About Kurnell Stingrays Junior Rugby League Football Club

Kurnell is home to the mighty Kurnell Stingrays JRLFC, one of the Shire's favourite rugby league clubs. The name 'Stingrays' originates from Cook's own log when he first named Botany Bay 'Stingray Harbour'.

The Kurnell Junior Rugby League Football Club was formed after a committee meeting on 17th November 1991 where local members of the community got together and decided it was time for Kurnell to have their own rugby league

club. In all, seven teams took to the field for the 1992 season. The clubhouse in Marton Park was built using funds raised by the Kurnell Community and with skills and hard work from many locals. 

Our club caters to an active membership in excess of 440 members, including players, volunteers and team staff. Today the Stingrays are fielding both male and female rugby league from the under 6's through to senior teams and League Tag teams from under 7 Girls League Tag through to Open Women's and Over 30 Women's and Over 35 Men's Tag.

Kurnell Stingrays is a club in a unique position, being located on a peninsular in a small community, but our members, past and present are deeply proud of their connection to the club, and enjoy the sporting and social aspects that the club provides. The old adage "Once a Stingray, always a Stingray" is profoundly evident within the club. 

We believe that rugby league should be a fun, social event that allows children and adults to feel connected, included and valued, whilst learning and developing the skills of the game. At the Stingrays we believe the physical, social and emotional benefits of playing a team sport is far more important than winning, and have like minded volunteers leading our teams.

The Kurnell Stingrays has been awarded Club Of The Year in the Cronulla Junior League District three times since the club's inception, most recently in 2022. We are very proud of this award and how our club has grown and strengthened throughout the years.
