About NZRE

NZ Rugby Experience travels the world coaching kids of all ages our great game with a uniquely NZ flavour.

With a collective rugby knowledge of over 100 years, NZRE coaches have coached and played rugby at all levels of the game from juniors to the international stage. They have been coached themselves by some of the best coaches in the world including Graham Henry, Pat Lam and Tana Umaga.

What to expect

A fun-filled week of rugby skills, drills and games. The kids’ awareness and knowledge of fitness, passing, catching, kicking, tackling, rucks, mauls, positionspecific skills, nutrition, scrum safety and much more will be developed through this rugby-specific camp.

Friday is Haka day!

On the Friday, kids perform the Haka for family and friends which they have been learning all week. Come down early to watch! Join in some social touch, bring a picnic and a glass of your favourite and enjoy the afternoon camp breakup together.


NZRE is the Centaurs-endorsed summer rugby camp in Singapore. During the long break between school and rugby terms, we highly encourage kids to continue their rugby education (and get out of the house!).

There are huge benefits for kids to learn at a camp with unfamiliar coaches and players from all clubs and schools: they get a new perspective, they adapt, and they grow as players. Over many years, we’ve seen kids return to their respective clubs from NZRE with a better knowledge of the game, enhanced skills, and new friendships.
