Manly Roos Club Charter

A successful team and club culture doesn’t just happen. It relies on coaches, parents, managers and players all agreeing to some principles on how their team and club should work. These are the principles which we have adopted at the Manly Roos, and everyone can rely on their clubmates to uphold them. They have been developed with many years of experience on what makes for fun and successful teams. Each year at our AGM, we will test and if necessary update these principles.

Please see the Manly Roos Club Charter 2016

Working With Children Check

Although not mandatory by law if you are coaching a team that your child is a member of, the Roos will require all coaches to undergo this check. Simply complete the online form and then present your reference number and ID for checking at a Roads and Maritime office. The check is free for volunteer organisations.

Please email your confirmation to the Club Secretary for filing.

Manager’s Guide to MYRUGBY


  • Fields MUST be roped off to prevent spectators entering the field of play.
  • There should be a marked/designated area for the reserves of both sides to sit.
  • EVERY team MUST have a Ground Marshall in a high vis vest!!!
  • Coaches and Trainers (who wear a high vis vest also) DO NOT ROAM THE SIDELINE. They must stay with the reserves and NOT COACH FROM THE SIDELINE!! I will not hesitate to cite any Coach or Trainer who does not obey the rules!!
  • Trainers can only go on the field when the ball is dead unless attending an injury!
  • The new A Frames as well as the older ones should be prominently displayed.
