Our Mission Statement

We have discovered that once young players see full contact rugby they want to play that way and you cant keep them from we help them get there safely to enjoy playing the game!

Our philosophy at North Shore Rugby is to teach our young players contact rugby at an early age and to develop each player's confidence.....once they can tackle safely and with 'enthusiasm' a player's 'entire game' can explode in the many different areas of skill development from that point onward. Learning to play contact rugby at an early age is extremely important for player safety and this begins through 'muscle memory' so our focus is on the details of correct tackling techniques for thirty minutes at every single practice, Spring and Fall. We build our players from there and this sets us apart!

"In the end, it’s extra effort that separates a winner from second place. It takes desire, determination, discipline, and self-sacrifice. Put all these together, and even if you don’t win, how can you lose?"
- Jesse Owens
