St George Fee Rebate accepted UNTIL END APRIL
*PLEASE NOTE: For St George rebate and Getting Started vouchers, you cannot use these ONLINE to reduce your fees. Every player MUST register and pay online their base insurance and association fees. ARU has mandated this. So the club has set up products in Rugby Link to ensure these base costs are covered. Thus:
(a) The GS voucher product is full fee minus the $150.
(b) The payment plan is the deposit made up of those base fees. You can also make regular payments on Rugby Link online or you can pay cash or instalments at the club via consultation with the Treasurer. If you pay a deposit that is your commitment you will pay the remainder and thus if you cancel, your deposit will not be refunded. However, in exceptional circumstances it can be credited to next season. WE GIVE PAYMENT PLANS IN GOOD FAITH TO HELP FAMILIES PAY FEES. HOWEVER, YOUR CHILD CANNOT PLAY IN MATCHES UNTIL FEES ARE FULLY PAID.
(c) St George rebate is given to your St George account via the account number you place in the form, it is NOT DEDUCTED AUTOMATICALLY.
(d) If trying to obtain all discounts, the club is unable to create a product where those can all be accounted and there still be enough for the base costs, so where you are due a difference, the club will refund those discounts unable to be covered online.
PLEASE NOTE THERE IS A PROCESSING FEE ON RUGBY LINK THAT IS SET BY THE PAYMENT PROVIDER. This will be different each time you make a payment and will be charged each time you use Rugby Link. IT CANNOT BE REFUNDED.
