The Bay of Plenty Rugby Union Holiday Programme is set to return for the upcoming school holidays in Tauranga, Whakatane, Opotiki and Rotorua.

The Bay of Plenty Rugby Union Holiday Programme provides the opportunity for rugby mad youngsters to get the chance to experience expert coaching, team challenges and trainer of the day prizes across the Bay of Plenty.

The programme is aimed at both boys and girls between six and twelve years of age. While the intention of the programme is to teach the youngsters fundamental rugby skills, the emphasis is on fun and enjoyment - it is about more than just teaching basic rugby skills.

The Western Bay of Plenty holiday programme proudly sponsored by Sara Browne of EVES Realty will take place at Blake Park, Mount Maunganui during the first week of the school holidays. On Wednesday 18 April the programme will kick off, with two days of action for both boys and girls aged six to twelve years of age. The Western Bay of Plenty programme will conclude with a Master Class on Friday 20 April for ages eight to twelve years.

On Monday 23 April, the Central Bay of Plenty holiday programme will kick off for the first time in Rotorua. Whakarewarewa Rugby Club will host the holiday programme which is proudly sponsored by Patchells.

On Tuesday 24 April, the Eastern Bay of Plenty holiday programme will kick off in Opotiki. With the remaining two days of the holiday programme hosted at Whakatane’s Rugby Park on Thursday 26 and Friday 27 April.

The boys and girls attending their respective holiday programmes will be treated to expert coaching from the Bay of Plenty representative players’ as well as days full of fun and enjoyment.

Central Bay of Plenty Rugby Junior Development Officer, Kelly Haimona commented, “It is great we can offer our Holiday Programme for the first time in Rotorua. The Rotorua community have got in behind it and we are sure that the kids will make the most of the opportunity to be a part of an action packed and fun programme come Monday 23 April.”

Western Bay of Plenty Junior Rugby Officer, Kendra Reynolds commented, “We are really excited about, our Bay of Plenty Rugby Holiday Programme returning again to Blake Park. It is great to have the support from local sponsors Sara Browne – EVES Realty and also the integration of Crossfit Alliance, Primal Kids and Moana FM to add an extra dimension to the programme.”

In an attempt to attract as many aspiring rugby players in our region as possible, the price has been kept to a modest $30 per day in the Western Bay of Plenty, $20 per day in the Eastern Bay of Plenty and $35 for the Master Class.
