The Warringah Rugby Club is seeking to fill key coaching (including 1st grade assistant coaching roles) and managing roles within Grade and Women teams for the 2018 rugby season.

We are looking for experienced, accredited coaches who are interested in coaching in the Sydney Premiership Competition as well as being responsible for a wide range of rugby related activities.

The Warringah Rugby Club is based on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and has a rich culture and strong link with its local community. We are a thriving club, focussed on growing the game and continuing the success we’ve experienced in 2017.

We are hoping to fill these positions now, so please register your interest at no later than the 22nd September 2017.

Whilst the 2017 season may be over, our community engagement and support is an all-year round focus that we passionately keep chipping away at. This year so far we’ve raised more money for charity not to mention have spent countless hours sowing into the likes of sporting programs, school sports initiatives, community needs and breaking new ground in girls rugby.

Fortunately for us, it’s these endeavours alongside a thriving and successful cohort of players who’ve performed well this year, that have somewhat captured the hearts and the adoration of young and old alike within the community. They’re not looking up to the Super Rugby stars so much, but rather their local heroes who’ve shown them what hard work, discipline and team spirit can achieve.

This year we’ve been busy. Here’s just a snapshot of what our players and members have been up to:

–            Running rugby programs at both Wakehurst Primary School and Pittwater House on a week-to-week basis, which has proved to be a valuable and worthwhile cause. As we hit more schools in term 3 we are excited to be growing rugby

–            The Warringah Rugby Club has taken on dual funding of a Northern Beaches based development officer. Emily Robinson will lead this as we ensure all juniors get the opportunity to learn and grow at playing rugby. Emily has just returned from the Womens Rugby World Cup, but she won’t be wasting anytime as she will head straight into our local schools and lead Warringah initiative in growing rugby across the beaches.

–           The Warringah Rugby Charity Lunch hosted by The Newport was a resounding success. Just under 160 sponsors and community folk attended. The lovely Erin Molan once again MC’d the lunch which was a treat and the event itself is fast becoming quite the annual event everyone looks forward to. We were blessed with beautiful weather once again and a captive, generous audience who faithfully dug deep once again to give to causes much in need. This years’ beneficiaries included Bear Cottage, Man Up , Mums for Mums Newport and Gotcha for Life.

–           We started the “Dalton Green Cup”; a wonderful initiative for young girls wanting to play Rugby. It attracted a bunch of new recruits whose new found passion and love for Rugby will see them continue in the game!

–           We’ve had a lot of our grade stars aligning with village clubs to help out at training, gala days, presentations and events. What’s been a tremendous testament to our commitment in this area is the amount of players who’ve pursued involvement in these village clubs without being asked or expected to. This tells me ‘community’ is well and alive within our Club.

Getting amongst the action and giving back is fundamental to our success and ongoing plan to improve the Club. Yes, we’ve had a lot of success on the field this year, but we want to be a Club that is always growing, always getting better and never getting stagnant.  Striving to improve and go beyond expectations is one of the keys to ensure we’re not settling. Being focused on how we can give back is one of the many things we’re committed to doing.
