The process of Registration, Insurance and MyRugbyAdmin are interlinked.
All Participants (Players, Coaches, Match Officials, Club Volunteers/Officials, etc) must be registered with the ARU in order to obtain coverage under the ARU National Insurance Scheme.
The following is an outline of the essential requirements of ARU registration:
It is the club's responsibility to ensure the original hard copies or scanned copies of all ARU Registration Forms are stored securely for seven (7) years.
Registration deadlines are the responsibility of Competition Manager &/or State/Territory Union and should be outlined in local Competition Rules.
For the purpose of attaining participation figures, the ARU will set a deadline for when MyRugbyAdmin registration information is to be finalised. Each State/Territory Union will be advised of registration deadline annually.
There may be practical reasons for players to change clubs. For example, players may trial with one club but end up playing for another in the actual competition or change clubs and unions due to relocation of work.
It is a directive from the Australian Rugby Union, that any player wishing to transfer between unions/zones must complete the attached ARU Domestic Transfer Application (see below) prior to registering with a new union. All clubs, players, affiliate bodies and relevant staff should be made aware of this directive.
This will greatly assist in the tracking of players within Australia, along with preventing suspended players from simply switching unions to continue playing.

Club to Club transfers - Please note that this will not effect club to club transfers within a Union, as these will still be governed by local competition rules.
For more information contact your local Competition Manager or State/Territory Union.
