Cheques payable to Buccaneers


Membership Subscription Rates for the coming 2014/15 season have been set. Rates have been retained the same as last season, which saw significant reductions for most members and a number of *incentives added to encourage payment of Subs.

The club gratefully appreciates all who pay their membership subscriptions, which is a key income. But, disappointingly, some sectors are not contributing as they should. However, if every member (be they player young or old, alecadoo, volunteer, coach, manager, etc)  paid, then the rates could be reduced even further in the future. With the club fielding up to 20 teams during the season, costs re facilites, pitches, equipment, jerseys, footballs, buses, showers, floodlighting, etc., are substantial. Payment of subscription can be spread, if necessary. Of course anyone's difficult financial circumstances will be taken into consideration and Buccaneers RFC will do all we can to ensure no one is denied participation.

All Subscriptions are due by October 31st by which date they must be paid in full before representing the club at any level.

NOTE:- The IRFU recommends that each player undertake their own Personal Accident Insurance cover against any injury sustained from playing the game itself during the rugby season. The club does NOT compensate for any medical expenses incurred.
