Our son has hugely benefited from his sessions with the Halfbacks. Nicole is a fantastic coach, and Zachary is so excited to get up and get ready for rugby every Sunday. It has helped his confidence, team work and listening skills. The activities are spot on for the age group!

About Half Backs

We believe that the best way to play sport and be physically active is with a smile on our faces having fun. The only way children are going to continue playing, create healthy habits for life and develop their skills is if they enjoy the games.

Working in teams and as an individual allows your child to develop their personal skills. We create an environment that enables both fun and learning through a structured rugby based play program designed by qualified coaches and teachers.

We respect everyone involved in the Half Backs session, children, parents and carers and the other coaches. We nurture a safe and welcoming environment for all.

The fundamental movements taught at Half Backs will help develop your child both physically and mentally.
