With the previously announced change of Texas from and LAU to a GU, membership registration with USA Rugby has been delayed one week to 8/22.
This was done so that USA can change/update its CIPP programming to accommodate the new organizational changes and fee structures that are in place as of this weekend by USA Congress.

Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Be a USA Rugby Member
10) We’ve got you covered if you have a rugby accident.
USA Rugby members registered for the 2011-2012 Membership Season will receive up to $250,000 of accident insurance. That means if you’re injured playing, refereeing, or even coaching, you’ll have medical coverage. If you have primary health insurance, your USA Rugby Accident Insurance coverage could pay the deductible and cover other out-of-pocket expenses.
9) Keep some money in your pocket by getting great discounts from USA Rugby’s partners!
Save money and support the game you love when you use USA Rugby’s corporate partners such as Hilton Worldwide, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, T-Mobile, Bank of America, and many more! Click here to see a full list of member benefits.
8) Get a shot at glory! USA Rugby Members can compete for National Championships!
In 2010-2011, USA Rugby crowned 21 National Champions. USA Rugby members get a chance at making American rugby history by becoming a National Champion in 2011-2012!
7) If you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.
USA Rugby’s Membership Department will have extended service hours in September and October to provide better customer service. They will be available to answer your questions and help if you should run into any problems with registration. Business hours for September and October are 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Mountain Time and 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Saturdays!
6) Your USA Rugby Liability Insurance can help you find a place to play!
When you register as a USA Rugby member, you automatically receive third party liability insurance. Most venues, facilities and sponsors require this form of insurance, so you’ll be covered. This policy also helps reduce your personal liability.

Referee and coaching courses are held exclusively for USA Rugby members so you can hone your skills and knowledge to make you a more effective coach or referee! Attending these courses is a great way to learn more about the game, connect with your local coaching and refereeing communities, and help to improve the quality of American rugby.
4) We keep our members safe!
In the 2011-2012 season, all Rookie Rugby, youth, high school and college coaches will undergo a thorough background screening to ensure members will enjoy a safe environment in which to play the game.
