Junior Rugby League
The schoolboys/junior teams cover from Under 6 (U6) through to Under 16 (U16).
The players age on the first of January determines which grade they will play in, for example if the player is 7 years old on the first of January they will play in the Under 8 team.
The Point Chevalier Pirates have teams in nearly every grade, sometimes two teams, so there’s a spot for everyone.
There is a real buzz about the club and the number of junior teams is growing year by year. As well as the fun on the field, players and their families enjoy the friendly environment of the clubrooms where junior prize giving takes priority every Saturday from 5:30. pm.
Junior teams take turns running the club kitchen for team fundraising on Saturday night which provides a great meal option for those at the club. Check out whose cooking this week on the Kitchen roster 2016 TBC .
We are lucky at the club to have a group of energetic coaches & mangers who are there to help the players learn and enjoy the game of rugby league. Behind the scenes the dedicated schoolboys committee ensure the resources are available to teams and every player, from uniforms to registrations, certificates to prize giving and everything in-between.
What does Open or Restricted mean?
A restricted team has maximum weight for players, this makes sure even the little guys can have a great time playing league without the concern of playing against physically much larger kids. To give you an idea the restricted grades for the 2015 season are listed here. An Open team has no weight restriction.
