ELIGIBILITY:

 

 

 

Each Team may carry an unlimited roster for the weekend.  To make a copy of the 'Roster Form' click here.  Make more than one copy if you have more than 28 players, or copy and paste into a Word document and make your own roster.  There's also an Online Interactive Roster Form that let's you fill it out online, and send to whomever you wish . . .you need to have Microsoft Office 2003 or higher to use that function . . . for that Roster click here.

 

All players must meet the USA Rugby Eligibility Regulations for the National All Star Championships.  To read all the USA Rugby Eligibility Guidelines click here.  You will need Adobe Reader to read the guidelines . . . to download the free version click here.  One quick note of importance is the difference between the eligibility of Collegiate Men and U23 Women . . . Collegiate Men must be fulltime students, or show, from the Registrars Office, that they are in their last semester before graduating, i.e., a student only needs to be registered in one class if said student is in their last semester before graduating . . . there is NO age limit for the Men.  U23 Women don't need to be in school at all, simply under 23 years old.

 

Each player will need to present the following items:

  1. Photo ID (drivers license, passport, etcetera)

  2. CIPP card (or copy of USA Rugby CIPP page for your Team with name[s] highlighted)

  3. 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).

  4. 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 the USA Rugby web site for more information.

A recommendation: 

If you haven't already done so, put together a binder containing a 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 (quick access to a players health insurance info if necessary, for example).

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 organized fashion.

If you have any questions please contact . . .
