 2014, Mackenzie now has two Gold Medals to her name.

The high school sevens program gives students the opportunity to represent their state in a sport that is now included in the Olympics and we have a National female competition, based out of The University of Adelaide.
