Girls 7s Rugby Program
In 2016, Rugby 7s was played at the Olympics for the first time.
The Australian Women’s team, won the gold medal while the Australian Men’s 7s team also put in a commendable performance. Their combined success at international level has increased interest and participation in Rugby 7s.
Rugby 7s is a unique, faster, modified 15s rugby game that allows for a quick outcome finishing in just 14 minutes of play. Sydney Rugby Union has seen the number of players enjoying this game sky rocket in the last few years. The game originated in Scotland in 1883 and is now an Olympic sport, played in many countries around the world.
Girls 7s is a new concept for Burraneer Rugby Club, but in 2018 the amazing U16 girls won the State Cup with the expert guidance of their coach Dave Chapman.
As the name implies, there are only 7 players per team on the field at any one time. The game is fast and exciting and played by all ages and abilities. The Girls 7s competition is run by Sydney Junior Rugby Union. The competition is run in waves throughout the season. Girls can register for one or multiple waves:
Wave 1: Sizzling 7s
(Late February - Early April)
Girls 15-a-side District Comp
(May - June)
Wave 2: Frosty 7s
(Late June - Late August)
NSW State Championships

Burraneer Rugby Club fields teams in U11, U13, U15 and U17 Waves as well as the 15-a-side competition and compete in the NSW State Championships. Training for all girls is 5:00pm Friday afternoons, and interested players are welcome to train with us for as long as they need to feel confident before registering.
Working With Children
Our club also follows the “Working With Children” (the old “Child Protection”) policies and procedures, and our Working With Children Co-ordinator ensures all volunteers working with a junior team are registered.
In addition to this website, we also post information and photos on the club Facebook & Instagram pages from time to time. We have found this to be hugely popular with families and has helped our club expand its marketing and communications to a broader audience. However, we are also mindful of family’s entitlement to privacy and value concerns from any parents of their children’s photos appearing on social media against parent’s wishes. The same goes for any adults that may be employed in positions requiring a high degree of privacy. So, please contact our Communications Co-ordinator if you have any issues.
