2023 Registration Fees for Minis & Junior Players
For 2023 there have been a couple of changes to how fees and the players age groups are calculated. The Age group that the player will be playing in is based on the players age at the beginning of the year i.e. 01/01/2023.
Our fees for the 2023 season are set as follows:
|Age Group||Registration Fee 2023|
|U6s – U7s||$100.00|
|U8s – U9s||$150.00|
|U10s – U18s (All juniors)||$200.00|
Included in your registration
- All registrations now include a Team Photo for each player
- All new minis and Juniors players to the Club will receive a Welcome to Wakehurst pack that includes Wakehurst rugby club shorts, socks, caps & drink bottles.
BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS … The NSW Government are giving a $100 Voucher to each child who participates in an approved activity
Once again in 2023 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 2023 season becomes:
|Age||2023 Fees||Fee after Active Kids Voucher|
|U6s & U7s||$100.00||$0.00|
|U8s & U9s||$150.00||$50.00|
|U10s – U18s||$200.00||$100.00|

This year as well as your kids, we need you!
As you know our club is run entirely by volunteers and in reality it is only a few people that keep this together and we know that with more support we can be bigger and better.
There are a number of urgent roles we need to fill in the club. So if you or someone you know has time, skills or money to donate there are a range of options for you!
We have some urgent volunteer roles we need to fill asap. Some of them would suit two or more people working together:
- Technology Manager
- U6 & U7 Coach(s)
- Girls 7s coach
This year we have introduced a series of working groups to help run the club and we are looking for helpers to do “Just one thing”.
The time you will need to donate will depend on the role but it can be as little as a few hours over the season to couple hours a week. so please if you have time put your hand up and we can find something for you to do!
The working groups are: –
- Club house
- Technology – facebook, wordpress, etc
- Marketing / Social and Fundraising / Sponsorship
- Government Grants
- Touch 7s
Please contact David Casey our Club Secretary regarding volunteering positions: firstname.lastname@example.org
