Welcome to HRK
Horten Rugby Klubb was founded in 1994 and it is the 3rd oldest rugby club in Norway. Our founders where passionate and dedicated to rugby. Their only goal was to share with everyone that rugby is much more than just a sport, it is also a way of being, based upon the solid values of Respect, Discipline, Solidarity, Integrity, and Enjoyment. Throughout the last 25 years has the club been proud to carry these values from generation to generation and share it, with not just our local community but with everyone that it comes in touch with. Today, I am proud to be one of the many members that work towards growing and developing the club!
Everyone gets a chance to join and try rugby no matter what age, gender, religion or language. Our aim is to contribute through enjoying sport, to a healthy, inclusive and positive community that anyone can be a part of.
I wish you a warm welcome to Horten Rugby Klubb and thank you for wanting to join in.
Memberships in Horten Rugbyklubb are handled the same way as most other sports in Norway. Applications must be lodged through minidrett.no which is Norges Idrettsforbund registration system. Once your membership application is received by us, we process it and you will receive a membership invoice back (also in minidrett). You then can pay the invoice just like any other electronic payment.
Junior members should be registered under a parent or gaurdian (as family) and invoice is handled the same way - via the parent or gaurdian.
