Let Kids be Kids - Sideline behaviour 

  • Play by The Rules address sideline behaviour at Junior sport through the “Let Kids be Kids” national campaign. Dean Mumm from the Waratahs features in the campaign, along with players from other sporting codes like Ellyse Perry. The voices of children in the campaign have powerful messages about how poor sideline behaviour impacts on them.  


About Us

  • Norths Pirates Junior Rugby Club is a rugby union club for children (boys and girls) aged 5 to 17.
  • It is run by volunteers dedicated to the Club's philosophy of rugby skills development of children and the embodiment of a local rugby community, along with the potential to be a future player or supporter of grade rugby, Super Rugby and international rugby.
  • Our home ground is Tunks Park (western end), Brothers Avenue, Cammeray, NSW 2062.
  • Norths Pirates Junior Rugby Union Club was originally called Cammbridge Bay which was made up from 3 clubs – Cammeray, Northbridge and Neutral Bay. The Neutral Bay club was active as far back as the 1890s and predates Northern Suburbs Rugby Club. Cammbridge Bay rugby competed in the Sydney junior competition until 1987 when Norths Seniors took control and reformed the club as Norths Pirates. The club is one of 4 feeder clubs to the Northern Suburbs District and ultimately to the Norths Seniors Shute Shield club.
