All coaches and assistant coaches must be registered with USA Rugby and certified at Level 100 or higher. Each middle school or high school club participating in contact rugby must have at least one coach certified at Level 200 or higher. All club officers and other volunteers with extensive contact with players must also register with USA Rugby as an administrator.

Other requirements

Besides registering teams to participate in a developmental or competitive season, each club must also do the following on an annual basis:

  1. Submit the list of trainers or other match-day medical officers to the Rugby Illinois Compliance Officer and Medical Officer at for approval. For newly registered personnel, you may be asked for evidence of qualifications. No matches will be scheduled without completing this step.
  2. Submit an Emergency Action Plan for the season to the Rugby Illinois Compliance Officer and Medical Officer at for approval. There is a link to a guide at No matches will be scheduled without completing this step.

New Clubs and/or New Teams

New rugby clubs must be approved by the Executive Committee before player registrations will be accepted. Please submit a new club application prior to registering your team(s). If your club application is approved, you will be notified when you can register your team(s) and begin registering players.

New teams that are part of the same rugby club do not require separate approval. However, adding a team with a new membership level requires that you submit a request to USA Rugby as a new “club” in order to register players.

If your club needs a Certificate of Insurance (COI) to reserve field or meeting space, please use this link to submit your requests to USA Rugby.
