About Online Rugby Registration

New Zealand Rugby now captures registrations from the new sporty system. Your rugby club or school can adopt the online rugby registration process if authorized by your Provincial Union.

The online rugby registration process means that rugby players, referees, administrators and now coaches in your club or school will be able to register to New Zealand Rugby online via Sporty.co.nz instead of completing the paper NZR form.

When your members register online, their registration details are automatically sent to the NZR National Rugby Database ready for your selected club or school administrator to approve.

Registrations can be approved by either logging into the NZR National Rugby Database or by logging into the membership management area of Sporty.co.nz.


Register online:

It is compulsory to register online before attending one of the 2019 Rugby Smart, Teenage and/or Small Black courses.

This year if you are coaching at U13 and above there are two parts: 1. Online course and 2. Practical session, both of which are compulsory to complete.

This must be done prior to attending the practical RugbySmart, Teenage or Small Blacks session.

If you coached in 2018 you will receive an email from your club or school to re-register for the 2019. If you haven’t received this email you can click on the link below to register.

Club Rugby Coaches/Rippa Rugby Players/Referees/Junior Players/Senior Players can register now by clicking on there club link below:

Rugby Coach Registration

RUGBY SMART FOR COACHES AND REFEREES
In order to complete a referee or coach registration, both referees and coaches who coach/ref players 13 years and older must now complete an online Rugby Smart module and you must also attend a practical Rugby Smart session.

After you register online for rugby, you will be asked to complete the Rugby Smart online module. Just follow your nose and before you know it – all the online bits will be done.

AND… don’t forget to attend the practical session
