Neddies will establish an additional training ground for junior players at James Cook Reserve in Hillarys for the 2014 season.
The new training ground will initially cater for Neddies junior players in the 5-12 year old age bracket.
The move comes 27 years after the Neddies junior club was established from a training base in the northern suburbs (City Beach) in 1986, before later moving to the current training base at The Foreshore.
The move to establish a second junior training ground at James Cook Reserve has primarily been driven by approaches from current and former Neddies players living in the northern suburbs who cannot make it to The Foreshore to junior trainings.
Neddies players training at James Cook Reserve during the season will join the club’s juniors who train at The Foreshore in their Saturday morning games in their respective age-group teams.
Neddies also hopes the new junior training ground at James Cook Reserve will encourage more kids to take up the game of rugby.
Junior trainings at James Cook Reserve will be headed by former Australian Under-16 captain and former Neddies Premier Grade coach, Tony Ball.
The move has been formally endorsed by the WA Junior Rugby Union.
