Minis teams train weekly on Friday evenings at Bantry Bay Reserve and play in non-competition games. These games are run jointly by Manly and Warringah Rugby Unions.


In the final month of U7 we transition children safely into tackle with practice at training and games against Manly clubs.

Raiders offers mixed and girls only teams who play against other girls teams on the Northern Beaches.

As the children’s skills levels progress the more technical approach there is to the game, with the

U8 and U9 teams being introduced to scrums, tackling and line-outs and the game is played on a half size field. At U9 level there is an increase in the number of players to 10 per side.
