Bays Women’s Rugby has had 4 solid seasons back in competition. 2020 sees women’s rugby in the North Harbour region been taken under the wing of Harbour to promote development of players and skills and grow the overall player numbers.
The players are an integral part of the East Coast Bays Rugby Club family and have enjoyed considerable success in both Fifteens and Sevens competitions. Although under harbour players will still represent Bays Rugby and be part of the club.
In 2015 the side won the Auckland Development competition and has won the Harbour Women’s sevens titles over the 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons.
The Bays Women’s team has welcomed players from across the region and has fostered strong links with local High school programs most notably Long Bay and Rangitoto Colleges.
Many Bays players have featured in North Harbour Representative teams and we have also had multiple players recognized and capped into the New Zealand Black Ferns team.
The team welcomes players with motivations to play both socially and competitively. It is extremely proud to be part of growing the sport for women in the North Harbour Region.
It provides a safe encouraging environment with a focus on fun, team first, and continuous improvement both on and off the field. The Women’s team is well supported with quality coaching and organised management.
