2018 Reminders – Fall Season

We hope you had a great summer! As we begin building to the fall we wanted to send out the annual club reminders and guide.

Other Reminders

  • Register your club and begin CIPPing players.

    • Coaches must have at least a L200 certification
    • Clubs must have at least 15 players
    • If the above are NOT met or a club is in “pending” or “grace period” on the USAR membership website, referees WILL NOT BE ASSIGNED.
  • Confirm schedule in Who’s the Ref including (TRU schedules will be loaded in the next two weeks):

    • Pitch location

Match Day Procedures

While the match day procedures have been in place for 5+ years we continually have clubs that are non-compliant every week. Your team is responsible for knowing and following all policies or there may be competition or disciplinary sanctions: http://texasrugbyunion.com/administration/operating-policies/.
