7’s Rugby is a popular rugby union variation offered to the boys at Laerskool Van Dyk Primary. 7’s Rugby was included in the School Programme in 2019 and this sport has seen a marked increase in participation and skills level. Many of our players progress to regional and provincial trials. In 2019 the U12 team won the Laerskool Morewag tournament and the U13 team finished 2nd.
7’s Rugby is offered to three age groups of players: U11, U12 and U13. There is currently no league for 7’s rugby and players participate in tournaments. Specialised skills and high fitness levels are needed for this fast paced sport.
Times, Venues, Practices and Matches
Practices are held on school grounds. Days and times of these practices vary according to age group – please consult the Term programme for details. Trails usually takes place at the end of Term 2 and the tournaments are hosted during Term 3 & 4..
Clothing and Equipment
It is important that the learners bring suitable clothes to practice. Van Dyk Primary School provides the match jerseys/shirts for the players. Players are required to purchase their own black rugby shorts and additional safety gear as required
