SIRU is glad to get the below dates and locations out so early prior to the later-than-usual competition start date of Term 2 in 2020.
During the SIRU Junior Council Meeting, all clubs agreed that the school holidays were tricky to negotiate with families often using this time to take a break. So the clubs agreed to start the competition in Term 2, with only the "Winter Holidays" being negotiated in 2020.
The season will start with two Half Gala Days on 3rd and 17th May, followed by a Full Gala Day in Griffith on 31st May. With the growing number of teams and games each year, the clubs agreed to only host Full Gala Days at locations which were capable of hosting all games at (ideally) one ground.
Then we move into another two Half Gala Days on the 14th and 28th June, then straight into a Full Gala Day in Wagga on the 5th July (first weekend of Winter School Holidays).
The regular season closes out with three Half Gala Day on 26th July, 2nd and 16th August, before the Finals begin for those teams eligible in Wagga and Grenfell on consecutive weekends. Champions will be crowned in Grenfell on 30th August, and that will be the end of the Junior Season for another year.
Full details are below, with how the clubs are going to be split at Half Gala Days to come in the next couple of weeks through your clubs!
