Born in Samoa Jack moved to New Zealand, playing rugby at Otahuhu RFC a suburb of Auckland. He then left NZ for England, to work in and play Rugby; semi-professionally for Bracknell RFC. He has been coaching men’s rugby for 6 years and worked for as a Community Coach for Gloucester Rugby RFC. In 2018 we set up Petelo Rugby All Stars to provide a quality TAG & contact rugby coaching program both in and out of schools for children between the age of 4 to 11 and 12 to 18.
Our classes are made up of fun games and activities children will enjoy, aimed to develop core skills in children of all abilities, helping to build confidence on and off the pitch. Rugby can have a huge impact on a child’s life and their development. It is also very important for them to learn basic core skills from a young age.
Our RFU qualified coaches are experienced in playing rugby and have a passion to promote the sport. We aim to get as many boys and girls taking part in physical activities promoting health, fitness in sport (specialising in rugby).
Petelo Rugby All Star sessions promote:
Respect: Accepting and supporting each other
Teamwork: Embracing the team, empathy and resilience
Comradery: Sportsmanship and integrity
Discipline: Control and strength of character
Health and Fitness: Understanding our bodies, well-being and strength
Enjoyment: Motivation, fun, passion and positivity
These are essential life skills that have a positive impact on children’s lives as they grow and develop, making physical activity enjoyable is even more important in this technical age our children are living in, so encourage your child to come and take part.
My son George attends the petelo all stars after school club. Jack makes the sessions fun and challenging and George thrives in his care and guidance. Would highly recommend

To all my rugby contacts, you couldn't ask for a better rugby coach than Jack Petelo, well worth it to sign up for the rugby camps and after school training

If your little one fancies trying Rugby this is the place to come! Friendly, Fun, and Active (my boys words) Jack is brilliant with the kids and teaches them Team work, Discipline and Skills for life.
