  • USA Rugby Club Registration and Player CIPP

CIPP officially opens August 31st (2 days!), we will be confirming that your players/team is CIPP’d prior to your first match.
  • Match Requirements (Pre, Week of and Post Match)
    • Schedule Confirmation (Pre)
      • Once your Division schedule has been loaded into the TRU Calendar, please confirm that the game is correct including the HOME vs AWAY and the location matches the HOME team. Also note that the location MUST be an exact pitch address.
    • Referee Confirmation (Week of)
      • Monday – Contact referee for your match using the contact information on the Referee List. If a referee has not been scheduled, immediately contact the referee scheduler in your area.
        • If you view the details of your event on the TRU Calendar, it should say Referee: First Last Name (Confirmed). This does mean they are confirmed, if you don’t see that or it says Pending, feel free to reach out to admin@texasrugbyunion.com.
      • Wednesday  – If you have received no response from the referee (Referee List) by Wednesday evening, call your Referee Scheduler.
