You may have Representative players in your Team but the following rules apply:

  • The total number of Rep players in a Team is 2
  • If a team wishes to play with 3 Rep players they will need to enter the competition 1 school grade higher
  • If a team wishes to play with 4 or more Rep players they will need to enter the competition 2 school grades higher.
    • Example 1: A Team of grade 4 players enters the Grade 4 competition , they have 2 Rep players- This is the correct competition for them (No other rep players of any grade allowed)
    • Example 2: A Team of grade 4 players would like to enter, they have 3 Rep players therefore will need to enter the grade 5 Competition(No other Rep players of any grade allowed)
    • Example 3: A Team of grade 4 players would like to enter, they have 4 Rep players therefore they will need to enter the grade 6 Competition.
  • If the Representative player on your team is unable to play, you cannot use another Representative player from other teams as a substitute

When the rep players in the team are of different school grades we apply a point system with the total points allowed for a team = 6. All rep players are considered as equal for this system however we will place a team in an appropriate division taking into consideration the level of the rep players and the competition that they have entered.

rep player playing in their school grade = 3 points

rep player playing up one school grade = 2 points

rep player playing up two school grades= 1 point

development player playing in their school grade = 1.5 points

development player playing up one school grade = 1 point

development player playing up 2 grades is not counted in the calculation.

All players must be registered with BNSW for insurance purposes. Please do not register until your team’s spot has been confirmed for the current season. Registration lasts for 365 days from date of online payment. The fees in 2023 are:
