The Queanbeyan Whites Juniors fields at least one team in all age groups from Under 7s through to Under 12s.

For more than one team in an age group, Parents may request for players to be place into a specific team due to friendships however this may not always happen. Players may be requested to play up a grade to ensure team numbers are met. This is also to maximise player game time. No team will exceed the Max Squad Numbers.
Training is each Wednesday from 4.30pm at Campese Oval, Queanbeyan.
Parent volunteers are essential to a Junior Rugby Club such as the Whites. The following roles are important for each age group to run smoothly:
All coaches are required to be Smart Rugby qualified. The Club will cover associated costs with qualification. All coaches are also required to comply with Working with Children requirements. Applications for Coaching positions are sent out prior to the beginning of the Training Season.
Managers are responsible for communicating game details to parents, handling match day duties such as sign on sheets, player ID and water bottles and entering scores via the Xplorer App. All team managers are also required to comply with Working with Children requirements.
FIRST AID OFFICER
Each team is required to have a FAIR (First Aid In Rugby) qualified person for First Aid. The Club will cover associated costs with the FAIR qualification. All First Aid Officers are also required to comply with Working with Children requirements.
All teams are required to provide a ground marshal at both home and away games. The ground marshal is responsible for ensuring that spectators adhere to the code of conduct.
All teams are required to provide an assistant referee (touch judge) at both home and away games. The Club will cover associated costs for members that would like to become qualified.
Unless you are qualified, you can only make calls for the ball that has gone into touch.
