Rugby registration 2018 is here!

What’s new at Wests for 2018

  • All registrations must be completed online. The WRFU will no longer accept paper forms for junior rugby registrations. See below for more information on how to register online.
  • Payments for registration can be made online at the time of registration reducing wait times at registration days. You will still need to attend one of the registration days to get weighed in and purchase any additional gear.
  • A new Online Shop will be available to purchase some gear such as hoodies, training tops, shorts, socks and other gear.
  • Wests have a new artificial turf in our indoor gym that can be used for team practices.

How to Register

Returning Players

  • All players registered last season will receive an email by 10 Feb 2018 with a link to pre-register for the 2018 season. Click on the link at the bottom of the email and update any details that have changed.
  • Those players in tackle grades still need to come to one of the welcome and weigh in days (Wests Club Rooms at Ian Galloway Park). Tackle grades will get weighed in while all players will be able to buy any socks or shorts. It’s also a great opportunity to ask any questions to committee members in person and also let us know if you’d like to volunteer for things like coaching, managing a team or joining the committee. These dates are: 
    • Thursday 8 March 2018, 5:30pm-7:30pm
    • Saturday 10 March 2018, 1:00pm-3:00pm

    If you do not receive an email (e.g. your email address changed from last season), you can still pre-register by filling in the Online Pre-Registration Form.
