18 Month Registration 

Eligibility

In each Football Year (the period commencing on 1 October in any given year and concluding on 30 September of the subsequent year), players will be classified as Junior players or Senior players. Unless otherwise determined a Junior player covers six (6) years to eighteen (18) years inclusive. A Senior player covers nineteen (19) years and above.

All Junior players that are born in the second half of the calendar year (July 1 – 31 December) are eligible to apply for the 18-Month Registration Window. Only Senior players who attain the age of nineteen (19) years during a Football Year and are born in the second half of the calendar year (July 1 – 31 December) shall be eligible to apply for the 18-Month Registration Window.

Junior Representative players shall not be eligible to apply for the 18-Month Registration Window for a period of two (2) Football Years after which they were selected as a Junior Representative player. A Junior Representative player as defined in these rules is a player who has played in any Development Squad, Local League or School District representative Rugby League.

Please note, this policy is aimed at improving the Rugby League experience for players who fit the following criteria. Please carefully consider your child’s circumstances before applying to play under this policy.

Successful applicants of the 18-Month Registration provision will forfeit the following:

  • Consideration for Junior Representative teams outside their calendar group
  • Eligibility for ‘portability’ clearance to transfer to another competition
  • Eligibility in a Restricted Weight Division outside their calendar group
  • The right to participate in their calendar group unless under special circumstances (e.g. a team would forfeit without their involvement)

Considerations when identifying players eligible to apply for 18-month registration include, but are not limited to:

  • Weight and/or height of participants and those who are deemed above the 85th percentile for their calendar grouping may be ineligible to apply for this policy.
  • Differences in physical, mental or emotional maturity relative to remainder of calendar group
  • Feeling overly challenged in their calendar age group
  • Unavailability of the applicant’s calendar group
  • New participant to the game of Rugby League
  • Additional provisions may be provided in extenuating circumstances (including but not limited to medical reasons)

A comprehensive list of all successful applicants will be sent to all participating clubs prior to the commencement of the season and is subject for review until the completion of Round 4.

Should any situation or matter arise, not covered by these rules, the matter shall be referred to the Local League, State League or NRL for decision, which will be final.
