About the project

Rugby Victoria is experiencing growth in participation as we continue to diversify the game to reflect the communities in which we live. Rugby Victoria recognise the need to further develop the game within our existing communities and reach new markets. 

The Rugby Victoria Coterie is a group of like-minded individuals united by a common cause of growing Rugby in Victoria and helping make Rugby a game to for all. 

The Coterie aims to improve participation and enjoyment of the game through Game Development initiatives. 

The Coterie will support strategic initiatives including: 

  • The inaugural Victorian Government School XVs Rugby Competition 
  • APS 7s Competition
  • Get into Rugby Primary/Junior School Program
  • Education Programs 

The coterie will operate as an advocacy group that connect and support a wide range of causes for the betterment of grassroots Rugby in Victoria.

The Coterie generates funds through tax-deductible donations via the Forever in Union Foundation as part of our fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation.
