The Club was established in 1969 as the Roselea-Carlingford Junior Rugby Football Club and is now known as North Rocks Rugby Union Inc. Our Club is a non-profit organization. Being an incorporated association we are run by an executive team of 6.
Our training and home ground is the picturesque Kingsdene Oval, Felton Road, Carlingford. Kingsdene Oval has been our home ground for over 20 years.
North Rocks Rugby Union Inc is an Eastwood District Village Club and plays in the Sydney Juniors Sunday competition, visiting grounds all over Sydney from the Northern Beaches all the way down to the Mountains. Eastwood District is currently the premier district rugby club in Australia.
The Club draws its players predominantly from the surrounding suburbs of North Rocks, Carlingford, West Pennant Hills, Northmead, Baulkham Hills and Oatlands.
During the 2017 season North Rocks hosted visiting teams from New Zealand in a junior trans-Tasman clash and will again be hosting this in 2019.
Club Goals and Visions
We want all players and their families to enjoy the benefits of individuals caring for each other and looking to serve one another through open communication and participation in club activities. We encourage you to find your role within the life of the club.
Winning or losing is not in itself the measure of success.
A winning rugby community is a community;
Which values its members and their individual giftedness;
Which shares a common purpose;
Which works together in harmony;
Which is sensitive to the needs of others.
