About us

Ross River Redskins play in the Townsville and District Rugby Union competition. In 2020, we fielded junior teams in under 8, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 age groups. We will field a 3rd grade social team in the senior grades, and new players are welcome.

In 2021, we intend to enter teams in the following junior age groups and grades, and require players for all teams.
  • Under 8 (Boys and girls born 2013  and 2014)
  • Under 10 (Boys and girls born in 2011 and 2012)
  • Under 12 (Boys and girls born in 2009 and 2010)
  • Under 13 (Boys born in 2008)
  • Under 14 (Boys born in 2007)
  • Under 16 (Boys born in 2005 and 2006)
  • Under 14 Girls (Girls born in 2007 and 2008)
  • 3rd Grade Mens

Our home ground

We train and play our home matches at the Bindal Sports Grounds in Annandale.

Senior training is Thursday evenings from 6:30pm (starting in February).

All of our junior teams train on Thursday afternoons from 5:30pm, but some age groups may have additional training.

The Season

The 2021 Townsville rugby season for seniors starts in March and goes until the first week of September. Seniors play mostly on Saturdays.

The 2021 junior season begins in Term 2 after Easter and goes until the end of Term 3 in September. Redskins will have training, trial matches and other rugby activity in Term 1. Juniors play mostly on Friday nights with some Saturday games. 

Fun first!

We have a Bouncy Castle at every Redskins home game (when COVID restrictions allow). Our priority is that our junior players have fun and make friends.

While we have fun, the kids also learn the game from qualified and dedicated coaches.
