(the Form MUST be filled out by each player before check-in)
Photo ID (drivers license, passport, etcetera)
CIPP card (or copy of USA Rugby CIPP page for your
Team with name[s] highlighted)
Proof of Health Insurance (if the players name is
not on, for example, the insurance card, generally where the person is covered
under a parent's or spouse's policy, you need not only the proof of the policy,
but also that the individual player is in fact covered under the policy).
Proof of citizenship, resident alien, or resident
player status (if applicable, i.e. copy of
birth certificate, passport, green card, or resident player documentation). See

single sheet for each player, and on that one sheet have a copy of the players
photo ID, CIPP card, proof of health insurance, and proof of
citizenship/resident player status. Put them in the binder in alphabetical
order. This will make things much easier at check in for the
Midwest Tournament as well as for Nationals. Plus, it is a useful resource

For check in, each Team is to give their binder
(if they have one) to the person checking in players and to line up their
players in alphabetical order by last name. Each player should have with them
the 4 items mentioned above in case the photocopies are not legible. Each
player will be checked-in in order, and the
whole process should not take very long at all (5-10 minutes) if we do it in an
