Rugby Illinois

2016/2017 Player Signup


Please read this before you begin...

Welcome to Rugby Illinois, the governing organization for youth rugby in Illinois.

All players must register through this site.  Once registered you will be a member of both Rugby Illinois and USA Rugby.

Coaches, administrators, referees, and other adult volunteers must register on the adult volunteers form.

It can take 1-2 weeks to appear on the USA Rugby membership site (updates typically appear on Thursday), but once your registration is complete and paid through Rugby Illinois, you are immediately entitled to all the benefits of membership.

Before you begin, be prepared by having a credit card or debit card ready for payment.  

  1. The fee is $45 for high school, $35 for middle school, and $5 for rookie rugby (varsity initiative team players have no fee unless playing in the fall or summer).
  2. If you cannot afford the fees or do not have a credit/debit card, please contact your coach about available scholarships from your club. If approved, you coach can email for a discount code that can be applied, and your club will be billed the cost.

Also, please note that you will need to create a SportsEngine account for this website if you do not have one. This is not the same as your USA Rugby membership account used in 2015 or earlier.

Parents: Please use (or create) your own personal SportsEngine account to log-in to register your children.  Once you log-in and start the process you will be asked to select your child from the list (or to add the child by selecting "New Person" when prompted). You may register all members of your family in a single session or may return here later to add another registration. 

Coaches/Admins: While we expect players to be registered by parents (or themselves if age 18), which allows for a more streamlined online process, we realize that some clubs may process registrations centrally. In that case the person registering the players is taking responsibility for having signed paperwork in hand before registering players and for keeping those organized in a binder on hand at matches ready for inspection on demand. 

Varsity Program Rosters:  Players participating on school-sponsored "varsity" program teams should register here to be included in the team's roster (or added here by the coach). No payment will be required for players on these teams. Participation in off-season matches (including fall rugby and summer sevens or with the Tornados select side) will require registration with payment. Please select the appropriate option when prompted.
