"The purpose of the Junior League Festival is to give young rugby league players a unique opportunity to participate against clubs from around New Zealand and Australia, on a foundation of enjoyment and togetherness; all the while creating lifelong memories with friends on tour."

The Kiwi Junior Rugby League Festival is set to welcome clubs from across New Zealand and Australia, offering young junior rugby league players the opportunity to experience touring with their team mates in one of Aotearoa's most beautiful regions, the Eastern Bay of Plenty; to the town of Whakatane.

In this hub of genuine heartlandThe Kiwi Junior Rugby League Festival culture, the wider community will open their arms, their doors and their hearts to provide touring teams with an experience they will cherish for a lifetime in an event that empowers young people in a unified and inspiring way. Regardless of backgrounds or which club they represent, the Kiwi Junior League Festival promises to be an experience of a lifetime for all involved.

This grassroots-sporting showpiece, held over three days, will focus on participation, friendship, and the communion of enjoyment through sport.



The Junior Rugby League Festival design places an equal emphasis on playing sport and enjoying all that is on offer both on and off the field. To that end, Whakatane - the sunshine capital of New Zealand - is the perfect host for such an event. The region offers an abundance of activities for teams and their supporters to experience and enjoy all that it offers.
