Under 6

Welcome to Easts Tigers Under 6, 2021.  Players must have turned 5 years prior to the first game in 2021 to qualify for an Under 6 team. If this is your first season with Easts or in fact rugby, then welcome to our club.

Navigating your way around new websites, training fields on a Friday night, getting to know new parents of equally excited or bewildered players and knowing who to ask when you have a question are all part of the fun that goes with joining a club such as Easts. The first thing you should know is that the club is run by volunteers and your support is greatly appreciated.  It is difficult to know who to offer your assistance to so the first port of call Erin Toohey – rugbyadmin@eaststigers.com who works full time in the clubhouse office.

The management committee is also a voluntary group of dedicated individuals who appreciate any offers of assistance.  The Club appoints a volunteer “coach” from within the teams parent group to run the program from 4:30pm – 5:30pm on Friday night to guide and develop the boys & girls.  Any parent wishing to volunteer for a coaching or management position is to contact Tyrell Barker, rugby@eaststigers.com Subject: 2021Coaching and Management.

The fee for Under 6 is $380 for the season.  The fee will include a “Tiger for Life” training shirt, Club Medal, all levies, insurance and team photo.

What to wear?  Game day: 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 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.  Training nights players can wear the above outfit as well.
