Roll on Rugby Season

Autumn begins {officially} tomorrow, though some would argue it actually began in December!   All hope of summer is lost so we might as well look forward to the winter sports season hooray!

Kumeu Rugby Club held its first junior registration evening tonight and the turn-out was good, not surprising really.  We all figured Rugby registrations would be up this year following the awesomeness that was the World Cup.

If you are considering enrolling your kids in either Soccer or Rugby, now is the time to act.  Your local clubs will be holding their registrations now, they usually have at least two or three.  To give you an idea of fees, our rugby dues this year are $90.  Definitely an increase from last year, however this includes shorts, socks and a mouth guard (new members also get a bag), though obviously this will vary from club to club.

Take your cheque book to a rego event as often the clubs eftpos facility will be behind the bar and not open.  Also, if you plan to order club clothing eg training jackets etc be prepared to do this at registration as the club will put in one order once all money is received.

It was lovely to see Milo supporting grass-roots sports, plus it provided a welcome distraction {and some afternoon tea!} for the kids whilst the parents were queing and writing cheques!

What winter sports are your kids {or you} getting into this winter?  I’m thinking I might get into some swimming training with my future sister-in-law….ahhhh dreams are free and good intentions are worth everything right?

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. I will be getting Master 3 into swimming lessons with the hope of joining him up with the Orewa Surf Club next summer. As we are new to the area from HB I am also interested to find out if Ripper Rugby is on offer on the Hibiscus Coast! We left many friends (both his and my husband and I) so hopefully we can make some connections with his sporting interests.

    1. Awesome! Jo Rua is in your new neighbourhood and I know they are involved in tag league (similar to ripper rugby). E has done Surf Lifesaving at Muriwai and really enjoyed it. We need to catch up x
