"Lindfield Junior Rugby, rugby for everyone."
Vision: Lindfield Junior Rugby Club's focus is participation with the goal that every player enjoys their rugby, in a safe environment, at a level appropriate to their skills and physical capabilities. We aim to field teams to cater for all participants, from Representative players to those that want to have a run in the park with their mates. Our club will provide training and development opportunities to improve and develop the skills of all participants.
Playing with LJRC. We welcome players of all abilities and gender. This however is subject to adherence with the SJRU Competition rules. We reserve the right to limit numbers within age groups where we would not be able to field a full team.
Selection. In Minis from Under 6s to Unders 9’s, players and teams are not graded. In under 10’s to Opens players are graded on their ability to demonstrate the basic skills of the game, skills necessary for the particular position selected, their ability to participate in a team environment and potential for future development.
Team Grading: In under 10’s to Opens, the club will assess each team on its merits and request appropriate grading in the Sydney Junior Rugby Union (SJRU) competition. The objective is a grade where players enjoy their rugby and are competitive. We don't focus on a team in every A grade nor measure success by the number of grand final wins. We believe players should play at a standard where they are appropriately challenged and provided with an opportunity to demonstrate and develop their skills.
Playing time: LJRC firmly encourages equal game time for all players in a squad. The club recognizes at certain times, Coaches and Managers may wish to field the strongest side possible. Where this is done, team management will consult with the players and parents with game time expectations understood and agreed to before game day.
The Lindfield tradition: "Building friendships, skills and values for life."
