Our Mission

Our Mission is to give young rugby players around the Waikaka district the chance to play age group or senior rugby. Waikaka RFC is a great place to not only play rugby but to build life long friendships and offer opportunities to young rugby players not only in Gore but all over the world.

Our vision is to keep the true spirit of grass-roots rugby alive and well in the Waikaka Community, and continue to provide the opportunity for many future generations to come.
