This page is for all of the key information you might want for this season for the Juniors. We’ll update as more information comes to hand.

We will update with 2024 season information as details come to hand – so please check back again.

How do I register?

Help us out by registering as soon as you can, so we can organise teams and uniforms. Rates increase over time. If you’re experiencing financial difficulties, reach out to President@bungendoretigers.com.au to discuss alternative options.

For details on how to register – visit https://www.bungendoretigers.com.au/index.php/registration/ Some age groups may combine if they have low registration numbers. 

We are now again able to accept the new 2024 NSW ActiveKids vouchers. You can use these during the online registration process, or please get in touch with us to discuss alternatives in the interim. 

Age Groups Already Closed for 2024

The following age groups are currently closed to registrations as they have reached their upper maximum cap, but expressions of interest are still available by following the above link, which may lead us to form an additional team in the age group or we can help you find another Club/team in some cases.

  • U9 Tackle
  • U10 Tackle

Age Groups Not Offered in 2024

Following a review of resgistrations and interest expressed, the following age groups are not being fielded in 2024: 

  • U12 Tackle (eligible players are being moved down to U11. Eligible boys can move up to U13, whereas Girls could move to U12-Girls League Tag)
  • U10 Girls League Tag (eligible players can request to be moved up to U12-GLT)
  • U14 & U16 Girls League Tag. Older players could consider Bungendore Tigerettes. Other clubs may have positions in GLT and/or Tackle. 
  • U14+ Tackle

Season Dates and Draw

The 2024 juniors season is scheduled to start on Sunday 5 May 2024 (Friday 3 May for U16+) with 14 rounds planned (the draft season planner is available by clicking here).

Once developed, visit the Fixtures page to see the available draws, don’t forget they can change up until the Saturday (or day before games).

Coaches, Teams and Training

Each team requires the following to be able to play in the season.  All of these volunteers will require a NSW Working With Children Check (WWCC) (or ACT equivalent), which will be verified by the Club at various times during a season. 

  1. Coach
  2. Manager
  3. LeagueSafe
  4. First Aid/Sports Trainer
  5. Ground/Field Manager

If these mandatory positions are not filled with the team’s parents/families, it is highly likely your team will have to forfeit games until volunteers are trained and available. Don’t wait until season start – offer to help now so we can get you trained and ready. Get in touch to find out more or if you can help – Info@bungendoretigers.com.au

This season, each team will require each position above filled in order to play the regular season (we will no longer provide Trainers to cover multiple games). If you don’t have these positions, teams will be de-registered or forced to forfeit until qualified members are available.

As we lock in teams and volunteers, we will be able to commence training for registered players only. You cannot train if not registered fully, as you are not insured. Please don’t delay to register, you may miss out as age groups close, and it makes it really hard to organise teams. 

Depending on Coach preference and availability, our teams train on Tuesday and/or Thursday afternoons between 330pm and 6pm. Younger age groups will only usually train once per week, whereas our older age groups may train twice a week.

The following days/times have been confirmed so far (noting some team lists are being finalised with new regos):

  • Munchkins: TBC (likely 1 May 2024)
  • U6 Black & U6 Orange: TBC
  • U7 Black & U7 Orange: TBC
  • U8 Orange & U8 Black: Thursdays 430pm (already commenced)
  • U9: TBC
  • U10: Tuesdays & Thursdays 430pm (already commenced)
  • U11: Tuesdays & Thursdays 430-530pm (already commenced)
  • U12-GLT: Thursdays 430-530pm (commences 2 May); additional pre-season on Tuesday 30 April 430-530pm
  • U13: Tuesdays & Thursdays 5-6pm (already commenced)

Helpers

All families are expected to contribute in some way during the season. Depending on the draw, we will need a lot of volunteers this season. No volunteers = no games (you will be forfeited). If you can help – be it team volunteers, set-up and/or pack-up, BBQ, canteen, other – get in touch info@bunendoretigers.com.au 

Playing Kit & Merchandise

New kit will be provided in 2024, which the players will be able to retain. Any replacements during the season are charged at cost price and of very limited availability to lead time.

Merch is available from the online store at several times in the season, see details at – https://www.bungendoretigers.com.au/index.php/merchandise/ (we will advertise across web and socials when it is open)

How do I get Information?

As we get closer to the season start, team managers (and coaches) will generally do most of the communications with the parents/guardians of the team. They may do this through email, SMS, certain apps etc. but they will let you know. Important information from NSWRL, Canberra Region Rugby League (CRRL), or the Committee usually comes from the Secretary to the team managers to distribute as required. Key information that impacts multiple teams will still be shared across the website and our socials (Facebook and Instagram mainly) when we can – particularly if training grounds close from wet weather or a round is washed out. Don’t forget you can subscribe to receive email updates on our website. Please note, to minimise ‘spam’ we do not send out whole of Club emails or SMS in most cases – instead relying on the teams’ communications. We recommend you follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and subscribe for website newsletter updates to stay updated. 

Photo Day

Photo day is 30 May 2024 with multiple days available in Bungendore that week for make-up sessions.

Behaviour and Conduct

A reminder that our players and spectators are required to conduct themselves appropriately before/during/after a match. Players face judiciary action potentially including suspension for breach of code of conduct and/or Safeplay. Spectators are also required to conduct themselves appropriately, abuse of players, officials and especially referees will not be tolerated – and you could face season or life time bans from CRRL/NSWRL/NRL games. The Club is required to assist in identifying any parties involved in poor conduct, with the team and/or Club penalised by match forfeit, points loss, or suspension until resolved. Continued poor player may invoke de-registration from the Club.  

Sponsorship

Email sponsorship@bungendoretigers.com.au for an information pack, or to register interest. Please note, 2024 Sponsorships have now closed as printing production has already commenced.
