2018 Vulture Season Information
National Governing Body Registration. USA Rugby requires registration for all rugby participants in the United States. If you are sure you will be part of the team, we will help you register tonight. You cannot practice until you are registered (Liability issue).
The fee is $35 for HS and $25 for Middle School. Registration can be completed (or renewed) online at: https://webpoint.usarugby.org/
This registration process also gives you liability and accident insurance (https://www.usarugby.org/insurance/) as well as several additional benefits, which can be reviewed at: https://www.usarugby.org/benefits/
Parent Advisory Group. Will be starting the season off with a new group helping the coaches with policy, finances, and support decisions. If you would like to be part of this process, please let Harry know. The meetings will be open to all, but we will schedule them at a time when most of the volunteers can attend. We begin meeting in January and monthly during the season to make sure all the details are covered.
Dues. $75 Per player. CLICK HERE TO PAY
Discounts are available for certain circumstances (for example, if you bring somebody, or have a second family member or are a member of the advisory group). Contact Coach Aaron for details. We are also looking for sponsorships. If you or your company would like to make a tax deductible donation, please contact Coach Aaron, firstname.lastname@example.org
Equipment. Dues will cover the costs of shorts, socks and mouth pieces, which the players may keep. (you might want to purchase another back up mouthpiece to carry in your kit bag… you cannot play without one and they some tend to get lost…..). Practice balls and equipment will be provided but some players like to purchase their own balls for play outside of practice.
