Code of Conduct
The governing bodies of Rugby Union have developed Codes of Conduct which covers all involved from the players to spectators and officials. Hills Junior Rugby endorses these codes for all its participants. A copy of the code can be found in the resource library of our website.
Hills Junior Rugby does not condone any type of dangerous, illegal or foul play. The Under 10s – Opens operate under the Sydney Junior Rugby Union judiciary system. Before any player appears before the judiciary a $100 fine must be paid. It is the responsibility of the family/child to pay this fine and until such time as it is paid the player is unable to be heard at the judiciary and as such is ineligible to play.
We pride ourselves on the fact that very few Hills Rugby players are required to appear before the judiciary and Hills Junior Rugby reserves the right to impose further penalties or sanctions to any player above and beyond what has been determined by the Sydney Junior Rugby Union judiciary.
Rugby should be about the kids enjoying themselves and learning new skills along the way. We ask that all parents provide their children with positive encouragement and ensure that the behavior of their children is of an acceptable standard.
Player of the Match
Each week a player from each team will receive the player of the match trophy/award. In the Mini’s, each player from the team will receive the trophy at least once over the season, as the purpose of these awards is to encourage each players own milestones, not just the best player every week. In the Juniors it is left up the Coach and Manager as to how best to encourage their players each week through an award.
For Season 2019 we would like to thank Lollipops Playland Castle Hill for providing Player of the Week Vouchers for our younger players; and Grill'd Church Street Parramatta for providing Player of the Week Vouchers for our older players.
