Whether you are a new or returning player, we’re excited that you’ve chosen to enjoy your rugby with us at Dee Why Lions.

Lion Cubs (Ages 3 – 5 years)

Our Lion Cubs “train and play” at the same time that our Minis train every Friday night May through to August at the Dee Why Lion’s home ground, James Morgan Reserve (corner of Carawa Rd and Fisher Road, Cromer).

Kids play fun games that help build fitness, hand-eye coordination, and ball skills, all while making new friends and feeling like they’re part of a team.

Your rego will include a specially designed Lion Cub training shirt which they are encouraged to wear every Friday night.

Minis Rugby (U6 – U9)

The Minis Competition is coordinated by Warringah & Manly Junior Rugby Union Clubs.  Participating clubs are: Allambie, Dee Why, Collaroy, Manly, Narrabeen, Newport, Seaforth, Terrey Hills, Wakehurst

The competition is open to both boys and girls and runs from March to August each year, with games scheduled at the above clubs on Saturday mornings.

Our U8/U9 Girls also participate in the Sydney North Girls Rugby (SNGR) competition held at Terrey Hills Rugby Club.
