"Touch Rugby" for Practice/Play
for those programs approved by and registered with Rugby Indiana**
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It is important to note that these protocols are always superseded by Federal, State, and Local directives for COVID.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.
USA Rugby is using a new system nation wide. This new system breaks out the fees, and handles them in a different way then in the past. In the past Rugby Indiana had collected the USA Rugby Fees and pay them for the player. This has changed.
Fall Competitive Season Fees
Students must be currently enrolled in grades 9-12 and meet Rugby Indiana eligibility for high school requirements to participate in this registration session for the Rugby Indiana Fall Competitive Touch Season.
** The USA Rugby Fee is an annual fee, so players who also play in the spring will not pay this fee at that time, and should see an actual reduction to the total spring fees.
Fall Training Period Season Fees
++ The USA Rugby Fee is an annual fee, so players who also play in the spring will need to upgrade their USAR Membership to the full season fee of $25.
