Is rugby league safe for kids?
As with all sports, there is no 100% guarantee that your child will not be injured when playing Rugby League. However, at Five Dock we pride ourselves on adhering to the NRL SafePlay Code (see above). Our coaches work hard to teach players skills, such as running, catching and tackling so that they can enjoy the game they love in a safe way. Our kids love emulating their idols when they take to the field!
Can girls play?
Yes! Girls are able to play until U12s! After this, games are no longer modified.
