All Rugby clubs are responsible for the registration of their players and non-playing members, which is a necessity for coverage under the ARU National Insurance Scheme.
In 2017, Clubs and Associations Online Self-Registration is mandatory. In exceptional circumstances where players cannot register online, Clubs are required to input player data into Rugby Link. To do so a Participant (or their parent/guardian, if under 18 years of age) must register with the ARU on the prescribed ARU Registration Form and agree to accept and abide by all of the Terms of Registration as outlined on the form.
Online payment via Rugby Link is the recommended option, however Clubs and Associations can also accept offline payments if they chose. For offline payment Clubs/Rugby Bodies/Entity Teams will be liable for collecting and settling all applicable fees and levies in connection with such registration.
Changes to Insurance levies and National Participation registration fees
