Parents are asked to register for a volunteer role. Parents who do not wish to volunteer may make a small monetary contribution to help cover the costs of the program.
The Club’s online registration system provides tax receipts for the federal Children’s Fitness tax credit (see here for details).
The remainder of paid dues may be refunded to players who suffer season ending injuries that are documented by the medical opinion of a physician licensed to practice medicine in the province of British Columbia. Such refunds will be issued on a pro-rated basis according to the number of full games remaining in the regular league season at the time the injury occurred as against the total number of league games in the season. Application for a refund of dues on the ground of season ending injury must be made in writing and delivered to the Treasurer of the Burnaby Lake Rugby Union Football Club.
- No refunds will be issued for voluntary withdrawal after the player has participated in a league game.
- No refunds will be issued for games missed due to non-season ending injuries.
- No refunds will be issued for games not played due to cancellation.
Burnaby Lake Rugby Club has partnered with ITSportsNet to provide online registration to its members. Online registration lets the Club’s volunteers spend more time on rugby and less time on paperwork. The online registration system is hosted on ITSportsNet’s secure server, which means that your personal information will stay private and you are safe paying by credit card.
Before you start registering online, you should read and print the instructions below to guide you through the online registration process.
To access the online registration system, click this link.
Following the link above will take you to an “ITMembersArea” page that asks for an Email and Password. If you have not already created a password, click the Don’t have a login? (SETUP LOGIN) link in the left panel. Fill out the form that appears with your personal information, then check your email inbox for a confirmation of your login and password.
After you have created a login, use your login information to enter the ITMembersArea. Logging in will take you to the online registration home page. The panel on the left of that page will have three links: Home, Profile and Registration. Starting from that page, follow the steps below to register online.
- edit profile,
- invoice history,
- edit password, and
- add/edit family.
Next, click the edit profile link. On the screen that appears, click the Edit Personal Contact Information link, then add your personal information (not your child’s).
Next, click the add/edit family link. If you have not already created a family, the system will ask you to create a family. Don’t worry if your family has a common last name – the system identifies families by name and address. On the screen that appears next, add information for the family members you intend to register for rugby. If your child is too young to have email, you can enter your own email address.
If you have already created a family, you can click the add more family members link, and then enter the name(s), birth date(s) and email address(es) of any more children you wish to register.
When you have finished, click the Continue with Registration link to proceed.
As stated at the top of the page, the First and Last Name cannot be edited. If you need to change these, please contact the Club registrar.
Click the Registration link in the left hand panel. This will cause three links to appear below the Registration link:
- Burnaby Lake Rugby Club – Senior Registration – 20XX/20YY Season
- Burnaby Lake Rugby Club – Age Grade Registration – 20XX/20YY Season
- Burnaby Lake Rugby Club – Mini-rugby Registration – 20XX/20YY Season
Click the link that matches the type of rugby you want to register for. Mini-rugby Registration is for players born in 1997 to 2005. Age Grade Registration is for players born in 1991 to 1996.
The first time that you open a registration link, you will see on the screen that appears a create new registration link. Clicking this link will bring up a waiver. Take the time to read and understand the waiver, then click the I have read this waiver and accept its terms link at the bottom of the page to continue.
If you are not opening a registration link for the first time, you will see on the screen an add/edit registration. Clicking this link brings up a screen …
The next screen that appears is titled “Parent Info”. From the “Choose Family Member” drop-down box, select yourself as the parent who is registering. The personal information you entered when creating your profile at step 1 should appear automatically. If you wish, you can add another parent. Click the Done button to proceed.
The Club is able to provide a great experience for its members only because of volunteer contributions. This screen prompts you to choose a volunteer role that suits you. Since all parents are required to choose a volunteer role, it is likely that you will end up sharing the responsibilities of the role you choose. Like many other community sports organizations, those who do not volunteer pay a small additional fee.
After you have chosen a volunteer option, click the Done button to proceed to the next step.
From the “Choose Family Member” drop down box, choose the child you wish to register. The personal information you entered when creating your profile at step 1 should appear automatically. You will need to specify your child’s gender before you can proceed.
When you have selected the child you wish to register and all of the required information is filled in, click the Done button to proceed.
If you wish to register another child in this session, click the Child Info link at the top of the page to return to this page to enter that child’s personal information.
Choose the child you wish to register from the “Choose Family Member” drop-down box, and the appropriate fee from the “Fee Type” drop-down box. Click the Done button to proceed.
Check the registration information displayed and make sure that it reflects your registration preferences. If you wish to change either your volunteer role or fee type, click the remove link to the right of the volunteer role or fee type. Doing this takes you to a registration progress screen, where you can resume registration at the stage of the option you wish to change. Note that if you remove the volunteer role, you must go back to the “Parent Info” page.
If you wish to register another child, click the ADD REGISTRATION ITEM link that appears in the block of text below the registration summary. On the screen that appears, click the Child Info link (STEP 4), then add the next child you wish to register.
When you are satisfied with the registration information displayed, click the SELECT PAYMENT OPTION button to continue.
Read the explanations of the payment options, then select payment option you prefer (Online Payment (credit card) or Offline Payment).
If you pay online, the registration system will email you a receipt that you can use to claim the federal Children’s Fitness Tax Credit.
Because BLRC uses ITSportsNet, you can feel safe and secure when providing your personal information:
- All information within the members area is 128-bit encrypted (the same as online banking)
- Credit card information is never stored
- With multiple back-ups, the latest firewall technology and advanced physical security, your data is secure
If you are paying by credit card, fill in the required information and click the CheckOut button once only to make your payment.
If you have chosen to pay offline, you must present payment, in cash or by cheque made out to the Burnaby Lake Rugby Club, along with your invoice to the coach or manager of your child’s team.
No matter what payment option you choose, be sure to print and fill out a Rugby Canada Registration Certificate. This certificate provides insurance, and it must be returned to your child’s coach before he or she can participate in rugby.
When you are finished, click the Print Page link to print your invoice.
Win-Win Lottery & Club Shop Voucher
The British Columbia Rugby Union requires all of its member rugby clubs to sell a certain number of books of Win-Win Lottery tickets. BLRC is on the hook for the cost of the tickets, whether or not they are sold. On the plus side, the Club makes money for every book of tickets sold over the quota. The WinWin lottery has the potential to be a major fundraiser for the Club.
To encourage sales, the Club provides an incentive system to motivate players to get out and sell WinWin tickets. Players who sells certain numbers of books are rewarded according to the table below.
- One book sold = Free BLRC Golf Shirt
- Three books sold = Free pair of BLRC game socks
- Five books sold = Free pair of BLRC game shorts
The rewards above are cumulative. If you sell five books, you get the socks and the shorts!
Players, or parents of players, who have paid their dues in full and returned the proceeds from selling WinWin Lottery tickets can obtain a voucher to claim their rewards at the Club shop.
