Rugby Union

Welcome to Bishop Druitt College Rugby. Rugby at BDC is played from a grassroots level to having players selected to play for the Australian Schoolboys Barbarians team.

Our primary-age players play in the local Coffs Harbour Juniors competition on Friday nights, as well as against visiting schools.  Our secondary teams are formed to play against touring teams and also take part in MNCRU competitions.

 Win, lose or draw, BDC teams play in the ‘spirit of rugby’.

Any players wishing to join a BDC Primary team must take the red link below and submit the registration form. These forms can also be found in Parent Lounge. Once this form has been completed and submitted you will be invited into the rugby activity under 'Tours and excursions' in your Parent Lounge, where you can give permission and pay the annual resource fee ($50.00).

Once this has been completed, players will be placed in a team and receive their playing jersey. These jerseys are to be returned at the end of the season or a $40.00 replacement fee will be incurred. BDC red rugby shorts and socks can be purchased from the BDC uniform shop.

Coaches and Managers

We would like to thank our parents who volunteer to coach and manage teams each week. If you are helping with a team or would like to assist please ensure that the college has a valid copy of your Working with Children Check. These can be completed online via the blue link below. The minimum coaching requirement is a Coaching Kid’s Rugby certificate. Please take the red link below for more information.
