St Ives Rugby competes in the Sydney Suburban (subbies) 3rd division. 2018 will see St Ives seniors field 3 senior grade teams as well as a re-vitalised U21 colts team.
St Ives Rugby has a fantastic Clubhouse at Hassall Park. Our top balcony has a great match day vista and licensed bar. We welcome all to join us throughout the year and share the Spirit of Rugby.
With a great bunch of blokes and enthusiastic coaches. This year promises fresh expertise, good rugby, sensational atmosphere and a new era at St Ives rugby.
With a focus on player Recruitment and player conditioning – We have identified the need to have a good value proposition for players at the club. So therefore, have a strength conditioning program to be included as part of the preparation for the season. Several events for our home games as well as a social calendar within the playing members have also been planned.
We would like to extend an invitation to those who share in the passion of rugby to join the club as player, coach, social member, associate member or volunteer in an administrator role to build the club in 2018 and beyond.
We owe a great debt to the sponsors of our club, and with their support we are able to support the players and contribute to the St Ives community.
Should you like to speak to us directly or have any further questions we will be happy to discuss with you your thoughts on playing or volunteering for St Ives Rugby Club.
Players are warmly welcomed from all over the North Shore and beyond. Because many of our colts are often studying and yet to be financially independent, our colts players have been granted a special subsidised registration rate.
In recognition to the fantastic support we have received from the many neighbouring Gordon village clubs, our colts jersey also incorporates a large stag front and back.
Our colts are coached by dynamic duo Paul Reitberger and Richard Wood (228 senior games including 3 x Stockdale Cup Premierships in 1995, 1996 & 2000). Fellas, bring whatever enthusiasm you have, the colts are back again!
Please pass the news on to your mates. All welcome! Join the colts FaceBook messenger group.

GEAR / EQUIPMENT
- Shorts and Socks – New players will receive free of charge. Returning players may purchase at minimal cost. Available pre-season details TBA.
- Jerseys – Supplied by the club. Each manager is responsible for issuing and collection on match day.
- Boots – Must be IRB approved. Moulded or screw-in OK (studs must not be sharp or missing).
- Headgear & Body Armour – Must be IRB approved.
- Training Gear and Merchandise – Purchase quality Paladin gear directly from our online store. We will look to stock items in the future. However, for the moment please allow lead time of approx 4 -6 weeks for delivery.
- Mouthguards – For many, a boil and bite mouthguard may be adequate. However, the ADA recommends a custom fitted mouthguard as being superior. Better comfort, protection and speech. Our sponsor Boss Hog Mouthguards supplies various local dentists with superior custom fitted mouthguards and most healthcare funds offer generous rebates. Why not visit your local dentist and get a dental health check at the same time.
St Ives Rugby Club had its birth in April 1957 when “a motley team of 12 year olds trooped onto the field to inaugurate the Saints tradition”. At this time, St Ives was still a largely rural community made up of market gardens and orchards.
In 2017 St Ives Rugby celebrated 60 years of rugby.

Matches and training will be ON unless notified by either your team manager or posted as news on our Seniors TeamApp.
Please be aware due to reasonably good drainage, Hassall Park can receive special clearance contrary to Council Notices, allowing for some common sense. In this case, coaches will train in areas of the main pitches.
For training nights, a decision to cancel will often not be made until 3pm.
For matches, every effort is made to notify teams with good notice. However, please understand if the decision to cancel is not made until you have already made the journey. Grounds are often assessed before play commences.
The ground status of Hassall Park will be posted on the St Ives Rugby website homepage.
