Welcome to the Home of Rory!
PARTICIPATION and FUN are the cornerstones of the Club Philosophy.
In summary, every child will receive equal time on the paddock, regardless of age, weight, height, ability or shoe size. In order for the Club to fulfil its goals, it is essential that we provide a family oriented environment where mothers, brothers, sisters, grandparents and any other family member or friend are genuinely welcomed.
At Hornsby you can spend your entire rugby career at the one club, not having to change as you move from Juniors to Seniors. A major benefit of the close link with our seniors is that coaches and assistant coaches are often drawn from their ranks. The Seniors have an important role as mentors to the junior players as they come through the ranks.
This is what Matt Kean, Member of Parliment, Member for Hornsby and also the Hornsby Junior Club Patron, says of rugby:
"As a former junior rugby union player myself I know first-hand the great skills and attributes which are nurtured and developed playing this wonderful sport. Hornsby Junior Rugby Club has a long standing tradition in the Hornsby Shire for its professionalism both on and off the field. I commend the hard work and dedication of the club's staff in promoting the code's grass-roots participation while also upholding the game's core values such as discipline, leadership and respect."
