Harlequin Rugby

The Premier Rugby Union Club in Melbourne, Victoria

Youth Rugby (U12 to U18)

In Australia all 12 to 17 year olds play to modified laws designed to make the game safer and more enjoyable. These Australian U18 Law Variations continue the progression from the Kid’s Pathway (U6 to U11) through to junior representative opportunities at local club, school and regional levels.

In this age range the priority is to provide the players with opportunities to learn by trying it for themselves and the stages through this age range are stepped to allow for progressive development of every individual.

From U12 to U18 rugby games are intended to further develop the individual skills, fitness and team work of all players in accordance with their age and understanding of the game.

This age spectrum covers:

  • Stage 3 – Training to Train
  • Stage 4 – Training to Compete

of the ARUs Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Model focusing on progressive development of all core skills (attack - catch/pass/support, attack – kicking/defence/contact) with increased pressure.
