Cronulla Junior League Registrations Reach 5500 Milestone
Updated: Jun 20
Despite only five rounds of the 2023 season played to date, Cronulla Junior Rugby League (CJRL) have already broken the 5500 barrier for player registrations.
This incredible figure well and truly confirms CJRL as one of the major Rugby League districts affiliated with NSWRL, reaching this record number of registrations after only a few years ago facing major challenges.
Female participation continues to grow exponentially, placing CJRL as a leading district in NSWRL for female participation in both the tackle and leaguetag formats of the game.
CJRL Chairman Nathan Waugh has applauded the news of this recordbreaking figure. “It gives me great pleasure to celebrate this incredible achievement with all our affiliated clubs and the volunteers who have made this happen.
It wasn’t too long ago that we faced some real challenges as far as participation goes, but I can only praise the work of the CJRL board and clubs in recent years which has driven an amazing resurgence despite the disruptions of recent seasons, and acknowledge our partners whose support has enabled us to thrive.”
“We continue to work to recognise new opportunities and develop initiatives that better cater to our participants, to engage with Rugby League followers in the Shire, and to promote CJRL competitions as up there with the best in any NSWRL metropolitan district.
Already the board has tabled several new potential projects with the clubs with a view to 2024, so we may see this growth continue.” Waugh added. 2023 CJRL registrations currently sit at 5538, up from a figure of 5338 in 2022 (increase of 10.46%).
Male registrations to date for 2023 stand at 3774 (up 0.8% on 2022) and female registrations are currently 1764 (up 10.45% on 2022). New player registrations remain open until June 30.
