At Randwick Rugby, we are incredibly proud of our history, tradition and contribution to the success of NSW and Australian Rugby.

However, we realise to remain successful and relevant we need to deliver the programs, pathways and off field opportunities to attract and retain the best young players. We acknowledge competition in recruitment is fierce and our Club Scholarship program aims to best support new talent and retain our current players.

The professional era has had an undeniable impact on the economics of club rugby. Marquee players are now rarely available and any funding from the Rugby AU or Waratahs is currently a thing of the past. Philosophically we are firmly committed to providing players with education, mentoring and career networks rather than unsustainable player payments.

To achieve this outcome we support our young players through the Randwick Rugby Club Scholarship program. This will support players to simultaneously pursue their rugby and academic/career ambitions.

Randwick District Rugby Union Football Club is committed to providing young players support in their pursuit of degree, diploma or certificate skills programs including University, TAFE and trade apprenticeships.
