Club Fees


Try before you buy:f you are uncertain about your child’s interest/commitment you can purchase a “training-only” registration with Eltham Junior Rugby Football Club, as this covers insurance to participate in training sessions and only has an online cost of $15. This is deducted from a full registration which must be purchased on the Rugby Xplorer App before your child plays a game.

Senior players also have a “training only” option that is $25 online through Rugby Xplorer.



ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FEES:



These playing fees include Rugby Australia and Rugby Victoria Membership plus limited player insurance and legal cover. Rugby Australia also offers an expensive system for staggered registration payments and weekly or monthly registrations. These options are very costly and are not recommended. Playing fee discounts apply to coaches, siblings and in verified cases of financial hardship


KIT: Eltham Rugby provides each fully registered player with club shorts, socks and access to a club team shirt. At the end of the season the club provides each junior player with a team photograph at a team award presentation event. Please note that on top of annual fees you will need to buy a mouth guard (dentist fitted ones recommended) and suitable footwear for training and matches.


AGE ID JUNIORS: Each junior player’s team manager will need to sight the ID page of a passport or birth certificate to verify the players date of birth. To avoid loss of such important items you can alternatively scan and send an ID document to me at membership@elthamrugby.com.au


SENIORS 2021: Eltham Rugby participates in the Victorian Premiership (2018, 2019 Premiers!) We have a proud history of supporting 2 senior XV’s. New players all ability levels always welcome.


JUNIOR GRADING: Pathways (5-10 years) and Juniors (11-17 years) play modified rules that are age appropriate to progress to the adult XV contact game.

Middle age-range juniors are also graded for teams by weight as per 2019 competition rules, for more details read here


FEMALE PLAYERS: girls are very welcome to participate in our junior program and we have ambition to host a girls only team (U11 to U15). We also host 7s Touch Rugby through the summer that is popular with all genders and ages.


JUNIOR TEAM VOLUNTEERS: Are required to register on Rugby Xplorer for insurance and legal liability purposes and must enter details of their Victorian Working with Children Police Checks. This check is free, and the form is completed online (here), printed, and then taken to your most convenient post office.


Eltham Rugby is committed to enhancing the skills of all participants, and on request may finance members to attend relevant courses; for example referee courses, first aid, responsible service of alcohol and coaching - For more information click here
