U14 Rugby Festival
Parktown Boys hosts an annual U14 Rugby Festival.
This festival is in its 30th year of existence and is the only festival of its kind in the country.
The aim of the festival is to expose junior Rugby players from numerous schools to festival style Rugby with the purpose of helping most of the boys either from Parktown or visiting schools who have come from predominantly Football background to the wonderful, expansive and running game of Rugby. This is achieved by pitting schools against each other in 5 shortened matches over a 2 day period in March each year. In between matches the coaches have the opportunity of trying different combinations and righting the wrongs of the previous matches. Inexperienced Rugby players learn from experienced ones and vice versa. Teams compete for the love of the game with the ultimate winner being Rugby.
This year's festival will take place on 20 and 21 March. The sides attending include: Hilton College, Jeppe High School for Boys. St. Stithian's College, King Edward VII School, Pretoria Boys' High, St. David's Marist Inanda, St. John's College, St. Benedict's College, St. Alban's College, Helpmekaar, Uplands College, Kearsney College, Jabulani Rugby Club, President Hoërskool.
This year, we will also have an U13 section, with 2 Lions Presidential sides and 4 primary school sides playing which are amongst others Weltevreden Park Primary School, Orchards Primary School, Monument Primary School, Florida Laerskool.
