Club Subscriptions / Rugby Connect Registration

All players must play be registered with the club in order to play or train. The final date for subscriptions for the 2020/2021 season is 25 November 2020. After this date if you are not a registered member then you will no longer be eligible to train or play in the club.

For the 2020/2021 the preferred way to pay your subscription is to register on the new IRFU Rugby Connect Portal and pay the subscription at the same time. This serves two purposes, it pays your club subscription and registers you with Rugby Connect. All players will need to register on Rugby Connect for the 20/21 season before we start playing games. The link to register is:

A couple of tips:

  • It is best to use a PC or an iPad/Tablet to register, rather than your phone
  • Have a headshot photo of your son and a photo or scan of his birth cert or passport available in advance 

Steps to register:

  1. Choose the membership category that suits you e.g. “Youth/Mini 1 Child” and click Register
  2. Fill out the details to create your SportLomo account and click Register 
  3. Confirm the right package is selected and click Continue
  4. Fill out all the registration details and upload the photo and the scan of the passport / birth cert and click Register
  5. Fill out the Payment Details 

Note: If you have already paid your club subscription the normal way via the old MemberGrip system or in person at the club then you can register for Rugby Connect by selecting one of the paid membership categories e.g. Mini/Youth (Sub Paid Season 20/21) in Step 1. You will not be charged again if you select this option.

If you are experiencing any difficulty with the above, please contact Kelley Rossi ( with your details along with the required documentation.

Safe Rugby:

We strongly encourage all coaches, players and parents to have a better understanding of concussion.  Concussion can pose a significant risk to the well being of players if not managed effectively.  Please use the following link  to the IRFU website and fimilarise yourself with the signs, symptoms and management of concussion.  I would ask that you share Junior Player video with your child to ensure that they too understand concussion.

Code of Ethics: 
Parents please read, discuss with your child & abide by the clubs code of ethics – See this link

Please get involved. Positive encouragement for all the children is vital, most players want to impress their parents, so please try to impress the children. Never be negative.

NOTE: If any parent/guardian has an issue or observation regarding their child please bring notice immediately to a coach.
