Our fees for the 2019 season are set as follows:

  • $180 per player for U8s & U9s

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS … … The NSW Government are giving a $100 Voucher to each child who participates in an approved activity
In 2019 the NSW Government will supply a $100 voucher for children in an approved activity, such as Rugby Union. Various providers have been approved by the Government and will be able to redeem the vouchers against registration fees. The Australian Rugby Union (ARU) is the designated provider for Rugby Union.

Parents will need a “Service NSW” account to receive their voucher which can only be used once for each child.  To be able to claim the voucher, parents must register and pay on-line in Rugby Link. More details about the scheme can be found at the NSW Govt – Office of Sport website.

If you use the voucher when registering your player, the cost to you for the 2019 season becomes:

  • $  30 per player for U6s and U7s
  • $  80 per player for U8s & U9s
  • $120 per player for all Juniors (with a $40 discount for additional children in the same family. See details on multi-players below)
