Why Play Rugby at Lindfield?

Looking for an all inclusive sport for your child that burns their abundant energy and keeps them fit, in a social environment!

Rugby is the ultimate team sport, building important life skills such as respect, resilience, personal communication and team work, all in a fun and supportive environment.

The great thing about rugby is that there’s as a spot for every kid on the team, no matter their size, age or experience. Boys & Girls from U4 all the way through to U17 are all welcome, and there has been a surge of girls taking to the field with almost a 50/50 split in schools across Australia.

If you or your child are considering rugby for your winter sport, we would love you to join our Lindfield Junior Rugby Club!

If you would like more information please contact us via this pre-registration link https://www.lindfieldjuniorrugby.com.au/preregistration

Information for 2021


  • Rugby is for boys and girls … 

  • The age group you’re in depends on how old you’re turning that year. So players turning 6 in 2021 will be in the under 6's and so on. 

  • Game styles and rules have been modified to suit each age group … under 5's to under 7's is purely non-contact (no tackle).

  •  Games are on Saturday mornings for the under 5's to under 9's (the odd Sunday game) and either Friday evenings or Sunday for under 10's and up.

  • The season finishes at the end of August with no games during school holidays.

  • Your registration fee covers gear, insurances, coaching, competition administration fees and individual player participation fees from Rugby Australia.

  • Each team has a dedicated manager who is one of the team parents. The team manager will communicate important information to you each week including game details etc. They're there to help you with any questions you might have throughout the season.  We would LOVE for you to be involved! 




How do I get a NSW Active Kids Voucher to save $100?

1. Go to https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/active-kids… this is a NSW Government Services portal for all things government.

2. If you have an account then Log In or setup a new account if you’ve never had one.

3. Search for “Active Kids” and follow the prompts to apply. It’s too easy! You will need your Medicare card details for each player you are applying for.

4. Record the voucher number (Service NSW will send you an email with the details too)

5. Then click on the appropriate “Join Today” button above for the player you are registering. When prompted please enter your voucher number.


Can I register first and then get my Active Kids Voucher later?

No. You must have an Active Kids Voucher BEFORE registering your child.  Please have all details with you when going through the registration process as the voucher cannot be applied afterwards.


How do age groupings work?

The age group you’re in depends on your age at the start of the year. For example players turning 6 in 2021 will be in the under 6's etc. 


Are all kids in the same team the same age?

Generally they are. In certain exceptional cases a player might be a year younger than everyone else in the team. For example, you might have an under 9's team where one of the players in the team actually qualifies for the under 8's age group and should technically be in a team in the under 8's. The practice isn’t recommended but it does occur occasionally,  particularly when a player has joined the club very young and plays with the same team as they progresses through the years.


Do I select my child's age or the team's age group when registering?

If your child will be playing “up” in an age group above his or her actual age then select the age group for the team they’ll be a part of. For example an under 7 player who will play in an under 8 team should be registered as an under 8 player.


My child wants to play in a higher age group with school friends?

As a club we discourage this practice due to the potential safety risks of playing against opponents who are a year older. The style of game that each age group plays is tailored to the skills and abilities of that specific age group and from a duty of care perspective, we prefer if players play in their own age group. However, there are exceptions to this rule and requests are assessed individually by the appropriate Vice President and a decision made.


Can I pay the fees in cash or by direct deposit?

No, unfortunately we cannot accept payments in cash or by direct transfer. You can pay via credit card when you register on the web.


Is medical insurance included?

Yes. A portion of your registration fee is used to pay for the ARU Insurance Plan. This plan covers all registered players for injuries whilst engaging in rugby for the club; whether it be at training, during a game or overseas or interstate on a club tour.

The insurance coverage is for medical expenses that are not in any way covered by Medicare and after reimbursement from your private health fund. Examples of items covered include; physiotherapy, dental, hire of artificial aids such as splints and crutches, etc. As a club we recommend all players have private health insurance as well.


I tried registering but I need help?
