Welcome to Northlakes Junior Rugby Club
What a fantastic season 2020 ended up being for us pirates. Covid was in full force and we were thinking we would not have a season, however a lot of hard work from CCJRU combined with our Pirates committee and we managed to get close to a full season.
History was made last year at our club, we had the highest number of registered players in a single year with 130 players beating 2019 with 111 players, and we plan on topping that again in 2021.
Without a doubt though, the highlight of the season was winning our first premiership in 12 years! Congratulations to our mighty U11’s, what a game that Grand Final was. With Covid restrictions, there was no telling there were limited supporters in the Grand Stand because the crowd was loud and proud! There was cheering, tears and lots of celebrations! If you missed it, grab a drink, kick back and watch it here.
For 2021, we have had a tremendous amount of support already from our community and would love to give a huge shout out to all of our sponsors that have come on board for 2021:
Thank you to Ainsworth Accounting, BTK Transport, Budgewoi Soccer Club, Central Coast Financial Planning Group, Colonial Plumbing and Drainage, JAWO designs, Loop, Rycal Hunt Builders, and Wiseberry. Without the support of these wonderful sponsors, we would be unable to provide free rugby for all our U5-U7s and subsidised registration for our older age groups. It also allows us to provide free shorts and socks to all players, purchase our team jerseys, training and game day equipment as well as provide fun events throughout the year to create team bonding and the amazing family culture that The Pirates are famous for. Ensure you return the favour and support our sponsors when the opportunity arises – visit them, refer to them and like & share their social media pages.
Also, a huge shout out to our wonderful committee and volunteers that give their time freely to ensure all kids have the opportunity to play rugby in a safe and fun environment. These superstars are the ones setting up the home ground on early winter mornings, they are coaching your kids and providing them with life long skills, refereeing games, managing teams, they are running the canteen & BBQ, accounting, organising registrations, merchandise & equipment, organising sponsors, fundraising, fun days, mouthguard fittings, presentation day – the list goes on & on. They are a friendly bunch and all want what is in the best interest of the kids and are always looking for volunteers, so don’t be shy and come say hi and help out!
Lastly, a big shout out to the kids, families & supporters for helping make this club the best on the coast! We can’t wait to get amongst it again in 2021!
