6 Winter Sports for Sydney Kids

by Rebecca (follow)
Winter (1)     
It's that time of year when you need to start registering your kids for winter sports. So here's a list of the most popular sports that kids play in Sydney during the winter months. We have also included the contact details of each sport's registered association, to help you find the Club closest to you.


RUGBY UNION

Rugby Union is one of Sydney's fastest growing junior sports. You can start playing at 4 years of age and continue for as long as you like. For the younger age groups (U6s and U7s), they play tag rugby and then modified tackle rugby is introduced for kids in the U8s age group. Rugby 7s is also hugely popular now (especially for girls), since our national women's team won a gold medal at the Olympics. Rugby has become a very inclusive sport with both boys and girls being able to play, as well as kids with special needs.

NETBALL

A perennial favourite with mainly young girls, Netball is played all over Sydney every winter. Suncorp NetSetGo is a program that introduces netball to children as young as 5 years of age - it's a fun mix of netball and dance to keep kids engaged and active.
