ABOUT

Pride

  • We have a long history with the community of Shellharbour. 

  • The Stingrays began in 1962 when Rugby League was first introduced into Stella Maris School, Shellharbour.

  • In 2002 the Stingrays JRLFC Shellharbour was formed.

  • In 2014 the Stingrays RLFC Shellharbour was formed, with the expansion into the South Coast Group 7 Senior League. 

  • The junior and senior clubs work closely together to ensure that the Stingrays is available to nurture the growth of our youth and committed rugby league players.

Commitment

  • The support of both clubs will ensure that the Stingrays brand is successful and prosperous into the future.

  • In a short period of time, we have built on our reputation and grown our senior Stingrays teams to field 9 teams in 2021.

    • Mens First Grade

    • Mens Reserve Grade

    • Mens Third Grade

    • Mens Under 18s

    • Ladies Tackle

    • Ladies League Tag (LLT2)

Ready

  • The rapid expansion of our senior teams now requires us to seek out an alternative ground/playing field to share the usage loads on the current playing fields at Flinders Reserve, and to support the growth of the Stingrays RLFC.

  • The Flinders Reserve has limited opportunities for any significant development for both the junior and senior teams. The primary purpose of the reserve is a storm water detention basin, with the provision for dual usage for open space and recreational activities. 

  • We are now ready to explore alternative opportunities for the Senior teams that meet the requirements for a successful sports club, including:

    • A grade standard and dimensioned rugby league playing surface.

    • Additional space and area for training facilities.

    • Adequate spatial area to build an amenities building, Stingrays Club house and function building, car parking and storage.

    • Appropriate fencing to secure and control crowd attendances.

    • Consideration of adjoining neighbours, access and conflicting land uses.
