It was another great weekend of junior footy in Round 4 of the Toowoomba Junior Rugby League competition.
Acting TJRL President Brad Steer has commended the parents, volunteers and spectators of the League on another great weekend of local footy in the region as part of Let Kids Be Kids Round.
“On a weekend which was dedicated to letting kids have fun and do what they love, it was fantastic to see our players, coaches and officials being respected,” Steer said.
Steer, also a life member of the TJRL, said he had seen an increased emphasis on winning and excessive pressure from the sidelines creep in over recent years.
“It is very simple; we need to provide our young players with a positive environment to play the greatest game of all,” he said.
“Unless it is positive, it’s pointless.”
The TJRL continues the season with no on-field misconduct which has warranted disciplinary action.
