Welcome to the Vikings Junior Rugby Union Club. We are the largest junior rugby union club in the ACT welcoming children from as young as the age of 5 up to the age of 18 to play our great game.
Established in 1980, our club gains its strength from the family and community oriented spirit of our kids, parents, coaches, managers and all our volunteers. Our club encourages participation and inclusiveness to all members, both on and off the field through friendship, endeavour, sacrifice, loyalty and laughter.
The Vikings club caters for players of all abilities and skill levels; whether you’re aiming to be a future Brumby, 1st Grade Viking or simply want to play social rugby and make new friends, you’ll enjoy the complete experience that Vikings provides.
We also have several benefits besides Rugby throughout the season for both kids and parents, including an annual Under 14 touring side, a free pass for all players to Brumbies games, access to our Vikings Premier Rugby Club events and our ever popular trivia night.
Our club currently fields more than 20 teams in the ACTJRU competition, including:
The administrators of the club take the fitness and safety of our players seriously, to ensure this all coaches must comply with all ARU expectations and each team has its own qualified first aid officer.
The Vikings Junior Rugby Club is closely affiliated with our Vikings Premier Grade Rugby Club, affectionately known as “the Seniors”. During the year, our clubs intertwine to support each other. We are fortunate enough to have the Seniors run a strong Junior Rugby Development Program in the off-season, tailored for players ranging from 14 to 18 years of age. This program is designed to facilitate a pathway for players to further develop their fitness and rugby skills with the guidance of senior coaching staff.
Our home ground is Gowrie Playing Fields, Castleton Cres Gowrie, where many of our Saturday games are played and training is held during the week.
