Current Status Is: Touch Rugby
Tackle Rugby is NOT allowed for matches / practices.
Below is the Rugby Indiana COVID Return-To-Play Protocols. These are to be following by all programs approved by and registered with Rugby Indiana.
Players, Parents, Coaches, Administrators, etc - please be sure to read and understand this protocol.
It is important to note that these protocols are always superseded by Federal, State, and Local directives for COVID. Programs/Clubs/Teams are to follow those directives.
All players, coaches, administrators (around the coaches/players) will need to be part of the InjureFree system used for daily reporting. Failure to report will result in a person not being eligible for practices/matches on those days. Failure to report for multiple days may result in the requirement to self-quarantine.
Temperature checks will be made for everyone attending matches, including spectators.
In consideration of the “Back On Track Indiana” roadmap to safely open Indiana, Rugby Indiana suggests that all players take a COVID test before participating in any rugby matches. The Indiana Sate Department of Health has free testing / free tests sites available.
Practices: Under the current Return To Play Protocol no spectators are allowed at any practices. Anyone who is not players, coaches, etc., should not be any place around the practice areas.
Matches: Under the current Return To Play Protocol only members of the immediate household may attend matches. They should remain in their household groups, and separate from other groups by 6 feet. Masks are required.
Rugby Indiana Refund Policy
Season Suspension / Cancelation Due To Force Majeure
Player’s fees are allocated throughout the entire year to cover all the costs of the services that are needed to support the various rugby programs and leagues. This is a common practice, especially for non-profits. Throughout the year we host coaching and referee certification clinics, coaching development, youth skills clinics, school PE training and grants, player welfare/safety monitoring and training, compliance monitoring of safety and other important policies, technology tools, club support, and so much more. Because Force Majeure is difficult to predict in type, timing, and scope of impact, we are unable to determine in advance any amount of refunds may be issued, if any at all. If there are any refunds due to Force Majeure, they will be determined based on the type, timing, and scope of the event.
