Community Rugby

The Illawarra District Rugby Union club competition, comprises 13 clubs across an expansive, and geographically diverse zone.

Our long running competition, welcomes all members of the community to join teams across junior, senior and women's competitions.

Saturday afternoons from April to September see the Illawarra's premiere senior code get under way. Clubs fire up their BBQ's, volunteers man the canteens, and supporters flock to clubs along the coast to support their teams in what is always exciting, and impressive competition.

Sunday mornings each winter, bring family and friends out, to rally behind their young ones in friendly, though solid competition. Warmed by a coffee and bacon and egg roll made by club volunteers, supporters gather to cheer their children on, and to watch volunteer coaches across the district help our young rugby players of the future, learn the rules, and importantly learn the art of good sportsmanship.

All of our clubs attract loyal support from the community and local business, as a result of the exciting talent and great sportsmanship on display each and every week throughout the season, and we pass our thanks on to all of those sponsors, whose support helps to keep our clubs running.

Please check our Clubs page, to find your local club. They'd love to hear from you!
