The North Sydney District Rugby League and the North Sydney Junior Rugby League, combine to provide opportunities for players to progress their skills and desires to play Rugby League at the highest level possible. Many players that have progressed through the Bears System have performed at the NRL, State & International level.
Opportunities are offered through local development teams in the Under 13’s, Under 14’s and Under 15’s age groups, along with our representative teams who participate in the Harold Matthews Cup (under 16’s) S.G Ball (Under 18’s) and Jersey Flegg Cup (Under 20s) competitions.
In September 2018 the North Sydney District Rugby League Club formed a new five partnership (2019-2023) with the Sydney Roosters for the Bears ISP team to act as a feeder club to their NRL team.
To accommodate the North Sydney Bears Senior contracted players who are not selected for the Intrust Super Premiership throughout the season, the Bears have also partnered with the Asquith Magpies in the Sydney Shield and Ron Massey Cup Competitions. These partnerships also allow opportunities for emerging North Sydney Junior Representatives to have experience in open age competition.
