Divisions For Under 12 & 13 Information
Townsville and District Junior Rugby League – Announcement
At Monday night’s Board Meeting a motion was tabled to introduce divisions in the under 12 and under 13 age groups the motion was carried with a vote of 8 for and 3 against.
This has been debated over the last couple of years and had slowly gained momentum to reach this point, the reason for this was to:-
1. To identify players who were at varying stages of development and have them play in a competition accordingly.
2. Allow players to develop at their own rate while enjoying the game
3. Prevent huge scores being posted which was not helping players on either side, with players being demoralised, losing self-esteem and not enjoying the game, by being beaten by blow out scores
4. Encourage increased player involvement and enjoyment whilst developing in a game they love.
The Competitions will be named after our Life Members who, also have Best and Fairest Medallions named after them for that age group.
Under 13 – Roger Harnden Cup
Under 13 – Leigh Anderson Cup
Under 12 – Suzette Harnden Cup
Under 12 – Joyce Petersen Cup
