Info For Players

As a new league we are unable to cater for every age group at present but we are working to provide playing opportunities for as many children as possible.

RFL Guidance on Youth & Junior Rugby League

Both males and females can play youth and junior Rugby League, in fact from under sevens up to the under 11 age group teams are of mixed gender.

In 2014, our first year, HYRL ran a boys under 12s league. Provision for other age groups and female teams will be reviewed regularly.

In 2015 HYRL will cater for u12 & u13's boys.

That means children in school years 6, 7 and 8.

Can my child play in another age group?


Under 15s - To play U15s you must be in Years 9 or 10 at school.

Under 13s - To play U13s you must be in Years 8 or 7 at school.

Under 12s - To play U12s you must be in Years 7 or 6 at school.

Under 11s - To play U11s you must be in Years 6 or 5 at school.

Under 9s - To play U9s you must be in Years 3 or 4 at school.

Players are allowed to play up an age group but they can't play down an age group. This is not negotiable.

Not in the age brackets catered for by HYRL?

Any player aged outside of the age brackets for the current season's teams should ask their parent/guardian to contact our player registrations secretary Glenn Tyreman who will help direct the player to an appropriate club if at all possible.
