Newport Rugby Club was founded 54 years ago.
The club is a family and community orientated rugby union club that prides itself on providing a safe and fun environment for boys and girls to learn and develop rugby skills with their mates.
Rugby Union is a game that develops leadership, team spirit, courage, sportsmanship and friendship. These values and traditions develop from the first time a young player shakes hands with their opposite number, leading to a lifelong passion for and involvement with the game at all levels. It’s an inclusive game that transcends size, shape, ability, gender or ethnicity.
Based at Porter Reserve in Newport, NJRC is one of the largest junior rugby clubs in Sydney, with over 500 register Minis and Junior rugby union players aged between 5 and 18 years old. Our players come from Palm Beach to the north, down as south as Mona Vale.
The club is affiliated with Warringah Junior Rugby Union, with many of the junior players representing the Warringah Rats development and representative squads. We are also affiliated to the Sydney Junior Rugby Union (SJRU) and play in a Sydney wide competition from U10s to Opens.
Newport Junior Rugby club is nurtured and managed with thanks to the following 18 volunteer committee members.
