Code of Conduct, Participation Agreement & Registration Form

Clubs should take note of the wording of the Union’s Code of Conduct and Participation Agreement as it refers to the Union’s Amateur Status.

Clubs should also take note of the officials required to sign the Code and Agreement PRIOR to any club being graded in a NSWSRU competition.

Players should take note of the wording of the player registration form and the questions therein, as previous rugby experience may disqualify them from Suburban competitions.
