Girls Rugby 7s

Hustle and Heart set us apart.

In 2017, we formed the first ever all-girls Rugby 7s team at Surfers Paradise Dolphins. Since then, our teams have won plenty of games and learnt lessons from the ones we have lost– but no one is counting, and we’re not playing for sheep stations! The great thing about Girls Rugby 7s at Surfers Dolphins is every player gets plenty of time on the field to grow (even 17-year-old beginners).

Some of our teammates had never touched a Rugby ball before, some have played in a boys team since U6, and some were born with rugby in their blood – their dad proudly watching them donning the green and gold as a second or third generation Dolphin. But, we all LOVE the game and know we will always be part of this Rugby Family.

Why Play Rugby 7s?

TEAMWORK
Feeling part of a team encourages strong friendships outside school groups and helps develop social skills.
RESPECT
Healthy competition teaches girls to appreciate differences in teammates and to respect their coaches, opponents and referees.
FITNESS
Rugby 7s is a fast-paced game of skill. It suits boys and girls of all shapes and sizes and helps build strength, stamina and coordination.
DEVELOPMENT
Rugby 7s helps develop both physical fitness and concentration through regular training and learning strategic game plays.
ROLE MODELS
Coaches, managers, older players and ex-players are an excellent source of positive inspiration for impressionable young players.
FUN
Girls love it! And, parents love watching their children gain confidence and motivation through healthy competition.

Uniforms, Training & Game Day info...

This year, our incredible partners BLK have sponsored all our team uniforms from Juniors through to Seniors. All Girls Rugby 7s players receive a FREE club training shirt and polo shirt as part of their club membership. A numbered match jersey will be supplied to each player on game night and returned to the team Manager at the end of the game – Club shorts ($30) & Club socks ($15) are available to purchase from the club. All players need to provide their own compulsory mouth guard, boots and optional headgear/body armour.

  • Surfers Paradise Rugby Union Club is used six nights a week during the rugby season by Junior, Senior and Rugby 7s teams. Individual team coaches determine how many sessions and when practices will be. Players (and parents) are notified of training sessions and times by their team Manager. The girls Rugby 7s teams all train on Tuesday and Thursday nights – Follow your team on Team App / Facebook / email for the most up-to-date information.

  • Surfers Paradise Girls Rugby 7s teams (U13, U15, U17 & Opens) play two games each week against other Gold Coast District Rugby Union Clubs, mainly on Friday nights and the occasional Saturday Carnival, starting from April through until August in 2019. Your team Manager will notify you each week of the upcoming game time and location – Team Ladders and fixtures information for the season will be available and regularly updated on the Rugby Link website.

  • Some Pre-season club days and games are organised to promote our club and to encourage a good rugby experience. However, coaches of individual teams are ultimately responsible for ensuring their players are match fit and prepared for the season ahead.

  • The first games of GCDRU Women 7s competition are scheduled to start on Friday 26 April through to Friday 24 August, with a short break in the middle for June/July school holidays. This year there will be one competition (season) consisting of a combination of Friday night games and 3 x Tournaments on a Saturday. The draw for 2019 Girls 7s teams will be available on the Rugby Link website before the Easter weekend and should be checked regularly for unexpected late changes. Dates for Saturday Tournaments will also be made available prior to commencement of the competition.

  • Each year there is a selection of 7s Carnival days after the GCDRU season has finished. Your team Manager will notify you of any upcoming tournaments and locations, these are an additional cost to your club membership and team entry will depend upon player interest.
