Rippa Rugby and Quick Rip - Information

Registrations for Term 4 have now CLOSED.

 

The game:

Rippa Rugby is available for Years 1 - 4

Quick Rip is available for Years 5 & 6

The main differences between Rippa & Quick Rip are: there are lineouts when the ball goes out; scrums if the ball is passed forward or there is a knock on; and you can kick the ball in general play and for restarts after tries are scored.

Year 1 & 2 Rippa teams have 5 players on the field at all times, on a reduced field size (half a regular field), with up to 2 subs.

Year 3-6 Rippa & Quick Rip teams have 7 players on the field with up to 3 subs that can rotate in at any time. With mixed teams, there must be at least one girl on the field at all times.

Coaches hold the team practises and are present to coach during games.

Managers are responsible for team logistics and organisation e.g. correspondence of practise and game times to all members of the team; key point of contact for PPS Sports & Events Co-ordinator.

These roles can be shared across parents if required. Without parents volunteering for these roles; we are unable to submit teams.
