What happens after the U9s?

You will move across to Easts Junior Beasties with the other Easts Minis players from the Wallaroos and Bondi Breakers.

Training Day: Is Thursday at 5pm  

Game Day:  Is Sunday. The games are played all over Sydney and are generally in the mornings for the U10s. Half the games are home games and half are away games.

Registration: The registration process is the same as Bays – just select "Easts Junior Beasties" as your club. See the Beasties Registration page for more information.

Register for trials:  You will be invited via team app to register your player for a position. If you don’t know the answer to that please know if they are a forward or a back.

Teamapp:  Join Easts Junior Beasties on team app to start getting all your communication. Go in and select the U10 Parents and Players group (choose the year you are joining the U10s).

Grading: The Juniors teams are graded which means teams are based on ability. This indicates your child may not be playing with their friends, please talk to your child and explain this. See the Beasties Grading Policy page.

Trials and the Selection Process:  The selection process involves trials which have an independent selector process. Your child will be asked the preferred positions they would like to play, please ensure you have had that conversation with your child.   It takes several weeks to work through this and there may be player movement as we work towards getting the right combination.  Players must know they may move from one team to another.

Season Length: A normal season is 14 games, before moving into the Championship round of two games ifyour team is successful and makes it to the final.

WWC: All volunteers must have a working with children registration.

Rain: If there is no training the note will go out on Team app – U10s will always be stood down, the older players get priority. If we have a home game and we are on Oval 1 (it is all weather turf) we play whether it is raining or sunny (we only stop for lightning)

No of players on the Field for the U10s:12 on the field, 5 contesting the line outs, Squads are 16 to 17 players per team

Coaches: Every team will have a player coach and a parent coach. You will be asked to register if you would like to coach – this note will go out on team app in January

Start of the season: First two weeks are Gala rounds where you will play generally three games, this ensures everyone is graded correctly in the different rounds.

Parents have a more active role in the Juniors - no game can start unless each team as an Assistant Referee (Linesman) and a Ground Marshall.  Those roles get appointed each week by your Team Manager and is communicated via Teamapp.  

There are training courses for both those roles on Rugby Explorer - Ground Marshall (approx 40 mins), Assistant Referee (approx 2 hours) - when registrations open, register yourself as a volunteer and you will be able to access those courses.  Every volunteer has to be registered on Rugby Explorer to be able to volunteer.
