Touch 7's Tournament - February 2018

For those wondering, Touch 7's is the new name for the former VIVA7's program.  Name change just prior to Christmas.  That's about all the changes - all else remains the same.

Online Registration and Payment is NOW OPEN for the Touch 7's Tournament, commencing on Thursday 1 February.  For more details and the Link go the Touch 7's portal page.



Unfortunately, the Club has received advice that ALL registrations for the 2018 Season will need to be completed by the individual player/parent ONLINE ONLY using the Rugby Link system.  Online Registrations for the 2018 Season are NOW OPEN.  

Please also note that whilst the Online Registrations are open, you are not able to utilise the NSW Government's Active Kids Rebate Voucher until that system is live (currently forecasted to be 31 Jan 2018).  If you want to use that voucher to register your children, then please wait until it is available and you have registered for it.

FURTHER, the payment of the applicable player registration fee will also need to be made online at the same time using a debit/credit card ONLY.  As we are utilising a Rugby Australia registration system, there are no alternate payment options.  The Club cannot receive Cash or Bank Transfers for your registrations in 2018, but we can certainly make time to be available to assist you with the online registration and payment process.

If you have any questions regarding Age Groups or the Registration process, drop Sam Pethybridge (Club Registrar) an email - registrar@hillsrugby.com.au - or call her on 0419 900 239.

The 2018 Season pricing is:
  • Under 6/7 - $100.00 per player
  • Under 8/9 - $145.00 per player
  • Under 10-17 - $175 per player
  • Sibling Discount of $20 per subsequent player after the first.
** FIRST 50 PLAYERS IN THE U6 AGE GROUP TO REGISTER PLAY FOR FREE! - **  Please note you will need to make contact with Sam Pethybridge to arrange registration for the U6 Playing Group in 2018.


"Hills Rugby...developing kids, teams and community"

The Junior club is one of the biggest in Sydney. 

Mini's (u6-u9) play Walla tag and Mini's rugby on Saturday mornings among Parramatta, Eastwood and Penrith District Clubs. 

Juniors (u10-u18) play in the Sydney wide graded competition on Sundays. The club fields teams in most but not all age groups.
