Gymea Junior Rugby League Football Club
We are proud to be a vital part of the Sutherland Shire community since our founding year in 1962
Known as “The Gorillas”, we are one of the largest clubs in the Shire with over 600 players and 49 teams from Under 6 to Open Age Rugby League, Girls League tag and Mens Over 35 League Tag
We promote strong community values, based on respect, sportsmanship, and family. It’s not all about winning and losing. It is about learning and growing, promoting fitness and a healthy lifestyle while learning the skills of Rugby League and the opportunity to gain life-long friendships that few other sports can offer.
Our Club is run by very passionate volunteers, men and women who are dedicated to working hard to uphold our club’s culture and develop Rugby League in the Shire. We firmly believe the sport of Rugby League brings people, families and the community together. Boys and Girls start playing with Gymea from four years old and we are proud to be part of their formative years while never losing our focus on the kids. Striving to ensure all players from U6 to A Grade get an equal go on the field.
With a proud history, many great Rugby League players were Gorillas, including the late Cronulla and Australian Kangaroos Captain Greg Pierce. Former Sharks Captains David Hatch and Greg Nixon. Current Australian and Kangaroos Captain Boyd Cordner played a few seasons at Gymea along with many others who played First Grade and NRL. Full list of former Gymea players
As a community based sporting organisation we welcome all to Gymea JRLFC. We work hard to ensure every registered player and their families are part of the club through regular social gatherings in our Clubhouse and events during the season.
Come down to our home ground, known as the “The Gorilla Pit” any weekend during the season and you will find a vibrant, fun and welcoming environment for kids to play the great sport of Rugby League
