Home Ground

Yattenden Park, John Street, Baulkham Hills is our home ground. The club works hard to upgrade and keep the facilities looking good so please help us to take care of our facilities. Parking on training and game day is best at the Torrs St entrance which runs off Windsor Rd. Details/map are shown on the Club page.

Training

All training is held at Yattenden Park.

Once registrations are finalised all players should be contacted by either the coach/manager of their team informing them of when training starts. 


In the case of our Minis (Under 6s – Under 9s) training is held on a Friday night which allows for a better retention of the skills they have learnt for the game and also means they are not out on a school night.

Our Junior teams train on Thursday evenings across 2 timeslots with U10-U12 from 5.30-7pm, and U13-U17 from 6.30-8pm.

The Game

Rugby is introduced to our kids through modified versions of the game. The concept is to build confident kids by making the game more appropriate for their age.
  • Walla Rugby - Under 6's & 7's (two handed touch/tag rugby  -  NO tackle)
  • Mini Rugby - Under 8's & 9's (introductory contact rugby)
  • Midi Rugby - Under 10's & 11's (evolving contact rugby)
  • Junior Rugby - Under 12's to 17's (modified rugby laws)
  • Senior Rugby - Colts & Four Open Grades (played in accordance with international laws)
