At the UQ Junior Bullsharks we are focused on providing a fun and safe way for children and their families to enjoy the game of rugby. We work hard at providing an environment that the whole family can enjoy.

Our ethos is for Fun, Friendship & Community. As players, coaches and officials we train hard, and we play to win, but NEVER at the expense of our ethos.

We have programs for boys and girls in tag and tackle from 3 to 17 years of age. Our JV with UQ rugby means our parent coaches get all the best support from fully qualified coaches from the UQRFC Coaching Academy.
