About Junior Rugby at SURSC


Welcome to Silverdale United Rugby and Sports Club.

Our Vision is to be New Zealand’s leading community-based sports club promoting a progressive, enthusiastic and friendly environment to encourage participation from all Club members and the community.

Our mission is to promote rugby, while remembering the history of the Club, by;

  • Providing excellent facilities to encourage spectating and socialising in a hospitable, safe and friendly environment.
  • Encouraging players and team officials in our community, to develop to their highest potential in a culture promoting commitment, fairness, enjoyment, integrity, respect and success.
  • Providing excellence in governance and administration.

Junior Rugby at SUR&SC

At Junior level our aim is to support our membership to maximise their enjoyment of our club activities, ensuring that the players are at the centre of the experience and the club is efficiently run and is financially sustainable.  To foster an environment where players and supporters feel that they belong.

This will ensure players are retained and will return to the club in the future.

We are committed to fostering a Climate of Development and support the Good Sports initiative.  Good Sports aims to create positive sporting experiences for Kiwi kids by supporting and educating the key adult influencers in children’s sport: caregivers, coaches, teachers and sport leaders.

We support and endorse New Zealand Rugby’s Applaud initiative.  A positive environment for everyone to enjoy rugby is at the heart of APPLAUD; a New Zealand Rugby initiative to encourage supporters to be good sports at schools and clubs and also to stamp out anti-social side-line behaviour.

Our Junior Committee

We have a Junior Committee who is passionate about our children’s enjoyment of the game.  The Committee’s main functions are:

  • Assist with the development of coaching talent in the club and provide resources to enable coaches to develop the kids to the best of their ability
  • Ensure coaches and managers are well informed about club activities
  • Fundraise for the club
  • Organise Events
  • Arrange teams
  • Proactively deal with issues raised by the membership to the best of our ability – protect and enhance the club’s reputation
  • Support NHRU initiatives on the Hibiscus Coast & co-ordinate our activities with NHRU
  • Facilitate teams’ attendance at tournaments and tours

The following people are currently involved in our Junior Committee.  They are all active participants in junior rugby and are themselves involved in club administration, management, coaching, refereeing and managing teams.  They are here to support the development of rugby at junior level on the Hibiscus coast and to support the club’s vision.
