Rugby – Welcome to the 2023 Season

Rugby Indigenous Round

Rugby Indigenous Round

We would like to welcome all Waverley College families to what looks to be a very promising year of rugby. We would particularly like to welcome all new players and families.

Waverley College has a very proud history of rugby. I encourage new families to have a look at the photos and records found in the T & M Hayes (Queens Park) Pavilion at some stage this season, to give you an idea of the proud history you are stepping into. You are all very welcome!

Training Schedule

Next week, training commences at Queens Park. A reminder that the weekly training schedule is below:

  • Monday and Wednesdays: 13s, 14s and 15s – Queens Park, 3:30pm-5pm
  • Tuesday and Thursdays: Opens and 16s – Queens Park, 3:30pm-5pm

All players are expected to bring along rugby gear (jersey, shorts, socks, mouthguard and headgear). Students are to walk to Queens Park after school where they will get changed in allocated sections.

*We do ask students to walk down in a safe fashion by crossing the roads at the traffic lights.

Lost Property

It is a good idea before the season begins, that all players label all their gear and clothing (particularly any new items such as boots and headgear). Each season we have a collection of lost property at Queens Park. If uniform/gear is labelled with the student’s name, it will usually find its way back to the owner!

Team App

A reminder to all players, parents and families to ensure that you download the Waverley College app. Please ensure you subscribe to ‘Rugby.’ The app contains all the information you need to know about the season ahead, including fixtures, teams lists, and any last-minute announcements.

2023 Sponsorship Opportunities

During each Saturday home fixture in the 2023 season, Waverley College Rugby will publish a program. Over the years, we have had many generous supporters in the community. Any parents/carers or families, who may have a business and are interested in sponsoring Waverley College Rugby in 2023, are welcome to email me at to place an advert in the program.

I look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks at Queens Park.

Waverley to win!


Mr John McCoy

Convenor of Rugby
