If you thought the Roosters did well on-field this season, they matched their efforts off-field by immersing themselves within their Eastern Suburbs, Central Coast and Adelaide communities.

The players clocked up 725 appearances in 2017, devoting close to 1,800 hours in the community.

There were plenty of highlights over the 2017 season and we have selected the standout community stories.

Roosters Brand New Mini League

The Sydney Roosters developed and introduced a brand new Mini League to the heart of the Eastern Suburbs in April this year.

Over 250 kids participated in the first season of the local family friendly competition for boys and girls on Sunday morning at Waverly Oval

Mini League was designed to create a positive and rewarding experience for all participants, with updated rules to ensure a fun, free-flowing game where players are rewarded for their efforts.

Above all, Mini League was all about the kids having fun.

Roosters Head Coach Trent Robinson, Michael Gordon and rugby league legend Andrew Johns were often spotted on the sidelines cheering their kids on, while Rocky The Rooster was always a fan favourite.

Roosters Junior Clubs Bondi United, Clovelly Crocodiles, St Charles Waverley and Paddington Colts all had participants in the local competition.
