    At Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby, we’re all about having fun, making new friends and enjoying the great game of Rugby Union. Why play rugby? Our overarching philosophy is that rugby is about building character. Of course the kids come because: - it’s easy to learn and great fun to play - they enjoy making new friends - rugby is a game for all shapes and sizes - they get plenty of game time, because we have small teams and everyone gets a go But parents love our club too because we ... Read more all agree that sport is a trojan horse that gets some great life lessons into kids without the lecture. Our boys and girls learn that in rugby, like in life: - everyone has more fun if we all play fairly - respect the referee and abide by his/her judgements - everyone, regardless of their size, shape or background, is vital to the success of the team - teams can accomplish so much more than individuals - play for the success of your teammates as much as yourself - sometimes you win, sometimes ...

    Free ball for all new players!

    All new players who register for the 2018 season will receive a brand new junior size rugby ball. Yours to keep and practice with between games and training days!

    The leadership of the KWJRC is an amazingly committed bunch of men and women. It is a joy to see the kids develop in an environment fostering all the core values of Rugby Union. It is also a treat to see these leaders focus on the inclusion of girls and women. Love it.

    My son has played at Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby Club and the support of coaches and his team mates is absolutely fantastic. I came from an AFL background, but I am certainly a convert now having been a part of this great club.

    Very inclusive club

    01-05-2018 by Simon Davidson

    Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby Club has been a very welcoming and inclusive club for our 4yr old son in his first year of rugby union. Communication and coaching has been great and even though our 4yr old is the youngest in the team by a few years, coaches have found ways to include him in games so that he enjoys and looks forward to each game..

    Answer from Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby Club on 08-05-2018:
    Thanks Simon, we love the tenacity of your boy, he sets the example for all of our junior players!

    Awesome fun and team spirit

    01-05-2018 by Kristina Page

    Kiwi Hawthorn is an amazing club, encouraging the girls and boys to have fun. The development of skills is just another benefit that they learn, without even knowing it. The coaches are extremely committed and approachable. Here lies the evidence of strong rugby team values, within a small rugby community.

    Answer from Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby Club on 08-05-2018:
    Thanks Kris, we really appreciate your support and the contribution made by your family.

    So glad we found this club......

    01-05-2018 by CT

    Found this little gem of a club two years ago, when the Junior teams were being re-established. I'm so glad we did, as we have found it to be a wonderfully welcoming, friendly and inclusive club. Both our kids (1 boy, 1 girl) are playing now, and both myself and partner are volunteering. Both contact and non-contact forms of rugby are offered, so kids of all ages and abilities can play. Can highly recommend joining the Kiwi Hawthorn Juniors.

    Answer from Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby Club on 08-05-2018:
    Thanks CT, you and your family have been instrumental in helping us grow, love your work!

    Everyone is welcome

    01-05-2018 by Phil Brooker

    Rugby in Victoria is a very inclusive sport which welcomes people of all shapes, sizes, sexes and abilities. The Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby Club is the greatest example of that you could hope to find. The club caters for girls and boys, having pioneered the girls competition and also provides contact and non-contact versions for boys and girls - all in an atmosphere of fun with a real community atmosphere. If you are looking for a junior sport for your kids, Kiwi Hawthorn Rugby is about as good as it gets.

    Thanks Phil, we'll do our very best to earn that praise!

    Upwey Tae Kwon Do

    14-06-2017 by Saul

    I train at Upwey Rhee TKD side by side with my 9 yo son. There's not a lot of sports where you can do this which is one of the things we both love about it - however it doesn't stop there. The people we train with are great, the instructors are great all combined with some excellent messaging about self control and respect. We're only just getting established in our training routine, however I already notice some great physical and mental benefits. One of the aims of the training is to get your brain and body working in sync with each other - it amazes me how much of a challenge this actually is - but I think I'm getting there. In conclusion, I can't recommend it highly enough and hopefully my son and I will both be training there for many years to come.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 16-06-2017:
    It is always pleasing to know that students are "getting it" and seeing the benefits, both for them as individuals but also as a family.

    Traditional AND practical

    14-06-2017 by Ying

    Amazing instructor and students at Upwey Taekwondo who make you feel right at home and are very welcoming and accommodating whether you are new to the arts or a returning student after a long break.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 16-06-2017:
    A welcoming, family friendly atmosphere is one of our main goals. With a good environment students will learn more and more quickly. Thanks for the review.

    Great activity for kids and adults

    09-02-2016 by Jess Brown

    Tae kwon Do helps people to develop flexibility, strength and coordination in a fun, low-pressure way. Upwey Tae Kwon Do teachers are knowledgeable and patient. Well-worth the experience for kids and adults alike.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Besides the physical benefits of exercise, by training together often as a family, both children and adults learn that respect is a two-way street. This reinforces respect all round and boosts self confidence as the usual power hierarchy between adults and children is not relevant in our martial art.

    Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defense

    08-02-2016 by Faith Nicholls

    This has been the best activity my son has ever been involved with. Excellent mentoring and teaching . My son developed great confidence in himself as well as learning new skills.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Self confidence in children, especially teenagers, will help them to resist negative peer pressure and thus make them safer. Regular training in a safe non-competitive environment will boost their confidence as they learn. This is compared to a competitive environment which disadvantages those who cannot keep up with others, often resulting in a lowering of self confidence.

    How to help your kid find their balance in life

    Pretty soon, our ‘life triangle’ is all out of shape - just like our bodies. We all too often become aware of this imbalance when it appears to be too late, and start to bounce around looking to regain some balance. Joining the gym has become a fad and is worth a try until we realise that we are paying more and going less. Self motivation is probably to be found within the shortened ‘mental’ side of our triangle. Short courses may help to improve our mental and/or spiritu...

    Self defence for kids - recognising danger

    Teaching our children (and ourselves) to recognise what is “normal” in our homes, schools, and local community can make it a lot easier to spot incongruities that may signal a potential danger or dangerous situation.   Dangerous situations that your child or teenager could be more aware of include: - A darkened area that is normally lit.  - Door locks not in their expected state. Perhaps the storeroom door is normally locked but you notice it is unlocked. - S...

    How to raise brave kids - that understand FEAR

    Adrenalin (epinephrine) is a natural body chemical that causes our muscles to perform quicker resulting in more strength and a faster response. Associated with this adrenal dump is a release of dopamine to act as a natural pain killer. All this results in reactions like shaky knees or butterflies in the stomach and a strong feeling that you want to be somewhere else. All of which is simply interpreted as fear. This is quite natural and can result whenever placed under stress, from being required...

    Choose Jam Studio!

    26-03-2017 by Mia

    I started lessons with Jam Studio a few years ago. Being an adult student with little experience, I was extremely nervous to begin, but the teachers at the studio have been nothing but friendly, welcoming, encouraging and professional. It is clear to see when visiting the studio that the students are happy and thriving in their musical ventures. I have developed more confidence that I thought possible and have been so impressed by the vast knowledge of all the teachers in the studio.

    Fabulous Fairy Feet

    20-02-2017 by Leila

    My daughter absolutely loves Miss Laura and going to her Fairy Feet dance class. Her favourite activity, it has nurtured a love of dance and performance that I hope will continue. Miss Laura provides a fantastic fun and active environment for little ones to engage with music and movement and make friends. Well done Miss Laura!

    Fairy Feet

    16-02-2017 by Lyndal

    We Love Fairy Feet Dance Club! Miss Laura is a wonderful teacher who is always so enthusiastic and caring with the kids. The classes are fun, colourful, interactive, appeal to the childrens imagination and they dont even realize how much they are learning. I definitely recomend Fairy Feet Dance Club and have done so to many frinds with young children. Dancing with Miss Laura is the highlight of my 5 and 2yr olds week

    Answer from Fairy Feet Dance Club - Ivanhoe East on 20-02-2017:
    Thanks so much for the lovely review Lyndal....and of course for all of the recommendations! :)

    Fairy feet - a perfect balance!

    08-02-2016 by Maxine

    Miss Laura gets the balance right, fun, inclusion and the joy of dance, without any pressure, costume stress or makeup. My pre-schooler said it was her favorite part of the whole year. I loved watching her in the class having the time of her life with her little fairy friends. We drive 40mins in our busy week for her classes, what a treat. Highly recommend.

    THE best dancing class for little people

    08-02-2016 by Kelly

    Miss Laura runs a fantastic and fun class. My 2yo LOVES it, and I've really enjoyed watching her learn and her confidence grow. It's also really impressive how much Miss Laura fits into the class - no messing about. Make sure you check it out.

    20-01-2016 by Angela

    Miss Laura is AMAZING! Such a kind, caring, passionate and patient teacher. I'm so happy we found Fairy Feet! My daughter absolutely adores her and loves coming to class each week ( and has talked about her non stop over the holidays! Can't wait to get back to class!) The end of year concert was spectacular and my husband and I were very happy that our daughter was not required to wear make-up like we have seen at other children's concerts. We could not be happier to recommend Fairy Feet classes and Miss Laura.

    Fairy Feet Dance Club is Fantastic!

    07-06-2014 by Katrina

    Charlotte just ADORES Miss Laura!!! Classes are always lots of fun and she gets so excited dressing up for her lesson every week. I'm so glad I found Fairy Feet Dance Club on this website :)
