Is there medical support at the games?

The club employs appropriately trained sports medicine staff to attend all home games.  Their advice is to be taken by game officials (referees, coaches, managers and parents) regarding injuries to players and the ability of the player to continue playing. One sports medic will be engaged per full-size field in operation.

Is there insurance provided?

Information regarding the insurance paid on your behalf from your registration fees can be found on Rugby Australia’s website.

What is the uniform for players?

Gameday: Jerseys are supplied by the club, and the team manager may organise a roster of parents to wash the team set each week. Each player is to wear the Easts shirt to the games; this is the shirt they will receive with their fees, along with Easts shorts and socks (available to purchase from the Merchandise shop) and moulded football boots, blades or sports shoes (joggers/runners).  No screw-in boot tags are permitted.  Any additional playing gear ie head gear, must be IRB approved. We encourage parents to get into the spirit of the game and purchase a club polo to wear.  On training nights players can wear the above outfit as well or last year’s shirt.

How will I know which age group my child will play in?

Check the website eaststigers.com or subscribe to Facebook and Twitter to receive updates on your phone.  A decision is made before 6.45am on game days or 4.00pm of training nights.  Do not phone the club, please check the website.One sports medic will be engaged per full size field in operation.Allocation of players to teams? Players and teams are not graded at this age group.  If you played last year and register on one of the sign on days the club will allocate you to the same team as last year unless you request otherwise. Registering after this time is dependent on spots available in teams.  It is a very large club and quite a complex task for volunteers to manage but the club is always willing to try and accommodate requests where possible.
