REGISTRATIONS OPEN FOR 2021!
~ The NRL released a new registration system in 2020. You DO NOT need individual log ins for each of your family members – you are welcome to use a single email address for your family to simplify registration. Anyone linked to your same email address in the “old” system should be available for you to re-register to Play, Coach, Train, or Volunteer. If you haven’t created an NRL account yet, this can be done by clicking SIGN UP on the Log In screen as you start your registration at PlayRugbyLeague.com.
~ Junior Transfers/Clearances: The TDJRL has a rule in place where new and transferring players cannot be formally accepted for the 2021 season until 30th January 2021. Most clearances are a simple process but there are some reasons for clearance denial. These include, but are not limited to:
- Fees still owed at previous club
- Player meets “representative” status per QRL rules (there are rules in place limiting transfer of representative players)
- We reach our maximum number of clearances per age group (limits set by QRL rules)
- Teams reach capacity
If we cannot accept your child’s registration, we will endeavour to let you know as early as possible.
~ MAKE SURE TO REGISTER AS THE CORRECT MEMBER TYPE! If filling more than one role, you will need to register as each Member Type. For example, if you will be coaching one team and running as LeagueSafe in another you need register as a Coach and a Trainer
– Player LeagueTag (U6 age group ONLY)
– Player Tackle (U7 to Seniors)
– Trainer (LeagueSafe, League First Aid, Sports Trainer)
– Volunteer (Team Manager and other important roles EXCLUDING Coach and Trainer)
~ SIZES FOR PLAYER GEAR – Please select sizes for the Player’s Polo, Training Tee, Playing Shorts and Playing Socks while registering. This will just collect the sizes and will NOT make payment compulsory to complete registration. If you are not paying your fees at time of registration, you unfortunately cannot select the Maroons pack.
~ PAYMENT OF PLAYER FEES – We have our fees set up so you don’t have to pay at time of registration HOWEVER, if you select a Maroons pack you will be required to pay to complete the registration. In these cases, failure to pay at time of registration will mean your registration was not completed. You can find more information below about payment options.
~ There are 2 places that say “Complete Registration” in the form, so don’t be fooled by the first one! The last page will require you to click that you accept the terms and conditions of participating then either pay online by credit card or “Complete Registration”.
~ CHECK IF YOUR REGISTRATION WAS SUCCESSFUL – Log in to your NRL account at PlayRugbyLeague.com, click the menu button (top left hand corner) and select REGISTRATION HISTORY. Choose one of the members linked to your profile from the drop-down box and it will display their season history below. If there isn’t a record for 2021, then the member is NOT registered.

**HANDY HINTS TO MAKE REGISTRATION EASIER**
~ You DO NOT need individual log ins for each of your family members – you are welcome to use a single email address for your family to simplify registration. Anyone linked to your same email address in the “old” system (if not registered since pre-2020 season) should be available for you to re-register to Play, Coach, Train, or Volunteer in 2021.
~ Family members missing from your new NRL account? Try using the “Add a New Participant” function during registration – enter the person’s details as per their ID and search. Follow the prompts to verify and link them to your account. If a match isn’t found, DON’T complete the registration. Contact Jaime (Brothers Football Admin) HERE and advise: player name, date of birth, and correct email address so a duplicate isn’t created.
~ Unsure if the registration was successful? You can check by: while logged in to your account at PlayRugbyLeague.com, click on the menu button and select REGISTRATION HISTORY. From this page you can individually select each member and see where they’ve been registered and in which season.
