"Hills Rugby...developing kids, teams and community"

The Junior club is one of the biggest in North West Sydney. 

Mini's (u6-u9) play 2 handed tag on Saturday mornings among Parramatta, Eastwood and Penrith District Clubs. 

Juniors (u10-u16) play in the Sydney wide SJRU graded competition on Sundays. The club fields teams in most but not all age groups. 

Hills Seniors (Sub-District) normally fields five grades including Colts. Find the seniors website at www.hillsrugbyclub.com

2019 Foxtel Touch7's
Launching on Thursday 31 January 2019, the Hills Junior Rugby Union Club is excited to be running a 5 week Foxtel Touch7s Program within the District to get kids and their families ready for Season 2019, as well as just getting the kids together to have some fun in the sun (albeit hopefully Twilight) with their mates. Like last year, we're gonna mix it up again this year on a Thursday evening at Yattenden Park in John St, Baulkham Hills. Teams can have 7 players on the field, and up to 2 reserves on the Bench. Teams need to be ready to commence games from 6pm.

Each team will play a minimum of 3 games every Thursday night, with each game consisting of 2 x 7min halves, with a 2min halftime break. That's a total of at least 42 playing minutes for each Team, every Thursday night!!! Yes, it's absolutely intense, but it's loads of fun and the absolute best way you can spend a Thursday evening in Summer!

Referees for each game will be appointed by the Club, so you just need to turn up, play and have fun. This year the Club is actively encouraging you to create and enter your own team and to mix it up - boys and girls of all ages can play in the same team. Get a team together with some of your school and/or sporting club mates, but invite some other friends or family to join that team too! And for the first time, we’re welcoming Family teams – Mums, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, Brothers and Sisters – rope them all in for some fun. And if you don’t have 7 in the family, mix it up and join in with another family for more fun! The BBQ and Canteen will also be churning out hot food and cold drinks, and the music will be pumping!

To assist with planning and logistics of the Program, the Club is seeking Expressions of Interest from Teams who may want to participate This year, the Program is open to all Age Groups - so any boys or girls - however the final makeup may be totally dependent on player numbers registering. Families, Boys, Girls and Mixed teams are all possible. It is anticipated that online registration and payment will open in early December 2019 using Rugby Australia's Registration and Competition Management system, which will provide discounts for those who continue onto the Club's Regular season commencing in April 2019.

The BEST part is that this awesome 5 week program is that we anticipate that it will still only cost $50 per player (actual cost to be advised once all third party fees/charges are confirmed with the Club). That's right, only $10 per night. Try and find better value than that! ONLY NEW PLAYERS in 2019 will receive a Reversible Playing Singlet (so your whole team can be in the same singlet), but all players will have insurance coverage and get access to an online Team Photo.

Once you have formed your Team, please have your Team Manager complete the Expression of Interest Form below with all the details. If you do not have a Team, and would like us to place you in one, then please email Touch7s@hillsrugby.com.au with your details and we will be in contact.

Please only submit 1 Expression of Interest Form for EACH Team.

2019 Coaching Nominations 

Nominations for all Minis (U6-U9) and Juniors (U10-U17) Coaching positions are now being sought from those people who are interested in taking on one of these roles for the 2019 Season.  To be a Coach you will need to have completed (or be on your way to completing) some certification requirements relevant to the Age Group you’re seeking to Coach.  The Club can assist you to gain those certifications if necessary.

Before commencement of the 2019 Season, ALL Club Coaches must hold current certification and provide a copy to the Club with the nomination:

  • NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian (OCG) ‘Working with Children Check’ (WWC), by successfully completing the online application via the OCG Website, this is a mandatory requirement for 2019 for Hills Junior Rugby, due to recent changes in RA Child Safety Guidelines; and

  • U8-U12 Coaches must hold at minimum a current ‘Coaching Kids Rugby U8-U12’ certificate, by completing the online and face-to-face Program on offer via the RA Learning Centre Portal

  • U13+ Coaches must hold at minimum a current ‘Foundation Course – Rugby’ certificate by completing the online and face-to-face Program on offer via the RA Learning Centre Portal. 

If you currently hold the above, and/or are willing to have these in place prior to the commencement of season 2019 and if you’re interested in a coaching role, then it is preferable that you nominate yourself.  If you think other people may be good candidates, or may have some interest in coaching, then have a chat with them and get them to consider it and nominate themselves.

The nominations for U6 Coaching positions will remain open into early 2019 to provide an opportunity for any new parents to step up and get involved.  The nominations for ALL other Coaching positions (U7-U17) will close at 5pm on Wednesday 5th December 2018.  The Club’s Committee will then review all nominations received and work with those candidates to make appointments for the 2019 Season in a timely manner before we then ramp up the player recruitment and retention activities in earnest.

Nominations are to be sent via email to the relevant email address for age groups as per below;

Juniors (U10 - U17) - vp.juniors@hillsrugby.com.au

Minis (U7 – U9) - vp.minis@hillsrugby.com.au
