U12 Development Carnival

An unforeseen consequence from Covid lockdowns has meant that the current 2021 U11 age group has now gone thru 2 seasons where they have missed out on the chance to attend the Positive Rugby Foundation NSWJRU State Gala. For those unaware this is a Development Rep Carnival where we offer the chance for Districts to send TWO teams (squads of 18 each) in U10 & U11 ages for a chance to play some Developmental Reps at a gala with no finals – more a festival of rugby.


As such we are proposing an SJRU U12 District Development Gala for 2022 to fill this gap – potentially a one-off gala but if it is a success then we can reconsider. The format and conditions we are thinking are;

Dates: 9th & 10th July

Venue -  Nepean Rugby Park (to be confirmed)

Yes, it is in the middle of the school holidays – people can choose whether to participate.

No finals – gala style only

Players that played at the State Champs (for their own district) are ineligible to be included. This program is not for State Champs players to get a second run – for inexperienced players to get a chance (will give a whole new cohort a positive rugby experience)

Players who missed their home District but then went and helped another District (like Wests or Uni) are fine to be included. Increased brand alignment to home District but still allows the support for other smaller Districts at State Champs level

We may need to offer 'exemptions' for smaller districts like Uni and Wests if they want to be involved as may not have numbers

Means that the 'top' players in age group should be out of the equation meaning those next tier players will get a chance, therefore building 'depth' for every District as we head into the teen years – benefits player retention
