The committee have put together a Team Selection Guideline to help families understand how the beginning of the 2024 season will work:
Register your child online. ("Junior Player Registration Form")(located in the Registration forms tab). You will receive a confirmation email to your nominated email account, Print this off and bring to weigh in. You can also pay online. The cost per child is $90 or if you have more than one sibling you can register as a family for $150.
Attend one of the weigh ins.
Team Selection Criteria
All teams in each grade are to have an even number of players
All teams are to have enough players for at least 2 reserves (eg. 10 in squad for 8 aside, 12 for 10 aside etc)
Each team requires two coaches (both to attend Small Blacks Course)
Teams are to include kids from a mixture of schools to encourage greater social interaction
Year on year team squads will stay together (as much as is practical) while we will accept requests for team changes year to year, the convenors reserve the right to place players where it is fair and equitable for all.
Coaches will be consulted prior to players being moved from their teams (for whatever reason) before the start of the season.
All team squads will be approved by the Junior Club Captain, prior to these being issued to the HBRU before the start of the season
If you have any questions regarding the Junior selection process, you can email
