You are able to apply to Services NSW for an Active Kids Voucher which will subsidise the cost of the registration. You will need to apply for the voucher prior to starting the registration process. Make sure you record the Voucher Number and Expiry Date. Click here to access Services NSW

Please note: U10’s and above are graded playing competitions, so players may be subject to selection processes as required.

Age Dispensation

Anyone interested in seeking dispensation to play down an age group should contact the club registrar (registrar@bowralrugby.com.au) for details regarding weight and height criteria. Age dispensation was introduced in 2017 enabling smaller players the opportunity to complete at one age group below their chronological age. To apply please read and complete the dispensation form. This informs parents about the process to follow in seeking dispensation.

You will need to fill in your child’s details and get a medical certificate stating the weight and height of the child. If there are other relevant other issues they’d like considered they need to include this too. They then need to forward this to the club’s registrar at registrar@bowralrugby.com.au

Once approved they will be notified and only then will their child be able to play down.
