7s skills session and first game – Sunday, 17th September 🎉

We are so excited to finally welcome our youngest players to the sport! This coming Sunday we will run a basic 30 minute skills session for all 7s teams followed by their first game (Round 1) and a BBQ afterwards.

Location 📍

All games on Sunday will be played at our main fields within the Newcastle Harness Racing Club at New Lambton. Please see our location page for a detailed description of how to get to our main fields, where to park and field numbers.

Draw 📅

Games on Sunday are either at 5pm or 5:30pm. Here are the links to the draws – you just need to know the name of the team your child is playing in:

The draw will tell you the time you play and the field number (see location section for a link to the field map).

Why do Wild Queens (Girls 7s) have two games on Sunday?

The Girls 7s age group has five teams so we have scheduled for a team to play two games, one after another, so everyone gets a game.

Skills Session 🏉

Your skills session will be before your game. We ask that you arrive one hour earlier than your game time in order to get ready for the skills session. That is:

  • If your game is scheduled at 5pm, please meet at 4pm near the junior clubhouse so we can get everyone organised and move onto the fields to start our skills session by 4:15pm.
  • If your game is scheduled at 5:30pm, please meet at 4:30pm near the junior clubhouse  so we can get everyone organised and move onto the fields to start our skills session by 4:45pm.

See the location map if you don’t know where the junior clubhouse is.

Playing gear 🎽

The basic playing gear is:

  • Reversible playing singlet – available from the club for $25.
  • Any shorts/tights – colour is not important.
  • Most standard football boots or joggers.

For the reversible playing singlet, wear BLUE if your team is on the left in the draw, RED if you team is on the right. See our uniform page for more details.

Haven’t got a reversible playing singlet yet? You will be able to purchase one on Sunday – card payments only.


After the game, all 7s players may enjoy a FREE sausage sandwich. We will also have some available for family members to purchase.

Scoring ✍️

There is no scoring, ladders or finals for 7s.

Round 2 and beyond ⏩

The following is the general plan for the remaining 7s games:

  • Round 2 for 7s will follow on Tuesday, 19th September at our main fields.
  • Rounds 3 – 10: When we return in Term 4, 7s games will be played at our extra fields.
  • Round 11, the final round on 5th December, will return to our main fields for the last game where all teams play and there is a free BBQ for players. In some cases, teams may have a second game so that no team has a bye.
