First Access: Subsidised Junior Registrations Open for 2024 CBDJRL Season

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs is pleased to officially open the 2024 Canterbury-Bankstown District Junior Rugby League (CBDJRL) Season registration period, with eligible families able to save up to $100 per child* on registration fees.

As announced by the Club last month, a new registration grant subsidy funded by Canterbury League Club offers up to $100 per child, for children who meet the age criteria ranging from Under 5s to Under 13s within the CBDJRL.

The grant seeks to help reduce overhead costs for families and encourage thousands of kids to participate in grassroots rugby league in the local area.

The CBDJRL covers an expansive area, spanning from Moorebank to Clemton Park in the West, and from Chester Hill and Berala in the North to the Georges River in the South. Established in 1921, the CBDJRL has seen 102 seasons of rugby league and has, since 2010, comprised 12 clubs including the Bankstown Bulls, Bankstown Sports, Berala Bears, Chester Hill Hornets, East Hills, Greenacre Tigers, Milperra Colts, Moorebank Rams, Revesby Heights Rhinos, St George Dragons, St Christophers and St Johns Eagles.

In 2023, these clubs collectively engaged more than 3,500 participants across 204 teams, ranging from Under 5s to Under 12s (boys and girls), and Under 13s to men's and women's open teams across both tackle and tag competitions. The area's rich cultural diversity brings together players from various backgrounds and religions, uniting them under the sport's banner. 

In 2024, the Bulldogs together with the collective CBDJRL clubs hope to see numbers in participation soar. CEO Aaron Warburton said the registration subsidy was as much about helping support local families as it was helping to grow the game at a grassroots level:

"We want families in our local area to be able to access and enjoy the game, and the inherent sense of community that comes with it. This initiative aligns perfectly with our traditional family values and community-centric identity, and we can’t wait to see more kids taking up the sport through this registration subsidy.” 

CBDJRL club's will officially begin to open their registration period as of today, December 1, 2023.
