WRFL Trainer card

Following WRFL approval of your registration, you will be issued with a trainer’s card valid for the 2023 season, which you’ll need to carry on you at all times on Game Day.

On the Registration form, Trainers can opt for either a Mobile Version or a Hard copy trainers’ card.

If you choose a hard copy, you will receive an email once it’s been printed and available to be picked up from the WRFL Office. In the event, a hard copy replacement card is required a $5.00 fee per card will be applied.

Please allow at least 24 hours for the registration to be processed and for both the digital & hard copy versions to be finalised. During peak times please allow up to 72 hours.


What are the next steps?

If you are a WRFL trainer and you haven’t completed an ERC course to date, then you will need to attend and complete an ERC course to be an eligible trainer for the upcoming season and beyond.

A current First Aid Level 2 certificate must be provided during enrolment for the ERC.
