For new and returning players, here is some important information to help you prepare for the season.
USA Rugby Membership
It is mandatory for all players on Virginia Rugby to be a registered member of USA Rugby and to complete the USA Rugby Club Individual Participation Program (CIPP) registration process. You only need to register once a year, but all memberships expire on August 31st of every year and must be renewed every August. Players will not be allowed to practice with the club until they are CIPP'ed.
Virginia Rugby Club Dues
Club dues are $60 for rookies and $120 for veterans per season. Fall & Spring are considered separate seasons for dues. You are classified as a rookie for your first two playing seasons (i.e. Fall & Spring). Dues can be played through the club's PayPal button below. Select the appropriate dues from the drop-down and click add to cart. If you are paying dues in installments you must clear that in advance with a club officer. You do not need a PayPal account to complete the check out process. You will receive a VRFC match warm-up shirt when you pay dues for the first time.
