Assist

Junior Sport wouldn’t exist with out the dedication of volunteers that allow boys, girls, ladies and men play the games that they love. And North Sydney Brothers are no different, with an army of volunteers ensuring that everyone enjoys their rugby league experience on the lower north shore of Sydney.

There are many ways to be involved in our great club:

    • Team Coach (requires accreditation)
    • Team Trainer (requires accreditation)
    • Team Manager
    • Canteen Assistant
    • Ground Manager

All these roles are filled week in and week out by our dedicated volunteers, who are assisted in obtaining the appropriate training and qualifications as directed/required by the North Sydney Junior Rugby League, New South Wales Rugby League and/or the National Rugby League.
