Safety Information

Ensuring kids are active in a fun, safe and inclusive environment.

Everything you need to know about your family's Rugby League experience. 


Keeping it safe

Safety of play is our number 1 priority both on the Rugby League field and at our junior programs. We've put measures in place to keep our future stars comfortable and focussed on the game and activites. All Coaches, Referees and Trainers must hold current accreditation to ensure we have the right people fulfilling these roles. We also have a Code of Conduct and SafePlay code to remind participants of our expectations and standards on the field.


Having fun!

Now that they are safe... let's focus on the fun! Rugby League is about having a great time with your teammates and to maximise the smiles we've implemented some modifications for our younger age groups. Second chance rules, smaller fields and team numbers along with rules to ensure every player gets a fair turn with the ball will keep your little one excited for game day each week.


Make friends & stay healthy

Playing team sport such as Rugby League is a fun way for kids to build upon their social skills such as teamwork, communication, problem solving and relationship building. This is achieved while completing regular exercise, contributing to a range of mental and physical health benefits.

Child Safety

Child Safety

The NRL are committed to promoting a safe environment for all Children and and Young People and to assisting staff, officials, players, coaches, members and volunteers to recognise child protection issues and safeguarding procedures.

Member Protection Information Officers (MPIO)

Each state has a MPIO who is available to provide information and guidance on complaints procedures - they are the 'go to' person if you want to discuss problems at your club/association.

Skill development

Rugby League contributes to the overall development of a child's cognitive and physical skill development. We've introduced policies such as the Dummy Half & First Receiver vest rotation to ensure each little star has their chance to shine in key positions. We're a leader in Coach compliance with all Coaches required to be accredited so that they are best equipped to create the most nurturing environment for all participants.

Working with Children Check

In Australia, people who work or volunteer with children are screened for suitability.  


As part of this screening process, nominated state agencies examine an applicant’s police information including criminal charges, offences, findings of guilt and professional conduct reports across the applicant’s lifetime.
