 Vaccination Pass

Please be aware that;

Last time I looked in sporty registration site a vaccination pass was required to play. Players can upload their vaccine pass into Sporty when they register.  I have also noted that some have completed their registration without a vaccine pass and they successfully completed the registration process.


All players are to register online using the Rugby Registration tab on this site.


Registrations need to be completed online by ASAP

You cannot submit the form until all questions are completed. You cannot play until you complete your registration. If you have any trouble completing the form, please see Mrs Yates in the Sports Office or catch Mr Graham at morning tea/lunch.

Code of Conduct:

Players are to adhere to school rules and regulations.

Players are to travel in the CORRECT FULL school uniform to and from the sports Exchange. No exceptions.

Subscription Fees

Once you have submitted your registration form, you must pay your subscription fee.  This can be paid either online into the school account or to Student Services where you can pay with cash, eftpos or automatic payment (you will need to get a form to set up this option).  

Fees pay for affiliation to TRFU, uniform replacement, equipment and administration. 

Subscription fees are due before the first game is played.  We have a no pay, no play policy.  Uniforms will not be issued to any player until her fees are paid.

Fees for 2022 are:

  • All Players $65.00

  • Plus $40 uniform bond if applicable - please read below to see if your child is required to pay this.

School Bank Account:  15 3953 0478234 00                                                                                                                                                                             

Particulars:  Player initials and Surname     Reference:  RUGBY​​​​​​​

Uniform Bond

Every student new to the school must pay a $40 uniform bond.  The bond is a one off payment to cover your daughter for every sport that she participates in during her time at the school.  

Provided that all issued uniform is returned at the end of the season, this bond will be returned when the student leaves the school. 

If you paid a uniform bond last year you need not pay again unless your bond was forfeited.  You would have been advised if this occurred. 

If your bond was forfeited, please pay again.  Uniform will not be issued until this bond is paid.

Parent / Sibling Coaches

A player whose parent or sibling coaches their team will not be required to pay a subscription.  This is to acknowlege the hard work and commitment that a coach puts into a season of sports.  If two parents coach, then half a sub will be charged for their daughters.

Uniform and Equipment

  • Players will be issued with a NPGHS Jersey on game day, handed in at the end of the game.

  • Players will need their OWN Dark Blue Rugby shorts and Rugby Socks – available at Canterbury Shop/ Rebel Sports.

  • Boots

  • Mouthguard x2

  • HairTies

  • Drink Bottles on game day.

Coaches and Managers

​​​​​​​WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!

We need a  Female manager for the U16s – you will need to be available for game day, to go into changing rooms when and if required, all round helper to the girls.
