During the season your team is eligible to bring in fill in players if you are short. This temporary registration will last for 1 week and costs $10. Please note that you can bring in a player who is not registered with our organisation – they must fill out the registration form and show the receipt to the court controller. The player must be the correct age or one age group lower.

If the player is already playing in the RBRA competition, they are able to fill in without completing the registration form. Although this player can NOT be from the same age group, they must be from the Age Group below and ‘Play up’.
