Welcome to Dural Rugby
Welcome to the 2018 Winter Rugby Season
We are looking forward to another great year of rugby at Dural Rugby Club.
This year, as you may know, the Government has introduced a new incentive to encourage kids to play sport. The Government will reimburse parents $100 per child to help with registration costs.
As a result of this initiative we have delayed our online registration going live until 31st January to align with the "Active Kids Rebate Voucher" role out.
We would like to encourage all returning parents to redeem their Active Kids Voucher via Services NSW on 31 January 2018 and once in possession of their unique code / voucher number, register with Dural Rugby online. See below for instructions
*** ACTIVE KIDS REBATE VOUCHER ***
You are now able to log in to ServicesNSW and register for your voucher to be emailed through to you. Seems it’s opened up early.
Register to have a ServicesNSW account or Log In if you are an existing member
Then once you are registered
Go down to the box called Services then click on Office of Sports
Then apply for voucher for each child individually
Keep your codes in a safe place for when registrations open
We understand from the NSW Government that should families register with our club (or any club) before redeeming their voucher, they will be unable to receive the $100 rebate (the club is also unable to claim that amount from the NSW Government). In circumstances where families register before receiving their voucher, the full registration fees will be payable. Please do not register until you have a voucher!
Registrations are still open online.
For season information including the calendar please visit our new website – www.duralrugbyclub.com.au. Please check it regularly throughout the season for updates. The calendar is subject to change and does change fairly regularly throughout the year. There is also a calendar available at www.sjru.com.au. We are also on Facebook, so please like us and regularly check our page.
The season information attachment includes details regarding the appropriate age group for your child, registration costs, registration dates and club information.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the registrar at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
Walla Tag Season 2017 has completed. Thank you to everyone who participated.
