Hurricanes U14 Rugby Boys Festival
In 2018, College Sport Wellington and Wellington Rugby Football Union run a pilot under 14 festival. Based on the positive experiences and feedback from that event, we will again run the festival in 2019.
Similar to the Hurricanes Under 15 tournament played in Upper Hutt, the festival is played during secondary schools winter tournament.
The aim of the festival is not high performance, but rather to try to engage students under 14 with the game of rugby. It is hoping that students within school that haven’t had a chance to play during the year, get an opportunity to play.
Entries for the 2019 Festival will open in late April 2019.
The festival will run from Monday 2 September to Wednesday 4 September during secondary school winter tournament week.
The festival is sanctioned by School Sport New Zealand (formally NZSSSC). Please check School Sport NZ eligibility regulations if you are unsure of their criteria.
